Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros. unfurls December release date

Tearaway success?

3DS role-player Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros. launches in Europe on 4th December, Nintendo has announced.

The game was previously expected to arrive after Christmas - and it is still down for a North American launch in 2016.

Its move to before the end of the year goes some way to filling the gap in Nintendo's line-up left by Wii U shooter Star Fox Zero's recent move into next year.

Paper Jam Bros. is the fifth Mario & Luigi RPG title and also a crossover with the separate Paper Mario series of games.

Mario & Luigi's usual dual battle system is now a three-man affair, with Paper Mario joining and providing new pages of abilities.
