New Super Luigi U Video Shows Off Luigi And Mario Differences

By Ishaan . May 31, 2013 . 8:30am



New Super Luigi U will feature 82 new levels that have been optimized specifically for Luigi’s style of play. Each stage starts at 100 seconds and begins counting down, challenging you to complete it before the time runs out.


Nintendo have shared new footage of the game in Japan, which you can watch above. It shows off the differences in play-style between Mario and Luigi, including their jump height and break. Note that Mario himself is not present in New Super Luigi U at all. You’ll get to play as Luigi, Nabbit and two Toads. Watch the new footage above.


As previously detailed, New Super Luigi U will be available both as DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U or as a standalone game at retail. The download version will be released on June 20th in both North America and Europe.


Meanwhile, the packaged version will be released on August 25th in North America and July 27th in Europe. Unlike the download version, the packaged version will not require you to own a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U to play.

  • Luigi looking like he just came out of SMB2. Neat.

    They really should had Daisy as the princess you had to save and added Waluigi as a playable char. Anyway This reminds me of Super mario bros 2 but harder!! I’m hyped

    So. Nabbit is Tails from Sonic 2? (I.E. Completely invincible)


    On another note. Harder times, harder challenges, all to fit Luigi… Always suspected it but can I take this as a confirmation from Nintendo that Luigi is superior to/more talented then Mario, but forever stuck in his shadow because Mario’s the more popular guy at parties?

      I think that that has been the case, but who knows? Although Luigi’s is usually harder. Even in the SMG series.

  • I hated being put on a timer…
