Luigi's Mansion 3

Luigi's Mansion 3

A relaxing hotel getaway... what could possibly go wrong.

Join the cowardly hero Luigi on a ghostly – and gooey – quest to save Mario and friends in Luigi’s Mansion 3 for Nintendo Switch !

You and a friend can traverse the otherworldly floors of a haunted hotel in local co-op, battling mischievous ghosts and solving paranormal puzzles together*.

Welcome to the Last Resort!

An invitation to a swanky hotel holiday with Mario and co. – how could Luigi refuse such an offer? However, this dream getaway soon turns into a nightmare when ghosts start to run amok and his royal ghoulishness King Boo traps Mario and friends inside paintings!

With the help of his old pal Professor E. Gadd and his latest gizmos, Luigi must suck up his fears once again to stop King Boo’s wicked plans and save his friends.

The suite life

You’d be surprised what attractions can be found in this hotel! From a pirate-themed restaurant to a medieval castle and even...a pyramid, each floor of the hotel has its own unique theme.

Work your way through each floor one-by-one, solving paranormal puzzles and battling trouble-making ghosts along the way.

Castle MacFrights

Ready thy lance Luigi, and prepare to duel! Avoid devious traps and sword-wielding spectres on your way to joust against the king in this medieval theme park.

Garden Suites

It’s all gone to pot in this overgrown atrium. Swing on vines, dodge giant bouncing pineapples and other perilous plant life – good job the Poltergust works as a leaf blower.

Paranormal Productions

Lights, camera, BOO! Play director and see the horrors of the silver screen spring to life in this spooky film studio.

Tomb Suites

A pyramid...inside a hotel?! You better believe it. Get ready to deal with creepy mummies, fatal booby traps and sand... So much sand.

In a hotel this big, it’s easy to get lost. Use the Virtual Boo to get your bearings or get some tips on your objective from its creator, Professor E.Gadd.

Ghost-hunting gadgets!

He may be cowardly, but Luigi’s no stranger to a little ghost hunting – and the ghoulish guests in this hotel have overstayed their welcome!

Use the Strobulb to catch these pesky phantoms by surprise, then reel them up with your souped-up vacuum cleaner: the Poltergust G-00 .

These ghosts won’t go down without a fight – in fact, some have come up with crafty ways of escaping. Unfortunately for them, Luigi’s got some new tricks up his sleeve too.

While trapping a ghost, slam them on the ground to inflict some damage. Try slamming ghosts into other ghosts to show ‘em who’s boss!

Suction Shot

Fire this plunger to attach it to something, then pull the string and...destroy furniture and more. It can also be used to wrestle shields away from defensive ghost types.

Need a bit of crowd control? Use a burst to release a blast of air to blow away nearby enemies. It gives Luigi a bit of air too, allowing him to dodge incoming attacks.

A squishy sidekick

In a hotel like this, you’re sure to encounter some obstacles too great for Luigi to handle by himself. In these situations, call upon Professor E.Gadd’s latest creation: Gooigi!

This gooey, green doppelganger can use his...err...gooiness to squeeze through tight spaces, walk across dangerous spike-laden floors, help lift heavy objects and overcome all sorts of contraptions.

Did you know that Gooigi makes for a great co-op partner? Hand a Joy-Con controller to a friend to have them join Luigi’s adventure*.

Team up in local co-op!

Discover the origins of Gooigi in Professor E.Gadd’s Research Journal

Share the scares!

Enjoy some multiplayer ghost hunting either locally*** or online** with a trip to the ScareScraper, or go wild with up to seven other players* on one Nintendo Switch console in the ScreamPark!

Please note: paid downloadable content will come to Luigi's Mansion 3 in the future, adding new content to the ScareScraper and ScreamPark multiplayer modes!

About the Game

Luigi's Mansion 3 is a game in the Luigi's Mansion series for the Nintendo Switch. Unlike previous games in the series, the game takes place in a haunted hotel rather than an actual mansion. It is the third Luigi's Mansion game in the main series, being developed by Next Level Games. The game is 6.3 GB (6,300 MB) in file size, though more with downloadable content (DLC).

