Super Luigi U Getting Retail Release

Nintendo has announced today, during their Nintendo Direct, that the upcoming DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U titled New Super Luigi U will be getting a retail release. The digital release is slated for June 29th and the retail boxed copy can be purchased starting July 26th in Europe and August 28th in North America. If you buy the digital version, you will need the New Super Mario Bros. U to play but you will not need it if you opt for the boxed version on Super Luigi U.

There will also be a new character named Nabbit. This thief like character won't be able to gain any power-ups but he also doesn't take any damage making him a great character for new players. Mario will not appear in this in any form.
