News: The Year of Luigi, featuring Luigi’s Mansion 2, Mario & Luigi 4, and Luigi-themed NSMBU DLC

new_super_luigi_uFollowing Mario’s starring role in an assortment of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U titles last year, 2013 marks the year of Luigi – which is kickstarted next month by the release of Luigi’s Mansion 2.

Hot on the ghost game’s heels, Camelot is developing Mario Golf: World Tour, which will heavily feature the green sibling; whilst a fourth game in the Mario & Luigi handheld RPG series – Mario & Luigi: Dream Team – will also release this summer.

And perhaps most interestingly, Nintendo is also working on “large scale downloadable content for New Super Mario Bros. U” – entitled New Super Luigi U – which will see the green plumber take a starring role in a re-skinned update to the Wii U launch title.
