Year of Luigi

The Year of Luigi is no more. It officially ended on on March 18, and Shigeru Miyamoto closed out the festivities with one final message. You can find it in full below.

So much for Nintendo releasing that Luigi-themed 2DS. Rose Colored Gaming’s Matthew Wiggins has come forward and confirmed that the device is nothing more than a mod – not an official product.

Wiggins shared photos of the modded 2DS with “quite a few people”, and they somehow made their way to various blogs (including this one!). Wiggins also said he “would have sent them some better pictures” if he anticipated it being picked up as a rumored new 2DS design. He’s “beyond flattered” by the interest his mod has generated, though at the same time, hopes no one is upset that it’s not the real deal.

Nintendo may very well be preparing the first specially-designed 2DS system. Kotaku has obtained several images showing what appears to be a Year of Luigi-themed handheld.

Nintendo hasn’t made any announcement, but perhaps the unique 2DS will be out in time for the holidays.
