It may have slipped off some radars, but the substantial New Super Luigi U release arrives as DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U in next week's Nintendo Download update. The initial download release will arrive alongside an update for the Mario retail title, with the content then purchased through the game; a standalone boxed version will then arrive at a higher price — $29.99 in the U.S. — on 26th July in Europe and 25th August in North America.
Pleasingly, the reduced DLC price — $19.99 / £19.99 — should be good value with a full complement of 82 levels. While they'll perhaps be blasted through quicker than those in the original game, there should still be plenty of hours of gameplay for the cost, whether in single or multiplayer.
The latest trailer, released at the start of E3, is certainly worth a watch to see Luigi busting out the flutter jump at every opportunity, while it also shows off the rather useful Nabbit playable character; it's practically indestructible and ideal for less experienced players.
Check it out below; it's more 2D platforming and Luigi's the star, so odds are good that this may be worth picking up.
