New Super Luigi U

New Super Luigi U, a massive add-on for New Super Mario Bros. U and also available separately as a packaged version at retail, is a platforming game featuring Luigi. All 82 courses from New Super Mario Bros. U have been retooled with new challenging designs and features for this adventure!

Luigi can jump higher than Mario, but finds it a lot harder to stop moving once he gets going, so playing as him will be a whole new experience!

In multiplayer mode, you can also take control of the thieving Nabbit from the original game! He doesn’t take any damage from enemies, so he’s well-suited for less experienced players.

New Super Luigi U is available as add-on content for New Super Mario Bros. U, and as a standalone Game Disc distributed by Nintendo only during 2013 – The Year of Luigi! Find out more about Mario's original Wii U adventure at the New Super Mario Bros. U website.
