Special offers from Nintendo to celebrate the Year of Luigi drawing to a close

Like myself, many people thought the Year of Luigi was over on 31st December 2013; but we have since been corrected - The Year of Luigi will end officially on March the 18th 2014, Shigeru Miyamoto last week announced in an official statement.


This means the year of Luigi ran for a total of 397 days, quite a bit longer than a conventional year, but thats just how the Big L rolls.

Personally I don't think these offers are anything to fall off your chair about, but if you were going to buy one of those games anyway saving a bit certainly can't hurt.


Further statement from Shigeru Miyamoto ref the year of Luigi are below, quoted from Miiverse


Almost a year has passed since I announced the Year of Luigi, marking the 30th anniversary of Luigi's debut. Thanks to everyone's kind support, we were able to release many Luigi games over the course of the year. I hope everyone continues to cheer for the green brother!

However, all good things must come to an end, and the Year of Luigi will conclude on March 18.

From this date on, the Year of Luigi Community and its Developers' Room will sadly no longer accept new posts or comments. (The exact date and time is listed in each community's description.) That means there's one more month to go. I hope everyone continues to share their thoughts on Luigi with people from around the world!

By the way... As a means of bringing closure to the Year of Luigi, I would like to ask you to leave a comment for Luigi in this post. (Please post only one comment per person.)
