Nintendo Japan's Live-Action Luigi Is Horrifying (VIDEO)

Nintendo has declared 2013 the 'year of Luigi' - which really just means that Luigi's Mansion 2 and Super Luigi U came out in the same year. (They're both excellent).

Fortunately for us in the UK, what it hasn't mean so far is that Nintendo is bringing its live-action Luigi over from Japan. Because he's utterly terrifying.

Kotaku has pointed us to a video of the live-action clip, in which Mario's green-suited Bro is played by horror icon Junji Inawaga, and appears out of the darkness to leap straight into our nightmares.

Take a look, below.
