30 years of Luigi! by Nintendrawer 30 years of Luigi! by Nintendrawer
Like I wasn't going to do something for THIS year ;b

:bulletgreen::bulletblue: June 1st, 1983 was the release date of the arcade classic, "Mario Bros.," and it was Luigi's first appearance. Just a simple color swap to inculde a 2nd Player, Luigi since then has grown into his own character with a personality of his own, making himself very different from his famous brother. Back in February, Nintendo themselves ( in a direct ) declaired that 2013 would be known as the "Year of Luigi", marking his 30 years in gaming. :) :bulletgreen::bulletblue:

Believe it or not, I came up with the idea for this pic a few years ago, during the 25th anniversay of Super Mario Bros. on the NES. I saw a few tribute pics for it, and a year later I believe, a 30th of Mario and Donkey Kong from my friend, =JamesmanTheRegenold. So I wanted to do something for my favorite man in green :) Oddly enough, Nintendo went and pulled this special year thing. Just when you think they don't care about ol' Luigi, eh? ;p

I had *saiiko help me with putting the photo and text in here ( pic was taken by me though~ ) made some good use out of that old Luigi plush huh? XD There were originally 28 Luigis drawn, but last min I forgot about dealer Luigi, then I realized, "...I might as well make it 30...". So that's where Wrecking crew Luigi came in ;) I wasn't aware that he was in the 98 version of the game until now. So all in all it works out quite nicely lol.
