This, the year of Luigi, is set to continue!

This, the year of Luigi, is set to continue!

Luigi’s disregard for the rules is demonstrated not only in his dress sense but also his casual dismissal of the Gregorian calendar.

As every single one of us knows, this is the Year of Luigi. Foolishly many of us had supposed that the Year of Luigi would come to a glorious close at the end of the year, what with this being the Year of Luigi.

But no!

In a glorious exchange with Siliconera, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that the demise of 2013 is not powerful enough a force to bring about the end of the Year of Luigi.

Siliconera: On February 14th of last year, you held a Nintendo Direct that announced the Year of Luigi. I wanted to know if I have to give it up on December 31st or if it’s more of a “fiscal year” of Luigi, and I can celebrate into February?

Reggie: There are some Year of Luigi activities that will continue into 2014 – including some of the special products that we’ve launched (the Luigi remote and the Mario and Luigi 3DS XL) – so there will be some Luigi products to carry the Luigi banner into the next calendar year.


The Era of Luigi?
