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."

Luigi's mansion for Wiiu??

I'll lose my sh!t if it's LM wiiu

Neonridr1660d ago

loving the 3DS version. Actually had a blast playing the online multiplayer in that game.

for we are many1660d 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.

ape0071660d ago (Edited 1660d ago )

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??

SilentNegotiator1660d ago (Edited 1660d ago )

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.

deafdani1660d ago

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.

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....

wonderfulmonkeyman1660d 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_1660d 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.

SilentNegotiator1660d ago

The second-banana of the Mario Brothers probably isn't the best image for your console, Nintendo.

SpiralTear1660d ago

Don't people complain about Mario a lot? Why not give Luigi more spotlight?

SilentNegotiator1660d ago

You know that changing hat color isn't what fixes that complaint.

Chrischi19881660d ago

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.
