New Super Mario Bros. U Luigi DLC is the size of a full game

Some of the most exciting news out of today's 3DS-focused Nintendo Direct presentations doesn't relate to Nintendo's handheld at all. Rather, it seems that Nintendo's home console DLC plans have stepped up a gear, with the announcement of New Super Luigi U for New Super Mario Bros. U.

The goliath DLC removes Mario from the equation, bringing the other brother in as hero with his own set of levels to explore. The most impressive part of this news is that the DLC will replace each and every one of the more than 80 levels on the New Super Mario Bros. U map with a new one, making this add-on near enough the equivalent of a whole new game. The player will be able to switch between the game's original content and the New Super Luigi U. DLC at will.

Details on the release date and  pricing for the New Super Luigi U. DLC will be on the site as soon as they emerge.

    On one hand, this is awesome DLC! An excellent way to extend the life of a game beyond a few extra levels! On the other hand, many Super Mario titles have had a similar Luigi/green star mode built in as a full completion bonus. That first hand is big enough to hide the second, though.

    Yeah especially since these are brand new levels built from the ground up instead of just updated

    Damn, gotta pick this up now for the replay value alone (and plus Mario game are awesome)

    Now THIS is how you make DLC.

    Considering everything is built new from the ground up for Luigi, this really IS big, even better if they decide to change the boss battles themselves
