It took Luigi a few extra decades, but he finally finished college and got his doctorate.

Nintendo revealed an update to its classic puzzle title Dr. Mario that stars Luigi. Not surprisingly, it is titled Dr. Luigi.

The puzzle game still has players trying to wipe out viruses by throwing in colored medicine, but the mechanics feature an L-shaped twist. Instead of throwing in one pill at a time, it forces you to throw in two connected pills at a time that form an “L.”

Dr. Luigi due out for the Wii U on Dec. 31 and features a handful of new modes and updated visuals.
