The Year of Luigi keeps on steaming along. Nintendo President Satoru Iwata reminded us all during the Nintendo Direct conference this morning that Luigi has already starred in three games this year: New Super Luigi U, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.
The fun doesn’t stop there, as Iwata confirmed more games featuring Luigi are in the works and also showed off some screenshots of Luigi brawling with Pit, Mega Man, and others in the upcoming Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS, confirming his existence in the game.
I had mentioned in our Super Smash Bros: Should I Stay or Should I Go editorial that I hope Luigi would sport a new build because I’ve never enjoyed using him in the previous games, but from the screenshots alone, it looks like many of his traditional moves are already intact. Oh well. Dhalsim is my favorite Street Fighter character, and I am terrible with him too.
