New Super Mario Bros U getting large-scale Luigi DLC

Nintendo will be releasing "New Super Luigi U" DLC for New Super Mario Bros U later this year, which changes all the stages.

Tying in to what Nintendo is cheekily referring to as "The Year of Luigi," the company announced a new large-scale piece of downloadable content for New Super Mario Bros U. The "New Super Luigi U" DLC puts Mario's brother in the starring role.

It's a large piece of content for its scope, though, which changes every stage in the game and essentially makes a new campaign for Luigi. As Nintendo points out, that means all of the game's 80+ stages will be altered. "Players can freely change between the New Super Luigi U and New Super Mario Bros. U stages," Nintendo adds. The DLC will be available on the eShop some time later this year.

      have they announced a Mario Galaxy for the Wii U?

      Any other Mario titles in the works?

        All they said thus far was that the guys who made the Galaxy games and 3D Land are working on a new 3D Mario title for the Wii U and it will be fully playable at E3.

      Did they include the "save after any level" DLC?

        You get that once you beat the game automatically. You don't even have to beat the star worlds.

        you can quick save any time you want to quit. there is no need to save after every level if you are going to keep playing unless you are scumsaving to maintain a steady supply of lives.

          To be fair, I don't understand why they don't just let you save after every level regularly, or hell, even auto-save after every level automatically. The quick-save option forcing you to quit is a real head scratcher too.

      Mario Bros. U was a lot of fun. Looking forward to more.
