Luigi's HistoryEdit

After the release of Donkey Kong in 1981, "Jumpman" was given the name Mario, and it was then decided that the "Mario Bros." arcade game should have two players, ultimately giving Mario a brother, who was named Luigi. Luigi's first video game appearance was in Mario Bros. He was a direct pallette swap of Mario. As with Mario, Luigi had many changes, from 2D forever, to 3D much later than Mario. Luigi's first 3D video game was Super Mario 64 DS (2004). He was one of 4 playable characters. His next 3D game would not be until Super Mario Galaxy (2007). Then again in 2010, and then 2011, and finally 2012. Luigi is said to be much more cowardly than Mario, considering the game Luigi's Mansion. He has only had 2 games so far where he has been the main protagonist, Mario is Missing!, and Luigi's Mansion. Currently, a sequel to Luigi's Mansion, currently known as Luigi's Mansion 2, is currently in development for the Nintendo 3DS.He has been featured in almost all of the same sub-genre's as Mario has:
