Year Of Luigi Coming to an End on March 18

Shigeru Miyamoto revealed today via a Miiverse post that the Year of Luigi will be officially coming to a close on March 18. He also explained that the Year of Luigi Community and Developer’s Room on Miiverse will be be closed on that date as well.

The Year of Luigi was designed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of gaming’s most beloved little brothers, and saw the release of several Luigi-themed games and goodies, including Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, New Super Luigi Bros, and Dr. Luigi. Whether Nintendo will continue this format with another character or franchise is unclear, but it would be a great display of intent for the year ahead; the Year of Metroid, anyone?
