Zap viruses in a falling block puzzle game featuring Dr. Luigi™!
There’s a new doctor in the house! Dr. Mar—or, uh, Dr. Luigi is a new twist on this classic virus-popping puzzle game! Use new L-shaped pills in a brand new game mode and compete with players locally or online.*
Drop pills the usual way, or get a second opinion with the Wii U GamePad controller. Virus Buster mode lets you position falling pill segments with the touchscreen and stylus to place them wherever you want. Use L-shaped pills carefully in the new Operation L mode or, for you die-hard Dr. Mario fans, there’s always Retro Remedy mode. Feeling better? Then sweat it out online* and see where you rank among the world’s elite Operation L and Retro Remedy mode players. Both modes feature online leaderboards.* It’s just what the doctor ordered…even if it’s a little late!
