Luigi playable in Super Mario 3D Land

Mario's tall, cowardly brother will be playable in Super Mario 3D Land, as revealed by a lengthy new gameplay video. Art director Kenta Motokura revealed that Luigi will be accessible in special stages, which open after beating world 8-4 with Mario. As in previous games, Luigi will be a bit lighter on his toes than Mario.

The trailer (via Siliconera) shows off a brief snippet of Luigi in its eight minutes of gameplay. You can also check out a few suits in action, new power blocks, and even enemies sporting a Tanooki tail. Check it out below.
