New Super Luigi U

Behold the glory of the physical version of Super Luigi U

1:00 PM on 08.25.2013 // Chris Carter

As you have have heard, Nintendo debuted one of their first major DLC campaigns on the Wii U in June in the form of New Super Luigi U, but that version was digital-only, and it required a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U. Well, today in North America (or July in all other regions) a physical edition has launched in all its green glory -- and it doesn't require the original game to run.

Coming in at $29.99, the physical version is contained in rather fitting green case with the "Year of Luigi" emblem, complete with its own unique disc art modeled after New Super Mario Bros. U. Just like the digital copy it comes with its own campaign playable by Luigi, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, and the invincible Nabbit. From what I can tell it hasn't added any extras -- so all you're getting is the remixed story mode and levels.

As an side, I was able to register the physical edition of the game at Club Nintendo in addition to the digital version, which I already had on my account -- the physical copy nets you 40 Coins. The game itself is an excellent collector's item for any Mario fan, and it'll go very nicely with my work in progress Mario collection.

Thanks for that Mother 4 article yesterday I've been listening to nothing but GBA-era soundtracks, truly my golden years of gaming.

Hoping more character customization options come of the next Smash-centric Nintendo Direct. Playing as Wrong-Hair, Wrong-Face Robin feels weird. Female Robin Amiibo, too. And let 3DS users download the whole OST. My wishes are reasonable, I think.

Threshold's last album, For the Journey is so goddamn solid. Progressive metal at it's finest.

If you're looking for some epic metal you should most certainly look to power metal. If there was truly a genre to describe as epic, it's that one. Theatre of Tragedy is oldschool, if you want something similar look into Tristania.

Community Question: With Hideki Kamiya asking fans which Capcom franchise that he created they would like to see him make a sequel to, what is another series you would like to see its original creator return to and take over the reins?

Mom tells me not to ask for nothing for Christmas again. Etrian Odyssey 4, Untold 1, and Etrian Mystery Dungeon it is then. My wife and I are already antisocial as is, I think this may be the final step to becoming a full blown hermit.

Hm...One of my blog posts disappeared. It says (HIDDEN) in the blog manager, but I can't seem to get it live. What's up?

This is gothic metal and I don't want to know what she's singing because it's epic AF. Yep, I'm ignoring the lyrics altogether. Not gonna peek at all. [youtube][/youtube]

Started a new game in Persona 4 Golden after finishing Dancing All Night(which probably was inevitable) and man, that game really needs a "Skip to actual gameplay" function.
