During today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced that Luigi would be starring in his own virus-slaying puzzle game called Dr. Luigi. The game features the famous puzzling gameplay that most of us are familiar with in Dr. Mario, but turns that idea on its head with a couple of new features.
The first is L shaped capsules, which add additional challenge to the game as it combines two capsules at once in an L shape. The second is a new attack versus mode, which sees the opponents next capsule changing color at the last moment, instead of extra capsules being dropped as in Dr. Mario.
The game will be available on Wii U on December 31 in North America and January 15 in Europe. Will you be diagnosing with Dr. Luigi?
