New Super Luigi U
New Super Luigi U, a massive add-on for New Super Mario Bros. U and also available separately as a packaged version at retail, is a platforming game featuring Luigi. All 82 courses from New Super Mario Bros. U have been retooled with new challenging designs and features for this adventure! Luigi can jump higher than Mario, but finds it a lot harder to stop moving once he gets going, so playing as him will be a whole new experience! In multiplayer mode, you can also take control of the thieving Nabbit from the original game! He doesn’t take any damage from enemies, so he’s well-suited for less experienced players.
