“Year of Luigi”, Nintendo Sidetracking

Mario is the character we all know and love, why is the focus going to Luigi? This change seems a little strange. Along with this the Wii U is struggling with sales. Why would Nintendo focus on Mario’s brother instead of Mario himself? This seems like an odd solution to Nintendo’s problems.

Because they had put too much focus on Mario
Share the spotlight with his bro Luigi

I always thought Luigi was cooler.

It's not really a focus. More like fan service. Super Luigi U and Luigi's Mansion were announced. What else after that? A slew of other Mario games.

Not only that the new Mario and Luigi RPG is focused in luigis's dreams.

Fair enough, but it's not really enough to justify calling it a "Luigi" experience when you're still playing as Mario. At least in Luigi's Mansion and Super Luigi U you're actually playing as Luigi.

Luigi has his fans, I remember the backlash when the Gamecube launched with Luigi's Mansion, now that game is looked at like a gem and people asked for another so often that they made a sequel for the 3DS.

I personally prefer Luigi being that I'm a younger brother, so I'm definitely all in for the year of Luigi.

I think they should've made Luigi's Mansion 2 for the Wii U, but that's just me.

but what problems? the wii u sales are good, especially when you compare ps3 first three months at 1.7 million, world wide, and the 360 at 1.8 million systems world wide, 3 million is actually great, see so wait until the e3, mario, zelda, smash bros, and the other big guns will get sales going even more.

How are those sales distributed? All we've seen recently are poor sales for the device.

The only reason why it appears to be doing so well is because of the exceptional launch. Sales have been pretty bad since then.

wait until the e3, sales will pick up, and wait until sony and microsoft release their machines, let's see how they sell, in this rough economy, they may do no better than the wii u, then what will you say?