One day, Luigi received a letter. The letter was sent by Hellen Gravely, the owner of a big hotel up in the mountains. When Luigi opened it, he discovered that it was a special invitation!

"Congratulations, Luigi! You're the lucky winner of a free stay at a world-class hotel, The Last Resort! We look forward to dazzling you with first-rate hospitality and service. Please be sure to invite any friends or family that you'd like to bring, as well!" -Hellen Gravely

Luigi was overcome with excitement at the letter and rushed to invite his big brother, Mario, as well as Princess Peach and a trio of Toads. Soon, they all departed for the hotel. Upon arriving at the beautiful hotel, Luigi and his friends were warmly welcomed by Hellen Gravely herself! Afterward, they were each shown to their rooms.

Little did they realize it was all a trap put in motion by Hellen Gravely in order to impress a resurgent King Boo. Awakened in the night by Princess Peach's scream, Luigi found the giant hotel swarming with ghosts. Not only that, but all of his friends had been sealed inside picture frames! Will Luigi be able to rescue his trapped friends and escape the hotel in one piece?

Luigi's Mansion 3 plays much like the two previous entries in the series, Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon , returning to a singular setting much like the first game while featuring a variety of themed floors akin to the second game's mansions, allowing the player to re-explore already completed rooms. The Poltergust G-00 retains the basic qualities of the two previous vacuums, as well as the Strobulb item and the Dark-Light Device , though it adds a targeting mechanism when blowing out items or a plunger. It also introduces new abilities, such as slamming ghosts on the ground or into each other, firing a grabbable plunger with the Suction Shot , and creating a shockwave or being lifted up with a Burst .

Luigi has a new device known as the Virtual Boo (VB) , a parody of the Virtual Boy , which serves the same function as the Game Boy Horror and Dual Scream did from the two previous games. The money collected with the Poltergust G-00 can be used to buy Gold Bones ( 1,000 G ), Boo Finder cartridges ( 1,000 G ), Gem Finder cartridges ( 1,000 G ), and also to buy hints from the Virtual Boo's E. Gadd Hotline while in the Lab inside the Basement to find in-game floor themed collectible gems and other various puzzles, which when brought will activate the HD Rumble in the Joy-Cons when getting close to a gem or Boo in morse code while in certain rooms on floors when using Gooigi, which can also be felt when using the Poltergust G-00. Professor E. Gadd will sometimes suggest Luigi to come to his Lab in the Basement to buy hints from him to solve the floor's puzzles and such whenever the player is struggling, though hints can be turned off in the Guide/Settings menu.

There are six floor-themed gems and one Boo on each floor. The game automatically fully saves progress whenever entering a room or elevator after ten seconds. There are in-game achievements for certain objectives. Story mode (co-op), ScareScraper (co-op), and ScreamPark can't be played in co-op multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch Lite without detached official Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons. There's a brightness slider to control the hue of a given area from darker to lighter in the game's Settings. Story mode can be beaten in roughly five to ten hours. Gooigi , introduced in the Nintendo 3DS remake of the first Luigi's Mansion , reappears and is stored in the Poltergust G-00, hence Gooigi. Gooigi has 25 HP, while Luigi has 99 HP, and can be called upon to pass obstacles Luigi cannot, such as spikes and bars. However, it is weak to fire and water, and will lose all its health immediately if it comes into contact with them, causing it to immediately return to Luigi.

The Game Over screen happens when Luigi loses all of his HP, and it showcases King Boo having Luigi, Mario, Professor E. Gadd, Princess Peach, and the three Toads trapped inside paintings and ends saying, "Good Night!". Luigi and Gooigi cannot be controlled at the same time in single-player mode, but Gooigi can be controlled by a second player with the second Joy-Con (R) controller for co-op multiplayer. If Luigi attempts to enter a door with Gooigi out, Gooigi will automatically retract into the Poltergust G-00.

