New details about New Super Luigi U
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed a few new details about the New Super Luigi U DLC which is coming to the hit launch title New Super Mario Bros. U. The world map will retain the same design, but all 82 stages have been redesigned with Luigi's abilities in mind. The green-clad brother jumps higher than Mario, but it takes him slightly longer to slow down after running, which will make it more challenging than the normal game. The impromptu "hard mode" will also give players just 100 seconds at the start of many stages, which will make things seem all the more frantic. Iwata says that the stages are meant to encourage multiple playthroughs.
From the sound of things, hardcore Mario fans should have plenty to keep them satisfied for months, if not years, to come.
