Earlier today Nintendo hosted a Japanese-only Nintendo Direct aimed at addressing some of the release dates and future products for the region. Among the announcements was a release date of September 14 for Monster Hunter 4 and the above trailer for Super Luigi U, which is entirely new. The downloadable title will be 1.5GB and will be available on the following dates for various regions:
- June 19 – Japan
- June 20 – US
- June 20 – UK
The retail version that so many of you are after for that nifty green box will be available on the following dates:
- July 13 – Japan
- July 26 – UK
- August 25 – US
As you can see, the US region has a considerable wait period for anyone wanting that green box. The game features 82 brand new levels and the new playable character Nabbit for multiplayer, who cannot be harmed by enemies instead of being able to use power ups. If you’ll be purchasing the game, let us know in the comments what you think of the trailer and whether you plan on getting the downloadable version or holding out for a boxed copy.
