Shigeru Miyamoto: The Year Of Luigi Just Started


If you’ve played Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, you’ll receive a special note from the game’s producer, Shigeru Miyamoto. The note is sent via the Swapnote application on Nintendo 3DS. In the Note, Miyamoto tells fans that the “Year of Luigi” has only begun, and that he’s sure Luigi appreciates his fans’ support. After you read the special note, you’ll receive a new Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon-themed stationery, which you can then use to write your own notes.

… It’s just me, Shigeru Miyamoto!

How do you like Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon?

I hope you are not too scared like him (Luigi). Year of Luigi just started.

I’m sure he appreciates your support!!

-Shigeru Miyamoto, via Swapnote


  1. Turns out the new 3D Mario Game is actually Super Luigi Galaxy and the Mario Kart is actually Luigi Kart Wii U

    1. Wouldn’t it be crazy if Luigi got his own 3D game for the Wii U!!!? :O Something OTHER than Luigi’s Mansion! 💋

      1. It would be but the mario name is too popular. I think the title should have the super mario bros nsme in it.

  2. I should get this game soon :c Missing all the awesomeness it seems, haha.
    I have the stationary though, fun to have kind “swapnote” *cough*Nintendo letter box*cough* friends :3

  3. Is this the year Luigi puts down the arch-villian Waluigi?
    If they’re gonna give Luigi the spotlight, maybe for once Waluigi
    can get a chance to justify his existence. If he were the main Villian
    for once, that would make things interesting.

    1. Me. The Mario & Luigi series is probably my second favorite RPG series, right behind Pokemon. Loved all three, even PiT being the weakest was still really good.

      1. I beg to differ, it was better than Bowser’s Inside Story, in terms of memorable scenes. (: Superstar Saga was the best.

    2. Me. I love the series so much, and the fact that you can summon tons of Luigis to attack enemies or help you is awesome.

  4. Regarding this letter from Mr. Miyamoto. If I purchase and start playing it today or later, will I then recive this mail? Or is there not a ghost of a chanse?

  5. I saw “…It’s just me, Shigeru Miyamoto!” and thought, “Uh, no, it’s just me, Gabe Newell.”

  6. i wonder if ms and sony could do a full year themed around a single character without it being the same game 5 times like a fps[halo] or a 3rd person hack and slash[god or war]

  7. They need to make the game where we actually get to see Luigi doing all the stuff he apparently did in Thousand-Year Door.
