Nintendo is celebrating Luigi this year. Not only is he getting his very own special edition 3DS XL in Japan, complete with a green silhouette pattern of Luigi, but he’s also getting his name up in the spotlight in the upcoming New Super Luigi U.
New Super Luigi U is downloadable content for New Super Mario Bros. U and is scheduled to be available this summer. You’ll need a copy of the game to be able to enjoy the new DLC, which will include 82 updated courses and a new adventure featuring Luigi.
You can look forward to overcoming obstacles and solving puzzles as Luigi, who can jump higher than Mario but has trouble stopping after a dash. To make things even more challenging some stages will start with only 100 seconds on the timer, and quicker stages are said to be populated with many obstacles.
You can see Luigi in action in the new screenshots below.
