Luigi will become the star of the show in New Super Luigi U, a downloadable campaign for New Super Mario Bros. U, this summer, Nintendo announced today.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata demonstrated how Luigi stands out from his brother during this morning’s Nintendo Direct. As the more lithe of the Mario brothers, Luigi can jump higher and slide farther. New Super Luigi U does more than just dump Luigi on the screen, however—it also changes up New Super Mario Bros. U’s 82 levels to create a fresh, new experience for players.
New Super Luigi U will launch this summer in North America and Europe, June in Japan. No mention of how much the DLC will cost, or if it be available for free.
