To continue promoting the Year of Luigi this year, Nintendo has launched not only one, but three communities to support the brother-in-green on Miiverse.

Wii U users can discuss Luigi or post doodles in his honour through the official Year of Luigi community, a dedicated discussion thread for upcoming 3DS title Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and the Year of Luigi Developer's Room.

Shigeru Miyamoto, Takashi Tezuka, and Yoshihito Ikebata have left messages on the Miiverse communities, each encouraging users to post about Luigi:

Shigeru Miyamoto - It’s been a whole 30 years since Luigi’s debut in Mario Bros.! Thanks to Luigi’s fans within Nintendo and all over the world, we have created many games starring Luigi. I hereby declare 2013 to be the Year of Luigi!

Takashi Tezuka - We have prepared a place where everyone can talk about Luigi. Are you a fan of Luigi? Is there something you especially love about him? Post it all here! Let’s see if we can reach a million visitor! (sic)

Yoshihito Ikebata - I’m Ikebata of Nintendo, supervisor of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon / Luigi’s Mansion 2. We have created a community for the new Luigi’s Mansion title, which kicks off the Year of Luigi. Please feel free to post about the game in this community!

After scrolling through some of the comments left in the thread, there are quite a few people thinking of ways to pay their respect for Luigi - with one person saying he's going to beat Super Mario 3D Land as the man himself.

Have you been posting on the new communities? Let us know in the comment section below.
