Preview: Giles Deacon x Nintendo UK Exclusive Collaboration

Here at Spindle Towers, we’re excited about the exclusive collaboration between Giles Deacon and Nintendo to celebrate the launch of Luigi’s (the somewhat overshadowed brother of Mario) second ever solo game, Luigi’s Mansion 2, where he gets the chance to take the spotlight.  In the new game, Luigi is back on a mission to remove a bunch of determined ghosts from some super-spooky mansions. Armed with his trusty “Poltergust 5000” ghost-grabbing vacuum cleaner, Mario’s brother takes centre stage to capture the troublesome phantoms.

A lover of computer games, Giles designed the limited edition T-shirt in support of the Nintendo sidekick, stating: “I have always been a huge computer game fan so was delighted to design this Luigi’s Mansion 2 T-shirt. I was inspired by elements of my past collections and combined these with the exciting graphic sensibilities associated with Luigi. I love Luigi!”

As well as Giles Deacon, other notables are also coming out in support of Luigi ahead of his starring role in Luigi’s Mansion 2. Jack Guinness, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Alexander Vlahos and James Grint, brother of Rupert, have already donned their #TeamLuigi T-shirts in favour of the good-natured underdog.

Over the coming weeks, keep your eyes peeled for #TeamLuigi on the Nintendo UK Twitter page, as details emerge of how you can win your very own limited edition Luigi’s Mansion 2 T-shirt.

Show your support for Luigi on Twitter by sharing your favourite Luigi moments, using the #TeamLuigi hashtag.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 will be available 28th March 2013 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL and will be available both at retail and as a digital download from Nintendo eShop.
