So far, I'm disappointed. From what I'm seeing, it looks to be nothing more than bunch of Sticker Star pandering, despite the fact that most people in the fandom want to forget it ever existed, since it's the game that single-handedly ruined the Paper Mario series. Adding insult to injury, they make Bowser the main villain again, despite already filling that role in two other RPGs recently (one in which they wasted the potential of a perfectly good villain just to make him look good).

At least we could consolate ourselves that they will not betray our hopes.
Like how Sticker Star promised to go back to TTYD roots and ended up into something completly different :/
Edit: Also oddly enough this game has a larger gap between the announcement and its release than the average M&L game (usually a M&L announced at this time would tend to come in october/november but this one come's out in Spring 2016)

It don't bother me too and as i said it's made by Alpha Dream, so i hope they will reserve us some twists.
What would bother me is if this game doesn't exploit the full potential of such crossover, you could have interesting cameos and nods, various fun interactions even with the OC's, both's series gameplay meshing up into something great.
So far my impression is that the whole thing look like Sticker Star: Mario & Luigi edition but i'm willing to wait since the game seems still in an early stage (the fact that the release date is farther than the average M&L seem to confirm this)
I doubt there will be many major crossovers between the OCs. Most of the OCs barely even reappear in their own series let alone a cross over.
My biggest concern is more from the gameplay side of things. Like are they gonna bring back dual worlds for a third time now? Because I hope not. Had enough of 2D sections and would rather have one nice detailed overworld
