Nintendo puts its weight behind New Super Luigi U with a brilliant new advert.

Luigi has forever been in the plump shadow of his older brother, Mario. However, the little green plumber has got his own time in the spotlight with the arrival of New Super Luigi U. Originally launched as DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U, the game recently got a retail release as well and sees Luigi step into the hero’s shoes for a change. There has been a lot of love shown for Luigi this year. 2013 has been designated the Year of Luigi and sees the oft-forgotten plumber finally getting the recognition he deserves.

Nintendo has really stepped up its game in its efforts to promote New Super Luigi U. A live action video with Luigi doing all sorts of amazing parkour moves is making the rounds on YouTube. Shot in the form of a documentary, the 7 minute clip tells the story of Luigi, the parkour legend, and his sudden disappearance from the stage. The video references several of Luigi’s abilities which make this game different from New Super Mario Bros. U, such as his longer and floatier jump.
