Feb 14th, 2013

Iwata has proclaimed 2013 as the year of Luigi and he plans on capitalizing on that statement.  In today’s Nintendo Direct Iwata announced the first NSMBU DLC. It’s no small update as the game will be getting a complete overhaul featuring the one and only Luigi.  All of the existing courses will change, in-fact Iwata has compared the content to that of a full game.

Unfortunately we don’t have a release date for you except that it will be released sometime this year. This is still great news for us Luigi fans who have done everything there is to do in NSMBU. If you’re excited for Luigi awesomeness then let us know in the comments section below.

    Year of Luigi eh? Can’t wait ūüėõ

    • ¬†If they announced a pizza game, you would call it ‘awesome!”¬† You know this shit is corny.¬† You also know with more stuff like this, Nintendo cannot compete with the real deal.

      • Robert Marin

        You again Donald. Go someplace else to rant than being here, you troll

      • I don’t understand why you even bothered to sign up for this site, you are clearly no advocate of Nintendo

        • ¬†Where is it written that I have to advocate for Nintendo?¬† They don’t pay ME.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Good thing, cause they can use better employees if so. You don’t have to be paid to make positive comments, you do it for the trolling.

          • ¬†No, I do it for the truth.¬† As they say, some people can’t handle the truth!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I handle it just fine. You don’t see me raging once nor in caps. The truth is what you wanna believe is in your mind. You said it yourself, people don’t think the same as others. So again, you’re not right in everyones mind. We are all different. Respect what people believe. You can be truthful or have an opinion, but going to peoples comments just because they either don’t agree with you or enjoy what you call “baby games” is quite dumb.

            You know you’re guilty of it so let’s be real here. Not everyone will agree with you or see what you feel is true as a fact. That’s a fact of life.

          • ¬†I never wrote that people cannot play baby games, I just wrote that Nintendo has a baby game machine imagine which they promised to change with the Wii U and all we get is more of them.¬† I like the Legos games!

          • brian murphy

            your just pissed cause you got a crappy pc and your mom wont buy you a wii U

          • ScrewAttack

            Boy Donaald, you sure are a faggot. Guess that’s what happens when your mommy refuses to hug you.

          • ¬†Careful, you might offend some of your family members and people on here.¬† I don’t get emotional about games buddy.¬† I guess when you are paid, you say anything.

          • ScrewAttack

            lol! You’re a terrible troll, I give your attempt a 1. Thanks for trying, better luck next time.¬†

      • Laud

        Ignore Donald, he’s just mad because Nintendo knows how to do DLC.

        All that content in just ONE DLC? ftw.

        • Daniel Gonzalez


      • Mr. Nick

        I’d buy a game of Luigi making pizza. It could be called “Chef Luigi”

      • uPadWatcher

        Donny… do not post it here or any topic at Wii U Daily and instead go dwell in your grandmother’s basement.

      • Silent

        If they announced a game about killing you, i would TOTALLY BUY IT.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Probably the best idea yet.

      • Alex Damman

        if it had an actual good gameplay concept and mechanics behind it, i’d totally buy a game of luigi making pizza. it could turn into a whole new mario spinoff series, where you manage a restaurant or chain of restaurants in the mushroom kingdom. you could even be able to cook some of the many dishes from the paper mario series.

      • SoulSilverZero

        You enjoying your locked on disc DLC on SFxT?

      • DragonSilths

        There is a Pizza making mini game on Mario Party 8 or 9…I forget which. Pretty challenging actually.

      • Fred

        Nintendo is the real deal I love playing their games

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        If it’s corny to you, then don’t play? At least they don’t put stuff on the disc and pass it off as DLC. Stuff that you see on 360 and ps3. Nintendo made a good decision. You just normally hate cause it’s Nintendo, and not your precious 360. You make that clear.

      • ¬†Everything can be broken down and laughed at. EVEN THE GREATEST Games. Donaald does express his “thought provoking” opinions… It is up to us to choose how to respond.¬†

        Let’s Breakdown Donaalds thread: (How I would have responded, my “opinion”)

        Donaalds:”If they announced a pizza game, you would call it ‘awesome’!”-¬†
        Me: This sentence alone is awesome! You are telling me you have great space and time continuum skills. You are literally telling me what I would call something in a hypothetical situation. ¬†I do love Pizza, so if they made a RIDICULOUSLY fun game about it and I got excited then maybe I really would call it ‘awesome’? ¬†

        Donaalds: “You know this shit is corny.”
        Me: I wasn’t aware of you posses mind reading skills too! ¬†I wouldn’t suggest they’d be used on your next resume. ¬†What I know is: I like Luigi and Nintendo is bringing some new additions involving him. I can see how this might offend you. Does it hurt when others have a different point of view? People responding negatively (although strongly opposed) are now offended that you don’t think like them. It must feel good knowing there are other ignorant people like yourself.

        Donaalds: “You also know with more stuff like this, Nintendo cannot compete with the real deal.”
        Me: Again with the “you know”.. how do you know what I know?Be careful with these “you knows” because it kills your credibility. ¬†“More Stuff like this‚Ķ” Can you clarify? If Nintendo continues to make downloadable content in general? ¬†Luigi a part of downloadable content? Pleasing their fan base? ¬†I’m confused with how adding content is hurting nintendo. Now lastly the “real deal”‚Ķ What is that? As far as I was aware I’m living in the real deal called life and in my life Nintendo is doing a great job in helping me enjoy my “real deal” even more. Thanks for your opinion can’t wait for more!¬†

  • AlexWilgus

    I’m assuming this will still support be multiplayer?

  • I WAS NOT READY!!!!!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaauuurhrhrrhrhrhggghurrhurrhurrhurrhurrhurrhurr YEAR OF THE NINTENDO Im selling my kids to afford all this goodness.

  • Sydney Ultrasyd

  • DemonRoach

    • Lazara the Last

      New levels, and you want ’em for free? Why don’t you go down to the¬†coffee¬†shop and ask them to give you their new coffees for free too, because you bought something there before ^^

      • Tim van Broekhoven

  • Jeffery02

  • guest

  • Andrew W Garttmeyer

  • Adam Fox

    WHOO!! ¬†I am gonna be getting this for sure! ¬†Nintendo sure knows how to make DLC….not only do you get a new character but the game levels change too! ¬†We can’t say that about other games that have DLC…..at least this is REAL DLC and not “Disk Locked Content” crap! ¬†Gotta hand it to Nintendo to not be doing that garbage!

  • Tim van Broekhoven
