This morning, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata sported a rather fetching Luigi hat and announced 2013 as the year of Luigi. He said it’s about time the character got his due after being a supporting character for so long. Of course, seeing is believing, and now you too can watch Iwata celebrate the life of Luigi with his sweet hat.

Besides Luigi, this morning’s Nintendo Direct also included new details on Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC, new eShop titles, and LEGO City Undercover. The video also featured the first look at Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, a 3DS remake of 2010’s Donkey Kong Country Returns on the Wii.

For some extra fun, try to count all the times Luigi shows up in the background during this Nintendo Direct.

    I love the Donkey Kong Country series; I think they were my favourite games on the SNES. I played them to the absolute death! The Wii version is great, too, so here’s hoping the 3D take is up to scratch.

    As for Luigi, Nintendo’s finest moments have all been with Mario. I’ll hold my breath on what they’re going to do with him on the Wii U.