ScareScraper & ScreamPark

Like its direct predecessor, ScareScraper also returns, allowing for up to eight-player co-op multiplayer (via four Luigis and four Gooigis) to clear either 5, 10, or a random amount of floors between two to ten, with a five-minute time limit for each floor, except the Rooftop, which has a time limit of roughly ten minutes. The mode also features procedurally generated floors, with different challenges on each floor such as Capture the Ghosts! , Find the Toads! , and Collect the Money! . It acts very similarly to its prequel appearance, though it adds new abilities and functions such as the super suction , super strobe , a red siren trapdoor detector helmet , voice chat , and the Blackout . Boolossus awaits the Luigis and Gooigis at the top of the ScareScraper hotel Rooftop upon completing all the set floors. ScareScraper is more challenging than story mode, however.

As for ScreamPark, it's a multiplayer party mode where two teams called Team Luigi and Team Gooigi consisting of Luigis and Gooigis respectively, set to compete against each other on different levels with a two-minute time limit where they have to capture the most Goobs (Ghost Hunt), collect the most Coins while riding floaties in an indoor swimming pool (Coin Floating), and manage to avoid hitting a wooden castle pellet trap and smash the most bullseye targets on the ends of a rotating wooden pirate wheel to win (Cannon Barrage).

The game was originally going to be a Wii U title, though development started for Nintendo's next-generation console in earnest following the completion of Next Level Games' Metroid Prime: Federation Force . The Slam and Burst moves were planned during the Wii U prototype. Prior to his debut appearance in the Nintendo 3DS remake of Luigi's Mansion , Gooigi was already planned for Luigi's Mansion 3 upon the Nintendo Switch 's launch when the developers got the inspiration from the Joy-Con for multiplayer mode. While in development for the Nintendo Switch , Luigi's Mansion 3 was originally a tentative title prior to becoming the final name.

In an interview, producer Kensuke Tanabe mentioned that the developers had experimented with including a warp system where the player could turn on TV sets found in the rooms and warp between them to travel throughout the entire hotel, much like the Paranormal Productions eighth floor. However, as it was not possible to include a TV in every room, the idea of using this mechanic throughout the entire hotel was scrapped in favor of the elevator idea.

Paid downloadable content will come to Luigi's Mansion 3 in 2020, with part one being released on April 30, 2020 for US $9.99 and part two releasing on July 31, 2020. Players who purchase DLC will also receive a Flashlight Type-F, which makes a Polterpup image on a wall. Part one includes:

  • Three new minigames for multiplayer ScreamPark mode
  • Six new Themed Ghosts
  • Three new outfits for Luigi, based on a knight, a mummy, and a disco-style outfit
  • Three new floor themes in co-op ScareScraper mode
  • A special bonus which will give immediate access to Flashlight Type-P that makes Polterpup's face appear when shining a wall with the flashlight

Luigi’s invited to the towering Last Resort hotel, but when Mario and friends go missing, our green-clad hero will have to conquer his fears to save them. Slam, blow away, and vacuum up ghosts with the all-new Poltergust G-00, and join forces with Gooigi to overcome the puzzling contraptions and mischievous boss on each themed floor.

Gooigi can walk on spikes, slip through tight spaces, and help Luigi overcome obstacles he can’t tackle alone.

I think Luigi and I feel the same way about being scared.

Every new room in a horror game sends my heart into my throat. Every tiny movement could be something waiting to jump out and grab me. My imagination is often more vivid — and terrifying — than any actual monster I end up facing.

In Luigi’s case, the ghosts haunting him in Luigi’s Mansion 3 are quite real. His panicked muttering as he turns a doorknob, and his habit of jumping at every little bump in the night, are justified. He never becomes less terrified, even as he clears floor after floor of ghosts in a haunted hotel.

This is our scaredy-cat hero’s best adventure yet, and it’s made even better by just how much he dislikes being on it.

