Alphadream, most known for their work on the Mario & Luigi sub-series of games, are working on a new title evidenced by a series of newly patented images. On top of this, said images depict a new form of platforming (made expressly by the developer) - and it’s tailor-made for the 3DS.
This new form of side-scrolling platforming revolves around a combination of touch screen control and 3D images that depict the distance of platforms. It involves turning the nose of a cartoon man on the touch screen to move platforms on the top screen - it’s quite hard to fully describe without the images, so we have them after the jump.
Of course, the question must be asked - is this evidence of work on a new Mario & Luigi game? While we are already receiving a Mario RPG for the platform (Paper Mario: Sticker Star), Mario & Luigi games have been staples on Nintendo handhelds for years now - and these patented images look like they’d fit such a game perfectly.

I'm not so sure, but I would love to see it...

It could be - it looks like some kind of different gameplay, though M&L could get some magical item or something that allows them to manipulate stuff.

If it IS a new M&L game, I will be very excited.

Looks nifty, though I fail to see how that qualifies for a patent.
