As well as featuring in new Mario Golf, and Mario & Luigi games, Luigi will play the staring role in Luigi’s Mansion 2 on Nintendo 3DS, which will launch in Europe next month and is of course a sequel to the GameCube original. Iwata also announced ‘New Super Luigi U’, add-on DLC for New Super Mario Bros U, in which Luigi is playable in re-worked levels from the original game. The New Super Luigi DLC is set to be released this summer on the Wii U eShop, but no price has been announced yet.
