The Year of Luigi will end March 18, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto announced on Miiverse today.
Nintendo originally announced the Year of Luigi on Feb. 14, 2013, to mark the 30th anniversary of Luigi's debut in the original Mario Bros. from 1983. That means that by the time it ends, the "year" will actually have lasted for a total of 398 days, or 13 months and five days.
"Thanks to everyone's kind support, we were able to release many Luigi games over the course of the year. I hope everyone continues to cheer for the green brother," said Miyamoto. After March 18, Miiverse users will no longer be able to create posts or leave comments in the Year of Luigi community or its Developers' Room.
