New Super Luigi U warps onto retail shelves

The retail boxed edition of the Luigi-centric New Super Mario Bros U spinoff is headed to stores this Sunday.

With the downloadable version available on the Wii U’s eShop for a while already, you might have scratched that Luigi itch and picked up New Super Luigi U for yourself by now. Just in case you haven’t though, or in case you’re a Super Mario Super-Fan and just flat out need a boxed copy in your collection, the very green boxed edition of New Super Luigi U is available in stores as of this coming Sunday, August 25th.

Believe it or not, New Super Luigi U is the first solo game ever for the other Mario brother. For a first effort, it’s a pretty impressive game with over 80 stages “revamped” from New Super Mario Bros U and a whole mess of new levels to play around in too.

New Super Luigi U also adds in a new playable character (since Mario isn’t exactly ‘welcome’ in his Bro’s game) in the form of the Nabbit. The chunky little thief rounds out a four, or five if you use a GamePad, player experience.

The Year of Luigi rolls on as New Super Luigi U will be available this Sunday the 25th for the Nintendo Wii U at retail stores everywhere.

    So are you going to get it Jason? I don’t think I will considering I already downloaded it, but it’s quite tempting. That box is calling to me.

  2. Definitely. I skipped the digital release because I wanted the box on my Nintendo shelf 😉
