Mario Golf: Super Rush features a big character roster that includes several different characters lifted from the Super Mario Bros. series. All characters come with different stats and unique abilities that make them more suited for certain playstyles, allowing all types of players to find the right character for them.
Here’s everything you need to know about Luigi and his unique abilities.
Luigi, like Mario, is among the fastest characters in the game, coming with a base Speed stat of 9, making him great in play modes where you are supposed to move quickly around the course. The character, however, has a very low Power stat that makes him unsuited for modes where you have to use as few strokes as possible, such as Speed Golf. With his stats being a little unbalanced, Luigi is not exactly a character for newcomers.
Power – 211 yd
Stamina – 10/15
Speed – 9/10
Control – 7/10
Spin – 3/10
Luigi’s Special Shot is Ice Flower Freeze, which freezes the ground in impact. This unique property makes it extremely useful in certain situations where you want your opponents to have a hard time making accurate shots, as the slippery ground increases roll distance and ball bounce. As such, the Ice Flower Freeze is best used in the areas near a hole.
Luigi’s Special Dash is Speed-Skate Dash, which leaves behind an ice trail that will make opponents fall to the ground if they are close to Luigi. This makes this Special Dash quite bad, as the area of effect is quite limited and opponents can just avoid getting too close to Luigi while the Special Dash is being performed.
How to Unlock Luigi Star Club Sets
Luigi’s base stats can be altered by using the Star Club sets that can be unlocked by earning Character points. To get the first set, which improves Power and Spin at the cost of Control, you must earn 1000 Character Points. To get the second, which improves Power and Spin at the cost of Control, you must earn 2000 Character Points.
