Luigi Won’t Get His Own Storyline In Super Luigi U DLC


Miyamoto has revealed that everyone’s favourite sidekick, Luigi, won’t be getting his own storyline in the forthcoming Super Luigi U downloadable content for New Super Mario Bros U. Miyamoto says that he won’t have his own story, but the levels have been redesigned specifically for him. Miyamoto was also asked whether or not Mario will feature in the DLC, to which he replied “I can’t say yet”.

In “Super Luigi U,” does Luigi have his own storyline, or does he just have the levels available to him?

Miyamoto: He doesn’t get his own story, but all of the levels have been redesigned for Luigi, so it should be a pretty good role for him.

Multiplayer: Does Mario make an appearance at all?

Miyamoto: I can’t say yet.

There are some people that say that they want Mario to appear, but Mr. Tezuka is saying that he’s not going to let Mario into this game.

Thanks, Ahmad

  1. Like it matters. What do you think the storyline would have been? The same, generic, old Mario plot we’ve gotten again and again and again.

    1. Could have been cool like maybe Luigi had to track down and save Princess DAISY from King Boo’s kidnapping. Along the way he fights littler Boos in castles. The final boss fight could be King Boo in his Mecha Bowser Suit!

  2. I think it was pretty obvious that the “Super Luigi U” was going to be 80 or so challenge speed/skill stage and nothing more.

    1. I thought Miyamoto said “all of the levels have been redesigned for him” meant that ALL the levels in NSMBU will be redesigned for Luigi. Meaning that he will get as many levels as the game itself has.

      1. Well that will mean there are what? 94 levels? it must bee, it´s the number that appear in my save file next to my 5 shiny golden star.

  3. Nintendo Commander

    As if anyone cares about story in this game?…

    It barely has a story and people play it because it’s fun…

    1. It needs a story, Crap Commander. A lack of story will always be the reason why Nintendo games suck so much, virgin.

      1. If you can think of a story for a new super mario bros game, then go ahead. I honestly cannot think of anything that would even do well. Some games just don’t or really can’t have storylines. NSMB is more a party game anyway. (in my opinion)

        1. No dude he’s right. Clearly no one likes Nintendo games like Zelda for example because it obviously does not have a story.

            1. Don’t forget Kid Icarus, and Fire Emblem. I can’t recall a single line of dialogue from either of those.

      2. Nintendo Commander

        I have to thank you though CPU Soldier Bill…

        On one hand you think PC gaming or the rest of the more powerful systems than the Wii U are far better and will destroy it because it’s unmanly…

        On the other hand, you still compare the so called weaker unmanly Nintendo system and its games to your superior ones and in doing so you are automatically making Wii U the biggest threat to all 3 areas…

        And if I want a story, I’ll watch a movie, read a book or even invent my own…

        So have fun with your so called manly stories which are really a D-movie hollywood level type of stories which do nothing to gaming other than making you even more of a retard and non creative…

      3. A lot of things don’t have stories and are considered works of art. Abstract paintings, Poetry, etc. Even award winning videogames don’t necissarily “need” a story. Look at the game “Journey”. It was highly praised, but also notably lacking an intricate story.

  4. Typical Nintendo. They have no idea how to write a story for a video game, so they use the stock “rescue the princess” or none at all. So pathetic. HAHAHAHA

    1. Fuck off troll. Mario has never been about story. A friend of mine who is a total PS4 fanboy says he doesn’t give a shit about story in any game on any system. He sits down and plays it and zones out then credits roll and he gets up and goes. Point is Story isn’t an OMG mandatory thing in every game.

      1. I disagree. Some mario games are all about story, like Mario RPG, or the first couple paper mario games, as well as the mario + luigi games. But this is not one of those games, it’s about sitting down playing then moving on. Just like you said.

    2. Bill let’s go play COD, Halo and battlefield with differing story and game mechanics every iteration. I hear Gears of war and Kinectimals 2 on the xbox720 shall have voice co-op for us basement dwellers. While the nintendo nation plays monster hunter 3 Ultimate for 100s of hours, you and I can play Crysis 3 for five hour spurts and enjoy the eye candy graphics. Can’t wait for the ‘Last of us.’ Those graphics look nice movie and clicking in one game now that’s innovation. Not that Zelda Skyward sword with it’s show off precise control and great story. These nintendo chaps know not gaming COD mindless violence all the way.

    3. People play videogames for completely different things. If you yourself are worried about the “story” so much then go read a book.

    1. TatangaIt´s Tatanga, and i was hoping he will make a comeback as a villian, but if Wart does not, probably Tatanga will not.

  5. Oh so its just like every Mario game then *trollface*
    But seriously, not that it matters that they dont, and the RPG/Paper games have great stories (besides Sticker Star)

    1. Well I don’t think there is a story change, because it is just downloadable content with level changesin NSMBU for Luigi. It isn’t like you are buying a brand new game.

