This should have been the official Mario Kart 8 trailer

Just recently we showed you the death glare of Luigi -- the piercing eyes of someone you do not want to mess with if you value your life (and possibly your soul). But thanks to YouTube user KagatoTheFinalBoss, we now have a defin...

Death glare: Luigi is not a man you want to mess with

This isn't the gaze of a competitor hell-bent on getting a checkered flag. This is a stare of pure contempt, a glare from a man that will crush anything in his way for no reason at all. Watch out for Luigi. Decades of playing second fiddle...

The Year of Luigi has ended

"'The Year of Luigi' ended on March 18, 2014. Thank you for your support!" That's what Nintendo says, anyway. Its celebration of our favorite high-jumping plumber has come to a close. There's even a commemorative website with lovely message...

 
Year of Luigi won't end
This is not a plea. Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto took to the Miiverse to declare an end to the Year of Luigi: March 18. The Year of Luigi Miiverse sections will close on that date. Miyamoto also asked for comments on the Miive...   read

Those Club Nintendo Luigi statues are all gone

In case you've been living under a rock for the past year, Nintendo has been running a fun promotion throughout 2013: the Year of Luigi. The goal is simple -- to celebrate the part of the Mario duo that is often describe...   read

Dr. Luigi
Dr. Luigi is out today, and it not only signals the end of 2013, but the end of the first Year of Luigi as well. While most of it is pretty straightforward for Dr. Mario fans (the game even has a classic Dr. Mario mode), there are some new concepts that might make things a bit tricky. Here are a few basic tips to help you get started.   read

Review: Dr. Luigi

Dr. Mario is the bane of my puzzle gaming career. I loved it ever since I picked it up for the first time in 1990, but I've never really reached the point where I can say that I mastered it, unlike many other Nintendo release...   read

Hey gang! Sorry I wasn't around on Tuesday, but there wasn't a whole lot of news -- so here's a rundown of today's big news, including yesterday's big ol' Nintendo Direct, that new realistic medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and the Xbox One's upcoming documentary series on the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Atari 2600 game. No, seriously.   read

RIP Luigi
In this, our Year of Luigi, 2013, a terrible thing has happened. Somehow, this one minigame in NES Remix seems to have slipped by Iwata. Is it a conspiracy from Reggie to axe the extended 2014 Year of Luigi celebration?...   read

Luigi 2DS spotted! It looks better than the Luigi 3DS

Kotaku received some pictures of what appears to be a Luigi-themed 2DS. I want it. It's a simple white with green trimmings (buttons and so on) and a Luigi etched into the back. It's a lot cleaner than the cool, but busy Luigi 3DS. I defini...

Behold the glory of the physical version of Super Luigi U
