With Mario taking a break in this twist on New Super Mario Bros. U, Luigi takes centre stage bringing a set of skills to players in New Super Luigi U. Available at retail stores from today, New Super Luigi U is a standalone title designed exclusively for Wii U.
Luigi can jump much higher and further than Mario, and is able to cross chasms and reach platforms that Mario never could in a single jump. Players better watch out though, as Luigi finds it a lot harder to stop once he starts moving. Take on the challenge with friends in multiplayer in New Super Luigi U, where players can join Luigi as Yellow Toad, Blue Toad or Nabbit – a character first seen in New Super Mario Bros. U – and now playable for the first time. Nabbit brings his own nifty skills to the table; he is invincible which will make life easier with enemies and obstacles, and any items he collects are converted into 1-Ups at the end of the course.
Nabbit is perfect for beginners and when paired with Luigi, he offers a whole new multiplayer experience. Or join in with Boost Mode and help Luigi to reach new areas and jump further by dropping blocks into the course with the Wii U GamePad touchscreen for the ultimate speed run.
Already available as a downloadable content (DLC) update for owners of New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U is available as a standalone product at retail stores from today.
