Traits we didn’t know about Luigi

Did you ever wonder about what Mario & Luigi are doing during their time off? They can’t be chasing Bowser and his comrades 24/7 and must have some reputation throughout the Kingdom. Seriously. Just think about “Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga” and remember how excited all the non-player characters got when they met Mario.
Well, Japanese illustrator Goujin Ishihara (1923-1998) did think about the two boys as well and considering his research results it’s hard to understand why everyone only remembers Mario. I know, saving the Princess again and again is an achievement but looking at these pictures gives me the impression that Luigi is able to make quite an impact on some people as well. Never thought of him as such a ladies’ man.

  1. Apparently Mario was overshadowed his whole youth by his more handsome brother. I like Luigi´s teenage moustache in the second picture a lot and also I am wondering why that spectator in the same picture is reading german weekly magazine “Stern”.
