Nintendo kicks off the Year of Luigi

by William Schwartz


Nintendo announced this morning that they will be releasing Luigi themed DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U that provides alternate versions of the original game world.  Even better news, this means you’ll have a good reason to dust-off NSMBU and head back into the mushroom kingdom, instead of continuing to have a staring contest with the new console.

Players will be able to freely change between the “Super Luigi U” stages and the existing Super Mario Bros. U stages.  This will be the first of many appearances for Mario’s right hand man in 2013. There’s the upcoming Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon which is due to arrive in March, he’ll also be found in Mario and Luigi: Dream Team and Mario Golf this summer.

A recent Nintendo Direct presentation showed that Nintendo has a ton of first party content coming to both the Wii U and 3DS in the coming months.
