Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam has features to make things easier for newcomers
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam’s difficulty will probably be just fine for experienced players. However, if you’re a newcomer, Nintendo has included a couple of features to make things easier.
First up is the introduction of an Easy Mode, which increases your characters’ strength. Nintendo is also including an Assist Mode to help players know who enemies are targeting in battle. It’s also worth mentioning that Toad will give you some advice saying that you should stay in battles (as opposed to running away, which will ensure that you gain experience and level up), and that equipment should be regularly upgraded.
