Sorry, Miyamoto. You can't just end the Year of Luigi

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 Miiverse announcemen...   read

Those Club Nintendo Luigi statues are all gone

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 releases. Having said ...   read

Nintendo may have gone too far with this one

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? Who knows. But...   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...   read

I thought this was a joke. It's not a joke. Campbell's has partnered with Nintendo to release Mario-branded SpaghettiOs. Why, yes, it is the year 2013. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, you couldn't toss a penny down a supermarket aisle w...   read

Behold the glory of the physical version of Super Luigi U

I'm a big fan of the middle-aged Japanese Luigi
