Feature: A Short History of Luigi

This week, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon has been scaring — or more likely charming — 3DS owners in North America, while Europeans will get hold of the title very shortly. It represents Luigi's latest solo effort, as he chases ghosts with his Poltergust, with his widely acknowledged debut — bear with us, Mario is Missing fans — coming on the GameCube. It says much, arguably, for his status in the foundation years of Nintendo that it took until its fourth generation home console before Mario's younger brother stepped out from his shadow.

Still, it's all coming up Luigi. This is the Year of Luigi, after all, and there's more green in various Nintendo promotions than you'll see in Dublin on St. Patrick's Day — a lot of green, basically. In an effort to show how far he's come, here's a brief — by no means comprehensive — history of Luigi in Nintendo games. Nintendo Life doesn't claim this to be a full account — that could go on forever — but is a flavour of his role to date throughout Nintendo's system generations. (3DS, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

That was a good read; Luigi's my guy, so I'm happy to see Nintendo focusing on him more than his brother for once. :)
