Dr. Luigi launches on December 31
The “Year of Luigi” may be nearing its end, but Nintendo still has at least one more title for Mario’s brother. This title is Dr. Luigi, and will feel familiar to many gamers.
The reason behind the familiar feel is that Dr. Luigi will play similar to the classic puzzle game, Dr. Mario. You will need to line up color-coded pills in order to destroy the viruses in each stage.
The upcoming game will utilize different skill settings and attackes in multiplayer games, as well as a completely original mode in which the pills are L-shaped (this shouldn’t be a surprise, considering the star of the game). In addition, the game will come with a Dr. Mario mode, compatibility with the Wii U GamePad, and online play so that, “wannabe virus buster from all around the world can compete.”
The game will launch exclusively on the Nintendo eShop on December 31, 2013. It will retail for $14.99.
