Second Era: The Silver Sun is a crossover video game featuring Nintendo's greatest heroes and villains on a new quest to save the multiverse from the Silver Sun. It works very similarly to the Mario and Luigi games and is being developed by the same developers. It is set for a March 17th, 2014 release. It will be released on the Wii U and 3DS.
The player travels though overworlds in different fanchises, and players choose a character to control while the other choice follows. The two characters can switch roles at any time. Also, the player can swap characters with other unlocked ones. When an enemy on the screen is touched, a battle ensures where the two fighters take turns.
