Luigi in Mario Golf: World Tour

As part of what Nintendo is calling “the year of Luigi,” a year-long celebration of the other plumber brother, Luigi will be appearing in the brand new Mario Golf: World Tour for the 3DS. Presumably, he’d be in it regardless of the year, but we’ll throw Nintendo a bone this time. This will be the tenth entry in Nintendo’s Golf series, which hasn’t seen a new release since Mario Golf: Advance Tour in 2004. We have no information regarding what 3DS features will be implemented in the game, but Nintendo has stated that players will be able to choose between a simple control scheme or a more complex, full-featured one. Based on the trailer shown in the Nintendo Direct video this morning, we know Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, and a very sassy Bowser will all be hitting the links sometime this summer.

It’s a safe bet that we’ll be seeing much more of Mario Golf: World Tour come E3 in June, but in the meantime, you can watch the trailer and the rest of today’s Nintendo Direct here.
