It seems to be the ongoing trend for Nintendo: Do exactly what the fan would not want to you to do and they're gone and done it again. Super Luigi U fortunately adds the local 4 player Multiplayer element and what better way to finally throw a poplar Mario disowned spin-off character in the mix right?! Well that's not exactly the case. Instead of giving Waluigi and Daisy a chance to shine they place a Nabbit and two Toads in those desired spots yet again.
This is unfortunate for many fans and doesn't exactly go down well with Waluigi's fanbase. If this is meant to be the year of Luigi why not do it properly? Luigi's meant to be having a grand adventure but all it seems to be is yet another clone moment featuring the taller Mario bro. Another example? Luigi's going to save Princess Toadstool, why not Princess Daisy? All these questions float in the air and quite frankly it doesn't add up. It just seems to be down to laziness in regards to proper character development and roster status on Nintendo's part.
Will Waluigi be forever be disowned by Nintendo and never implemented into the main Mario franchise. Who knows but this certainly was the right time to finally show off the cooler Wario bro's moves and quite frankly it's been blown straight out the water.
A solution? Well if they made Waluigi and Daisy DLC that might sell like hotcakes but that's 99% unlikely. Super Luigi U is out digitally on June 20th and in retail stores July 26th for Europe and August 28th North America.
