The Story of Luigi’s Forgotten Debut Game
Luigi started as a palette swap a long time ago. When did he first pop up in the Super Mario series and why did Nintendo forget this fact? I’ll answer one of those questions. On this exciting episode of Origin Oracle, we take a look at Luigi’s origins and how he went from a color swapped character to his own fully-fledged character.
