New Super Mario Bros. U will receive an update on June 19 in Japan that will enable Wii U Pro controller support and will allow players to directly purchase upcoming New Super Luigi U via the game, according to director Masataka Takemoto on MiiVerse.

Takemoto's statement, translated by NeoGAF user JoeM86, states that the update's arrival is expected to match the New Super Luigi U release date.

New Super Luigi U, a downloadable campaign for New Super Mario Bros. U, will be released through the Nintendo Wii U eShop on June 20 for $19.99 in the U.S.. A standalone version of New Super Luigi U will launch on Aug. 25 in the U.S. as a packaged product at retail for $29.99.

New Super Mario Bros. U launched in North America on Nov. 18, in Europe and Australia on Nov. 30. The old-school classic Super Mario Bros. 2 hit Wii U Virtual Console on May 16 for $4.99.

Polygon contacted Nintendo about the update and will amend this post as information comes to hand.
