Nintendo announced some fresh information for New Super Luigi U during this morning’s Nintendo Direct.
Mario does not appear in the game, so that means we need a fourth character for multiplayer. Gamers will be able to play as Nabbit.
Nabbit was the thief that players had to chase after in New Super Mario Bros. U. Now he’s a friend with unique abilities: he packs the same speed and jump, but he can’t use power-ups. Instead? He’s invincible against enemies.
Nabbit will only be available in multiplayer mode.
New Super Luigi U offers 82 new courses. It also offers up something a little special. Gamers will get a special standalone packaging for the title. That will ship independently on August 25th, 2013.
New Super Luigi U will hit as DLC on June 20th, 2013.
The DLC will sell for $19.99, the packaged retail version will sell for $29.99.
