We covered Mario last week, so now it’s time to cover his brother! This week, we’re talking all things, Luigi. We dive into the character’s personality, his stand-alone games, John Leguizamo, and how when he won a trophy we learned that Mario is a bully. And we do it all with the help of our producer and senior editor Jason! If you somehow have not heard of the famous Nintendo brother, Luigi was created by designer Shigeru Miyamoto, and is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller brother of Nintendo’s mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario franchise, often as a sidekick to his older brother. Whether you played him because you were player two or because you liked the color green, we explore why Luigi matters to games and fans beyond.
