Dr. Luigi… Paging Dr. Luigi

DrLuigi

Nintendo sure is squeezing every last day out of this self-proclaimed Year of Luigi. And I mean that quite literally.

On December 31st, the last day of 2013, Nintendo will release Dr. Luigi exclusively for Wii U via the eShop. The $15 alternative to the classic color-coded pill puzzler starring that other Mushroom Kingdom bro will feature a familiar Retro Remedy mode based on the original Dr. Mario rules, a new mode with L-shaped pill puzzle pieces, an online multiplayer battle mode with different skill settings and attacks and Wii U Gamepad functionality.

Sounds like a fun way for Luigi to end his year of finally getting to stand outside of the shadow of his big brother in red.
