Luigi Speaks Out about Retail Version of New Super Luigi U for Wii U, in Stores on Aug. 25

Have you been waiting for the disc release of New Super Luigi U instead of purchasing the DLC from the Wii U eShop? Well, August 25 is the day you need to mark on your calendar. The retail version of the game will feature all 82 levels of the digital version for a price of $29.99. However, if you already own New Super Mario Bros. U, and want to download a copy of New Super Luigi U, it is only $19.99 on the eShop.

In connection with the retail release, Luigi decided to share something himself with you, the fans. So, have a listen!




Nintendo News: Retail Version of New Super Luigi U for Wii U Jumps into Stores on Aug. 25

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The Year of Luigi is going strong. So far, Luigi has explored multiple haunted mansions in Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for Nintendo 3DS, partnered up with his brother in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, also for Nintendo 3DS, and taken the Wii U downloadable content world by storm in New Super Luigi U. On Aug. 25, New Super Luigi U will be available as a packaged-disc version for Wii U that will be sold in retail stores. The game joins the downloadable version available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

The retail version of New Super Luigi U comes in a unique green case that will look excellent on any game shelf. Fans that purchase the retail version of New Super Luigi U for a suggested retail price of $29.99 do not need to own a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U to play. For Wii U users who already own a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U is still available as a download in the Nintendo eShop for $19.99.

New Super Luigi U is the first platforming adventure starring Luigi as the main playable character. With more than 80 revamped stages, Luigi’s trademark high jump and the addition of playable character Nabbit, New Super Luigi U takes the Year of Luigi to a whole new level – 82 of them, in fact.

But don’t take our word for it: We have attached an audio recording from Luigi himself to explain more about his fun and challenging game. He can barely contain his excitement.
