Hey there gamers, Mumble here bringing you the latest in things Nintendo.
In the history of Mario games, Mario has always taken center stage in most of his adventures, but always among the sidelines
you can see his green brother always trucking behind.
Despite his brother always coming out on top, Luigi has maintained a strong community following since early Mario games.
In recognition of Luigi’s hard efforts to keep up with the publicized red plumber, Nintendo has officially announced that this
year, being the year of 2013, will officially be known as the “Year of the Luigi”.
Mario will be stepping down off of his high horse and share the spotlight with his young brother as Nintendo introduced a
variety of Luigi based games on their consoles.
To lead off the year we will be seeing Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. The quickly approaching games launched everywhere on
March 23rd and will offer a large variety of locations and ghosts hiding about that Luigi is tasked with dusting away. This
game will also include a multiplayer setting where you can play locally with friends or over the network with people around
the world. So far the multiplayer types include:
Hunter – Teams will work together and competitively to capture the most amount of ghosts on the floor.
Rush – Teams will have a variety of rooms to explore, each having to eventually make their way to the exit before the time
Chase – Players race around the room, tasked with catching all the Polterpups.
Nintendo has also announced that Super Mario Bros U will feature a Luigi DLC, which will change the very face of the game,
setting everything to a Luigi theme. This DLC will feature new levels and remade worlds to match up with the green plumber
so look forward to that over the next few months.
A new Mario and Luigi title will be coming out later on in the year, as well as a new Mario Golf game.
Well that’s all for now folks,
Feel free to leave a comment below on what your favorite Luigi moment in any previous Mario title is.
Mine probably being back in Super Mario World for the SNES, where it doesn’t matter if Luigi clears a castle or not, the credits
for doing so will always go to Mario.
