Nintendo declared 2013 as The Year of Luigi this morning during its Nintendo Direct broadcast. Kicking off the celebration will be the release of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for the Nintendo 3DS in March.
The UK Nintendo Direct just wrapped up and Nintendo UK has been busy adding all kinds of videos to its YouTube channel. Most are the same from what we got in the U.S. this morning, but one unique addition is that Nintendo UK has a new Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon trailer. You might have already seen it if you watched the entirety of this morning’s Nintendo Direct. For the rest of us, it provides an in-depth look at the features being added to the game from the game’s producer – Shigeru Miyamoto.
Joining Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Nintendo will also be releasing Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Mario Golf World Tour and Super Luigi U this year to celebrate The Year of Luigi. More on that here.
