Luigi finally gets his own game outside of a haunted mansion. I love the way this game looks, and the beautiful box art. The game will be more challenging then Super Mario Bros U is. The game is only $30, which isn't bad at all. The box art is below.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gameonthego Super Challenging Luigi U
Yes, this game is challenging but not in an impossible way and I knew what I was in for by reading the details before purchasing. The levels are timed to keep you moving so you will be required to strategize and keep your eyes peeled for the secrets. There are times I thought I would never be able to complete certain levels but found extra lives to keep me going. If you love challenging platform style games, you owe it to yourself to pick this up before it's gone. you will be screaming in torture and blissfully satisfied at the same time. Thank you Nintendo, it is a wonderful treasure.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Gurlukovich A great year for the lean, mean, green machine.
Luigi has always been my favorite character in video games. There's no doubt about that. Ever since I was little, I've played as him as I possibly could in every Mario game he was in. Always, overshadowed by his brother, I empathized with Luigi. However, before the violins start playing, let's get on a lighter note. Playing off of last year's New Super Mario Bros. U's gameplay and levels, New Super Luigi U takes the that game's formula, gets rid of Mario, adds immense amounts of difficulty, and puts you in the overalls of Luigi. Based on gameplay videos I've seen, it plays like the Mario platforming we've come to love and expect. As much as I wish there were more original levels in the game, I will appear at my closest Game Stop on its release day. Color me green. Thank you, Nintendo, for allowing Luigi to shine this year.

New Super Luigi U will be a mostly new game from New Super Mario Bros U. Everything but the world map, bosses, and power ups will change. The levels are all new and more difficult than Mario Bros U. This game will almost be like a challenge mode for New Super Mario Bros U with the harder levels and less time you have to beat the levels. You will be able to play as Luigi, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, and for the first time ever, Nabbit, who will be invincible but won't be able to collect power ups. Overall New Super Luigi U looks to be a great game, and for only $30 this game is a great deal for everyone.
Rated 1 out of 10 by darkdutchess04 Seriously Disappointed
I bought this game for my 6 year old daughter and tried to play with her. After about 30 minutes of screaming it ended with me throwing a controller at the wall. This game is horrible! You only get 100 seconds to play and the worlds are insanely hard. It's like they tried to pack all of a world's content into a quarter of the world. And the little purple guy you can play is useless. He can't attack, nor can he be attacked. He just runs along, collecting coins. I would not recommend this game to anyone. I feel like I wasted $29.99

Welcome to Mario's big brother Luigi, this game is on steroids. I would not recommend this to the beginner or casual gamer, this thing is hard. Having said that allow me to give two thumbs up to the creators of this one. This thing will make you pull your own hair out, but it is fun. You have to be fast and your skill level has to be on top to beat this thing. You only get 100 seconds to clear each level, the challenges are abundant and come at you fast. So if your into Mario Bros. games and love a good challenge. Wimps need not apply.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SuperNumnutz It's nice to have some challenge
New Super Luigi U is a decent game. First off, it's not necessarily a stand-alone game. It's more of an addition to New Super Mario Bros. U. The map is the same, the music is the same, and the graphics are the same. Heck, even the cutscenes are the same from New Super Mario Bros. U just minus Mario. But the innovative part comes in the controls and inside the levels. The controls for Luigi are similar to that of New Super Mario Bros. 2. He can run faster, jump higher and longer, but he doesn't have very good traction. I've found that controlling Luigi has put in some challenge to this game. I've found myself constantly over-jumping gaps or slipping off platforms. But, that's not a bad thing! It's a nice little twist to the classic Mario 2D side-scrollers. But, the controls is just one part of the added challenge to this game. In each level you are given 100 seconds on the clock and each level just feels like an overall challenge. This is a very nice thing to see as each Mario game seems to be getting easier and easier (Or maybe my skill level is just developing more). So this game is more towards the experienced Mario players. I wouldn't really recommend this to really young kids as you may find your Wii U Gamepad broken one day. Anyway, the tough challenges throughout the game is something I really like. New Super Luigi U is a solid game that feels very similar but also somewhat fresh. This game definitely seems like a throwback to the classic, tough, intense games on the NES. Definitely worth a spin for any classic side-scroller fan.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ZRacer710 NSMBU but way harder
Take the assets from New Super Mario Bros U, give Luigi his classic control characteristics, ramp up the difficulty and you get New Super Luigi U. The 100 second limit makes the challenging levels frantic but also extremely fun. 2D Mario games haven't had this caliber of level design since Super Mario World.
In addition, The green case makes this a great collector's item.
