New Super Mario Brothers Wii U DLC Puts Luigi In The Spotlight

The House of Mario is celebrating Luigi's 30th anniversary by releasing several titles focusing on Mario's twin brother. The New Super Luigi U DLC will rework existing levels in New Super Mario Brothers Wii U to deliver new experiences where players will control only Luigi.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said that work on the DLC is akin to that done for a full game. The DLC will be available later this year via the Wii U eShop.


    Nintendo has got the hang of this paid dlc fiasco pretty quickly. Was wondering why you couldn't play 1p as Luigi.

    Reworked levels from NSMBU? Yet, they've put in just as much effort as they would for a full, standalone title? I'm calling shenanigans, but I'll still buy it.

    Looking forward to this. Hopefully DLC done right.

    I have never paid for DLC in the past. Didn't agree with. But for some reason I got excited at the prospect of this type of approach. Heck, I wouldn't even mind if they continued adding characters and their new levels to the Mario game throughout the life time of the Wii U. One big fat Mario game in one convenient place. Nintendo brings the love.
