Luigi Bros. is a remake of the 1983 Famicom port of Mario Bros. included in Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury as unlockable content. It was created as part of The Year of Luigi celebration. Gameplay is exactly the same as the Arcade Classics Series version. The only difference is that Mario is replaced by Luigi with his modern color scheme (a green hat and shirt with blue overalls); player 2's Luigi retains his original appearance (a white hat and shirt with green overalls, similar to Fire Luigi's color scheme in later Super Mario games). Unlike Super Mario 3D World itself, which uses a 16:9 aspect ratio, Luigi Bros. uses a 4:3 aspect ratio like the Famicom/NES port on which it is based.

Luigi Bros. is unlocked by defeating Meowser in The Great Tower of Bowser Land, which completes the main story of Super Mario 3D World, or (in the original Wii U version) by having save data for New Super Luigi U on their console. The game is accessed on the title screen for the Super Mario 3D World campaign. In the Nintendo Switch version, there is an additional option to exit back to this title screen, rather than having to exit to the Home Menu and return to access functionality outside of Luigi Bros.
