Dr. Luigi announced for Wii U, coming December 31st

Nintendo announced a Luigi themed Dr.Mario installment for the Wii U this morning. The game will feature a brand new block type to mix up the traditional Dr. Mario gameplay, a L shape themed for Luigi of course.

Not only that but when chaining a combo together in a two player battle mode you will not longer drop blocks on your opponent. Now, the color of their next L shaped block will change dramatically, forcing them to re-think their block placement at the last second.

Dr. Luigi will hit the Wii U eShop on December 31st.
