Reggie Fils-Aime Confirms The Year of Luigi Will Continue into 2014

Twinfinite writes, "Eagle eyed Nintendo fans might have noticed that 2013 was not officially declared the Year of Luigi until February of this year. Siliconera asked if this meant that the year of Luigi ends with 2013 or if it rolls over into 2014 right from where it started. Reggie confirmed that yes, the Year of Luigi will continue just a little bit into 2014 with a few remaining events planned as well as special ceremonial items such as the official Year of Luigi wiimotes and 3DS models still being available in the early parts of the year." (3DS, Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime, Retro, Wii U)

loving the 3DS version. Actually had a blast playing the online multiplayer in that game.
for we are many  +   630d ago
Me too, I finished it and even played online(which I tend not to do very much), and I have nothing but praise and recommendation for this game, extremely fun, polished and has a unique atmosphere. Imagine if it gets a Wii U release with Gamepad as The Poltergust!!
that would be an extremely fun game to be had.

No, no, no. They need to stop this sequeling of 3DS games on Wii U (granted LM didn't start on 3DS, but it's the first installment in 2 generations). If they keep having less than unique games releasing between them, people will keep buying the 3DS and ignoring the Wii U.

...of course if they want to finally have a wiimote contolled Luigi's Mansion, as they should have had on Wii, then I'd love to see that.

i disagree, Luigi's mansion imo is too good for a handheld

a new Luigi's mansion that is built up on wiiu will be crazy

can't u see the potential of Wiiu GFX and gamepad integration for that game??

My point isn't how it fits on Wii U, it's the fact that they're sharing too many games between the Wii U and 3DS, and most of them starting on 3DS.

What are these other Wii U games that are sequels to 3DS games?

:/

"They need to stop this sequeling of 3DS games on Wii U"

Sorry, but I gotta disagree with you on this one.
A Wii U sequel to Kid Icarus Uprising is one of my fondest wishes.

3D world and New Super Mario Brothers started on 3/DS then came to console.

Huzzah! More Luigi! We need more Luigi.

oh thank god! now I can finally rest.

Why... i want a year of something else.. Although this confirms some kind of luigi game in 2014, but the point is for it to be a year....
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   630d ago
You.....didn't read the article, did you?
As of February of 2014, it will be a year since the Year of Luigi began.
Not before.
_QQ_  +   630d ago
Thats lame because they won't announce the next year of along with the games untill march,yeah i didn't since its only a few sentences long so i didn't think theree was much other info, i still think it should end at the end of the year though.
SilentNegotiator  +   630d ago
The second-banana of the Mario Brothers probably isn't the best image for your console, Nintendo.
SpiralTear  +   630d ago
Don't people complain about Mario a lot? Why not give Luigi more spotlight?
SilentNegotiator  +   630d ago
You know that changing hat color isn't what fixes that complaint.

Ive had it. There are not to many mario games, stop this bs already. Mario Kart and Smash Bros have Mario in them, but are totally different genres, Mario is nintendos mascot, so they use him for their fun games. "d and 3D Mario are not the same. Talking about 1 console, there is only 1-2 of its kind per generation. CoD got 9 installments on Xbox360 and on PS3 8-9 and then there are the CoD Handheld games. If you count a 3DS Mario game as one of the main Mario games, then we should also count every handheld assassins creed and CoD and so on. Acting like they use Mario to much is totally biased and wrong.

We need a year of Wario. Remember Wario World for GameCube? A fantastic game that deserves a second outing, as Wario just doesn't get enough love!

Proof that you can't kill a god. Praise Luigi.
josephayal  +   630d ago
I thought it would be the Year of Yoshi next year, anyway a Super Luigi 3D World would be great
Nerdmaster  +   630d ago
Mario & Luigi Dream Team had the best Luigi characterization ever.
LOL_WUT  +   630d ago
I hope this doesn't become a trend the year of Toad, the year of Yoshi etc ;)

bad news..
if you dont like luigi

like i dont.

two years of luigi... gees. this is why nintendo is losing. nobody wants luigi themed stuff.

we want f zero. we want star fox. we want wave race, earthbound and all the other games you have neglected.

but no, more luigi.

It's right in the summary genius. Can you not even muster the meager effort to read more than the title?

even a year is a year too long. its a bad idea. what a waste of time, energy and resources. promoting luigi, who everyone is already aware of.

it seems they want to hype luigi up, for what? so they can bring out an 'all new' platform/adventure game with luigi as the star, and think that will satisfy peoples appetites for something different? its luigi, marios brother. basically, mario in green who jumps a little higher.

as i said before, instead of promoting luigi, they should promote samus, fox mccloud or any other character that would be worthy of a years worth of promotion.
link2Dpast  +   630d ago
So basically as long as the wiiU is out its always the year of luilly, so Nintendo literally saying wiiU is their Luilly the under achiever lol. J/k love Nintendo, just a joke that came to me

we need a year of starfox!