  6. Well if luigi plays like mario 2 with higher jumps and less traction from galaxy and 3d land itll be good to have different kind of levels based on his gameplay. I just doubt itll be 1 player

  7. Nintendo Commander

    Personally, Paper Mario 2 TTYD has the best story of any Mario game to date…

    Possibly SMS comes in second place…

                  1. I’m planning a trip to Malaysia and I’m not giving you my PSN username because you’ll probably spam/stalk me.

                    1. Wow, talk about a stalker. Also, I’ve given out my username on this site before. You lose buddy :D I gave it to Kairi. I use to go by the account on this site called Smitty as well :D

                    2. Well if you are me, you should be able to tell me what volunteer organisation I am in and what my rank is. Unless you aren’t me?

                    1. Nope. considering the “penis” profile has already been taken by a hacker, the account has lost all credibility. You’re probably the same loser who stole Neutrons as well.

      1. Wow! I actually agree with you Jelly Bean. The thousand year door paper Mario is LEGEND………..wait for it…….ARY.

    1. Sunshine comes second? Really? :S

      Id say Super Paper Mario has the best story, so many feels.
      Then it would either be Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (a game that actually had a genuine twist), or TTYD.

  8. i have 2 ideas for the story where bowser and wart team up to kidnap mario and peach or that king boo kidnaps daisy and luigi must rescue her

  9. I hope Mario wont make an appearance in the Luigi U game, hmm how many times has Luigi gotten the shaft in a Mario game? Nintendo needs to make a Luigi game with his own story, and not having to save Mario’s tail…again. And start using another underused character that actually has ties to Luigi, “Daisy”.

  10. Considering the game’s quite literally a level pack (and downloadable content to boot), I see no real problem with this. I mean, this is quite literally one of the biggest examples of downloadable content in gaming (redoing every level in the game) and likely to be sold for a much lower price, so not having a new storyline isn’t exactly a big deal.

  11. Story and gameplay are both important sometimes. I’m pretty sure this game as Mario had people connect to the story, like the wondering of Peach’s castle, etc.. That’s all based on the story and what made it fun for some. It didn’t have lot’s of cutscenes, and dialogue, but the story did effect one large thing in the designing, the whole purpose of going to Peach’s Castle. For a game like this, I think at least a simple story like that is great (Not saying they should simple the story on the RPGs though).

    So yeah Story can work out and games and what made a lot of games fun. It’s bull crap to pretend story has no reason for certain games. Gameplay and Story can be both equality great.
    It’s what made Mario RPGs so great and loved, etc.

    As for this, I wonder if the story will be like Mario if he doesn’t get his own story? Or just have no ending bowser thing?

    The only thing I am worried though is that they are not going to change the world map at all and make all the levels only speed runs. :/ Since I was wanting to explore some levels without being rushed.

    Just wanted to mention keep up the good work!
    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser
    compatibility problems? A number of my blog audience have complained about my blog not
    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

    Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I’m experiencing some minor security issues with my
    latest website and I would like to find something more secure.

    Do you have any solutions?
    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my users would truly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Many thanks!

    utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!
    Wonderful website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other experienced people that

    please let me know. Cheers!
    Hi there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a
    quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading your articles.

    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that
    go over the same subjects? Thank you so much!
    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; we have created some nice practices and we are
    looking to trade methods with other folks, why not shoot
    me an e-mail if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your blog. You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some articles for
    your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Please blast me an email if interested. Thanks!
    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.

    However just imagine if you added some great images or video
    clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
    blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Great blog!
    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog
    soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
    in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos
    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of
    completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

    Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would love to have you
    share some stories/information. I know my readers would enjoy
    your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.
    Hey there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information.
    I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and brilliant style and design.
    Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own
    site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .
    . Any suggestions? Thank you!
    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious
    about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content
    into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.
    I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

    this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored at work so I
    decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast
    your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me
    an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog
    by the way!
    Right now it sounds like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
    Fantastic post however , I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit
    further. Appreciate it!
    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thank you!
    Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group
    of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us valuable information to work on.
    You have done a wonderful job!
    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s
    driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

    This design is steller! You most certainly
    know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very
    easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
    to create your theme? Outstanding work!
    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s
    new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back
    Hello! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group?
    There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Many thanks
    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a
    while but I never seem to get there! Many
    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about
    setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you
    Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone
    4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll
    go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later.

    All the best
    I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.

    Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone
    to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. thank you
    Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on
    a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design.
    Great choice of colors!
    Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images
    aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I
    think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
    Hi there are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting
    a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of
    hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m
    undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to
    new updates.
    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.

    Any tips?
    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine
    Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Kudos!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100%
    sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images
    on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem
    still exists.
    Hey there! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the great work!
    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say great blog!

  17. Your own posting, “Luigi Wont Get His Own Storyline In Super Luigi U DLC | My
    Nintendo News” was indeed well worth commenting down here in the
    comment section! Merely wished to admit u did a very good work.
    Regards -Angelika

  18. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any
    tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I
    never seem to get there! Thanks
