Shigeru Miyamoto said in an interview that Luigi was actually planned to be in Super Mario 64 from the beginning. In fact, Super Mario 64 was even planned to be a multiplayer game for a short time. In an early prototype, Mario and Luigi could enter Peach's castle at separate times and meet together in the corridor. In the final game there is an option for the camera to be fixed, which is a remnant of a failed experiment where Mario and Luigi could walk away from each other and still be visible on the screen. Very early in development, Mario and Luigi ran together on a flat field, and everything worked fine. That is until the developers started to create more complex landforms. Due to hardware limitations for Nintendo 64, they came down to the conclusion to only using simple landforms, OR removing Luigi altogether. And in the end, Luigi was scrapped. See more
