Year Of Luigi: Career Timelime

The Year of Luigi is upon us, so what would be more fitting than a timeline of his greatest accomplishments?  Although this info-graphic is not all inclusive (Mario is Missing is…uhm…missing, as well as other various sports themed games he has been in) it is still a pretty cool way of showing some love to Luigi. For most of his life, he has been best known for being “player 2R...

Miyamoto Makes His Mii Verse Debut!

Everybody loves Miyamoto, I mean I have never spoken to someone that dislikes him.  So, his absence from the Mii Verse was really quite sad. Last week, the father of Mario and Link (You didn’t know that Luigi and link were the same?  I mean, they both wear green hats and shirts, Sure their hair is different, and the noses aren’t the same, but the space time continuum can wreak havoc on...

Miyamoto Interviewed By Polygon

Today Polygon’s interview with the great Shirgeru Miyamoto went up. Although obviously on a tight PR leash, the interview makes an interesting watch or read nonetheless. Miyamoto goes over what he wants to be achieved by the imminent Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and why Nintendo have decided 2013 should be the ‘Year of Luigi’. Amongst the other topics discussed are Nintendo&...

New Super Mario Bros. 2 Gameplay From Japan

Japan has released two commercials that show a bit more of the game play, including a Giant Boo, a possible Koopalings chase, giant rocks falling under wat...

Nintendo Says Super Mario Bros. U is What the Fans Want

Over the years, Nintendo has allowed Mario to evolve with the times yet still allow him to retain his original demeanor.  From his 8 bit humble beginnings, to his career in the racing circuit, Mario has transitioned nicely to the new age of gaming.  For the fans, he taught us to never give up, even if the Princess is in another Castle.  Rarely are we let down by the release of a new installment in...

Nintendo trademarks Luigi’s Mansion Again! Dooo do do dooo~ Do-dooo do dooooo~??

Nintendo has recently renewed/set up a new trademark for Luigi’s Mansion. While I am pretty sure Nintendo is just making sure they still hold the rights for their titles… I think it would be nice if we happened to see a New Play Control remake of the original Gamecube title. Yet, my heart tells me not to get my hopes up. Would you like to see a remake or new play control style Luigi...
