Game play overview and features from Nintendo for New Super Luigi U

The setting for the game is much like the original NSMB U, though this time the task of rescuing the Princess falls onto Luigi's shoulders, as Mario is nowhere in sight (if you look carefully however you can see Mario's cap on a table at Peach's castle - bad timing on the bathroom visit Mario).

Playable characters include Luigi as the primary protagonist, Yellow and Blue Toads and the new edition of Nabbit; The rabbit who steals from the Toad Houses in New Super Mario Bros U - this character however can only be played in the multiplayer version of the game.

The game will feature 82 levels which we expect will be modified renditions of their New Super Mario Bros U predecessors and one of the main differences to gameplay will be the physics of Luigi as a character compared to Mario. Luigi as a character can jump higher than Mario, and run faster - but he is a bit less co ordinated, and the combination of the quicker speed, higher jump coupled with the setbacks of longer stopping distance and worse co ordination could end in disaster for Mario's clumsier brother.
