This exclusive large-scale Downloadable Content will include reworkings of all 80 existing levels where you play exclusively as Luigi! That’s right, the eternal understudy steps into a starring platforming role for the first time EVER! These levels will be much more challenging, offering fans of the game some new content to bite into.
From the official press release:
“To continue the fun of New Super Mario Bros. U for Wii U, Nintendo is letting Luigi take over in new downloadable content that is coming in the Year of Luigi that provides alternate versions of the game’s more than 80 stages. Players can freely change between the New Super Luigi U and New Super Mario Bros. U stages. These Luigi-focused stages provide a whole new level of game-play challenge and will be available for purchase as a single download.”
Not a lot of details were released on the project, but very cool video was shown of Luigi gameplay, and it looks as good as the real deal in the full game! Exciting stuff for Luigi fans, who also have Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon, to look forward too, as well as Luigi appearing in major roles with a new Mario Golf 3DS title and more this year.
