Super Mario 3d Luigi On The BeachSource: Nintendo

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury might seem familiar, but upon closer inspection, you'll find that this Wii U classic is anything but a straight forward port. Super Mario 3D World comes to the Nintendo Switch with brand new features, like online multiplayer, amiibo support, and the brand new mode, Bowser's Fury.

When Super Mario 3D World was originally released, it was during the Year of Luigi, Nintendo's campaign celebrating Luigi's 30th anniversary. As a sort of meta celebration, 8-Bit Luigi's were tucked away across the game, popping up in some pretty bizarre places. If you'd like to find the little green guy yourself, we can help. Here's a list of the Hidden Luigi locations in Super Mario 3D World.
