Nintendo President Satoru Iwata said that The Year of Luigi will continue into 2014, with a new title confirmed for Mario’s brother.

Dr. Luigi, the new title, will head to the Nintendo Wii U eshop on December 31, whilst Europe is expected to wait until January 15, 2014. Dr. Luigi will be priced at $14.99 and plays very similar to Dr. Mario, but Luigi will drop L-shaped capsules.

Dr. Luigi will feature online play, a classic mode similar to Dr. Mario, and a new Virus Buster mode (this allows for use of the stylus and Wii U Gamepad).

Nintendo will release a new Luigi statue on Club Nintendo for fans to celebrate The Year of Luigi.
