Let's look at why Nintendo thinks 2013 will be the year of Luigi
As many of you are probably aware, Nintendo held another Nintendo Direct today and it looks like Luigi will finally have his time to shine. Nintendo announced that 2013 will be the year of Luigi and their upcoming line-up of games reflect that. They touched a bit more on Luigi’s spooktacular adventure Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, but then revealed a few unannounced titles as well.
The first is a new Mario RPG called Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. While it looks to still star the man in red, Mario will be diving into Luigi’s dreams (Inception anyone?). We don’t really have much information on the game as a whole, but it looks to be arriving in North America this summer.
Then you have New Super Mario Bros. U getting a Luigi specific expansion. Specifically called New Super Luigi U, the expansion or “large scale” DLC will have Luigi playing through remixed version of the original levels. Again, not much else to go on, but it will be available for download on the eShop later this year.
Lastly, Luigi will be a playable character in Mario Golf World Tour. Yup, this somehow is supposed to surprise us. The game will be launching exclusively for 3DS this summer.
More Nintendo Direct news is inbound, but until then, how’s it looking so far g1s?
I like how the Luigi for the Golf game was supposed to be a surprise. Regardless, my brother will like the recognition that Luigi is getting.
13 may be an unlucky number, but 2013 is an entirely different number.
His dreams probably include Daisy and Waluigi, you figure out what dreams they're in.
Luigi's dreams eh? There's probably some pretty dark stuff in there. His subconscious mind will probably reveal his deep resentment of Mario after spending decades in his shadow. Who knows what sick thoughts lie beneath that cap? What dreams of chronic and sustained cruelty?
Oh good, actual worthwhile DLC! (something we dont see too often nowdays) thought for a second it'd be a handful of stages and a green skin! lol
O_O ER MAH GERD... Nintendo set him up, clever bastards.
I find it funny that 2013 is the year of Luigi. You know, 13? The Unlucky Number? Can't be a coincidence.
I CANNOT GOD DAMN WAIT FOR MARIO AND LUIGI DREAM TEAM!!!!
You have NO clue how much I love those games.
I love the Mario and Luigi RPGs
I can never have enough Luigi! It also makes up for the fact they almost forgot to put him on the Mario Party box.
Good! I have always had respect for Luigi.
As for Waluigi.... Wait, who is Waluigi?
It's about time Luigi was given some respect from Nintendo.
I guess Nintendo REEALLY do care of Luigi after all. Finally The Green Stache Thunder got sum RESPECT.
I can think of one man who's pissed off at this.
'Bout time Green got some goddamn respect!
Hell yeah, new Mario & Luigi! Can't wait to hear more about it. :D
calling it now 2013 year of swagger
Personally, I'm excited for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team as well as the expansion, New Super Luigi U!
