In a match last night at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, one Luigi player pulled out a move that few would ever expect in a competitive setting: the taunt.
Kingdom Battle is a love letter to Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom, and you see this reverence in nearly every aspect of the game, from mechanics to the animations. Even the flavor text is wonderful.
Super Mario 64 was a watershed moment for our favorite video game plumber. Mario made the leap into the third dimension and brought a colorful array of characters with him but a major ally was missing: his brother Luigi. Was he just hiding the whole time?
Canadian actor and comedian Tony Rosato, who provided the voice for Luigi in the animated series The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World, has died at the age of 62 of a suspected heart attack, the Toronto Sun reports.
If you’ve visited the New Super Luigi U Community recently, you might have noticed something was a little different. Instead of prominently displaying the green-overalled plumber, the social media community has seen a number of banner changes that definitely didn’t come from Nintendo.
Nintendo’s favorite son and his brother or whatever took the stage at last night’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, followed by a live-action Super Mario Bros. bit featuring that Goodburger guy.
It is 2016, and the Year of Luigi still hasn’t ended.
This fall, a traditional Japanese screen painting with Mario and Luigi will go on display in Kyoto. Here is how that work of art was made.
Mario is Raijin (雷神), the Japanese god of thunder and storms. Luigi is Fujin (風神), the Japanese god of wind. And this is one incredibly cool piece of art.
Praising Mario is Missing is no way to impress someone with your gaming acumen. But it’s true; I thoroughly enjoyed Mario Is Missing as a young kid. My father didn’t know much about video games, but he did know that ‘Mario’ was a signifier of quality (or, at least, it should have been). So he bought me Mario Is Missing…
Here we go! These are the first officially licensed Mario and Luigi costumes for Japan.
The year of Luigi never ends.
When life gives you a giant vacuum, you damn well better pretend to be Luigi in Luigi's Mansion.
Nintendo might be the master of all things cute, but they've got their dark side as well. I mean, have you ever found yourself wondering mid-Smash Bros. match: "Why are you all so mad at each other? Wouldn't you rather be relaxing on a beach together somewhere...I dunno...safe?"
Charles Martinet, the voice actor behind Mario, Luigi and Wario, has an Instagram account. And it's fantastic.
Following on from the release earlier this year of a killer Mario set, this SH Figuarts Luigi is looking just as good.
