Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (known in Japan as Mario & Luigi RPG, マリオ&ルイージRPG) is a role-playing video game for the Game Boy Advance, starring Mario and Luigi. It was developed by AlphaDream, with minigames from Vanpool and published by Nintendo.

The game has been followed by numerous newer entries in the series (see Super Mario Wiki article) both for Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS. In addition, an enhanced remake of Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga called Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions was released for Nintendo 3DS in October 2017.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga takes place in the Beanbean Kingdom. Mario and Luigi (and initially Bowser) join forces on a quest to recover Princess Peach's voice and stop the evil witch Cackletta from awakening the power of the legendary Beanstar which has the ability to grant wishes and fulfill anyone's greatest desires.

As with games in the Super Mario Advance series, a remake of the Mario Bros. arcade game with multiplayer was included in the game.

Relevance to The Legendary Starfy series

Starfy makes a cameo appearance in the Yoshi Theater, where he appears on the poster of a movie titled 'Legend of Stafy'. This was Starfy's first appearance outside of Japan. The artwork depicts the front cover of Densetsu no Starfy.

A similar poster is not known to appear in the Nintendo 3DS remake of the game (known as Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions). Instead, the posters in the Yoshi Theater are replaced with posters referencing other games in the Mario & Luigi series.
