The Year of Luigi, Nintendo’s year-long celebration involving the green Mario brother, will come to an end on March 18th, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has announced via Miiverse.
“Almost a year has passed since I announced the Year of Luigi, marking the 30th anniversary of Luigi’s debut,” Miyamoto writes. “Thanks to everyone’s kind support, we were able to release many Luigi games over the course of the year. I hope everyone continues to cheer for the green brother!”
“However, all good things must come to an end, and the Year of Luigi will conclude on March 18,” Miyamoto continues. “From this date on, the Year of Luigi Community and its Developers’ Room will sadly no longer accept new posts or comments.”
With exactly a month to go before the Year of Luigi officially comes to an end, it should be interesting to see if Nintendo have any last-minute announcements in store before the deadline arrives, or whether Miyamoto’s message was simply meant to serve as a heads-up for Miiverse users that use the Luigi community.
