New Super Luigi U release date, standalone ver. revealed

Also, PLAY AS NABBIT!

Luigi is rockin’ it hardcore! The upcoming New Super Mario Bros. U expansion, New Super Luigi U, is ready to drop on eShop on June 20 for $19.99. Not only that, there will be a special standalone disc, which doesn’t require you to own the original, coming August 25 for $29.99.

We weren’t sure in the past if there would be multiplayer, but Iwata has confirmed that it’s present in full force. You can play as Luigi, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, or… NABBIT! Yes, the purple thief that you had to chase down in certain levels! Nabbit can’t power up using items, but he’ll be completely invulnerable. What a little badass!

I’m excited! You excited? I’m super excited!
