Today’s Nintendo Direct was a celebration of Mario’s younger, thinner, sometimes Latino (when portrayed by John Leguizamo) brother, Luigi.
This morning, Satoru Iwata announced Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, New Super Luigi U, and Mario Golf: World Tour.
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team is an upcoming installment of the Mario & Luigi RPG series (the last installment was Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story). Think Mario & Luigi meets Inception: the game takes place in Luigi’s dreams, which are nothing short of bizarre. One shot showed many, many tiny Luigis rushing the screen. According to Iwata, Dream Team will come out on 3DS this summer.
New Super Luigi U is a major add-on for New Super Mario Bros. U, said to change the game’s 80-some courses into all-new levels and offer an experience that’s about as long as the full game itself. New Super Luigi U will be available on the Nintendo eShop sometime this year.
Last but not least is Mario Golf: World Tour, Camelot’s latest Mario golfing adventure for 3DS. World Tour is expected to release sometime this summer.
