Luigi Grabs The Limelight Today!

Sooooo…. when did we have an “old” Super Luigi? At any rate Mario’s little, taller brother finally gets to shine on his own — as downloadable add-on to “New Super Mario Bros. U” It’s out today for download.

Seeming like a shakey first step towards DLC, Nintendo finally leaps into the internet age. I haven’t played it yet but as a long-time fan of the SMB, series I’m looking foward to the jumping back into “New SMB U.”

Take on the challenge with friends in multiplayer in New Super Luigi U, where players can join Luigi as Yellow Toad, Blue Toad or Nabbit – a character first seen in New Super Mario Bros. U – and now playable for the first time! Nabbit brings his own nifty skills to the table; he is invincible which will make life easier with enemies and obstacles, and any items he collects are converted into 1-Ups at the end of the course. Nabbit is perfect for beginners and when paired with Luigi, he offers a whole new multiplayer experience. Or join in with Boost Mode and help Luigi to reach new areas and jump further by dropping blocks into the course with the Wii U Game Pad touch screen for the ultimate speed run!

Additionally Nabbit — the bandito bunny — joins in on the fun as a playable character!

“New Super Luigi U” is available via the Nintendo eShop today for $19.99 and will also be available in a stand-alone game disc on August 25 for $29.99.