Luigi and his friends — Mario, Peach, and three Toads — arrive at a gleaming hotel with the promise of a relaxing vacation. (Haven’t they been fooled by this trick before?) The hotel doesn’t take long to reveal its haunted side, trapping everyone except Luigi in paintings, and forcing him reluctantly on the rescue yet again.

The premise isn’t exactly new. It’s been most of the decade since Luigi’s last spooky foray on the Nintendo 3DS, and the series’ well-defined style has been elevated by the extra power of the Switch. Every hotel floor in Luigi’s Mansion 3 brims with detail, and the environmental lighting is just atmospheric enough to capture the haunted vibe without leaving me to fumble through the dark.

Close up of Luigi looking off into the horizon.

Ghosts fill the room with an otherworldly glow whenever they appear. I live for every single cinematic, which felt like they could have been snippets from a beautifully animated movie starring Luigi and his ghost dog, Polterpup. It’s another prime example of Nintendo’s ability to make its own games sing on hardware that tends to be much less powerful than the competition.

After the hotel’s spooky transformation, all its elevator buttons get snatched away by its spectral occupants, and Luigi must go floor by floor to find each one by beating that floor’s boss. The paintings are scattered through the hotel too, so I eventually locate them and rescue trapped Professor E. Gadd, inventor of all the ghost-battling technology, and a handful of Toads while making my way to the top.

Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for 3DS started equally strong for me, but my interest flagged after a few hours due to the often repetitive nature of the game. Developer Next Level Games never stops surprising me. Each of the hotel’s 15 floors (plus two basement levels) is remarkably different from the previous one. There are levels you might expect to find in a luxury hotel (retail stores, a gym, and a plush music venue), and wild flights of fancy that stretch far beyond what a single floor should contain (one level features a pyramid full of traps, and a pirate ship docked in a whole harbor is somehow tucked into the middle of the building).

Luigi steps off the elevator at a haunted hotel to a room covered in neon signs, and a light up dance floor.

Luigi uses many of the same tools from previous Luigi’s Mansion games. His Poltergust, a backpack with a vacuum cleaner attachment, can suck up pretty much anything: trash, sand, or ghosts. It can rip curtains from walls or spin large valves to change water levels. Reversing the flow of air allows me to blow things away, or shoot objects stuck in its craw at obstacles or enemies.

There’s also a suction cup I fire, then attach to my vacuum so I can topple furniture or flip switches, an amped-up flashlight to stun ghosts, and a shimmery Dark Light whose beam reveals secrets when shone on them. Luigi can now also shoot a blast of air that operates much like a butt stomp in past Mario games, allowing me to scatter enemies or knock things loose from the environment.

These are simple tools, but Luigi’s Mansion 3 never stops finding creative ways for me to use them. Depending on whatever imaginative level I’m on, blowing air can also be used push carts on wheels, or to unfurl a large leaf for Luigi to walk across. A burst of air can open the service counter so I can sneak behind the front desk. There always seemed to be a hidden object (or ghost!) to uncover with my Dark Light.

Luigi comes across a purple ghost playing a piano

The game even rewards my most chaotic instincts. I saw a huge tuba and thought, “Will it make noise if I blow air through it?” Hell yes it did, but doing so also rewarded me with a shower of cash. It’s easy to collect loads of in-game currency throughout the game, but it never stops being fun to hoover up every shiny coin, gold bar, or dollar bill twisting in the breeze.

I was also pleasantly surprised at how often Gooigi — the dead-eyed, Jello Jiggler version of Luigi, who is stored in his backpack — was essential to puzzle solving and exploration. Gooigi can do everything Luigi can, except open doors or move through even the slightest amount of water, so I’d often need to pop him out when Luigi was trapped by a ghost or just unable to reach a certain item. Gooigi has a few extra powers as well, including the ability to squish through a fence or down a drain. (Also, each of Gooigi’s noises are so deliciously squelchy that I loved listening to them each time I discharged him from his tank on my back.)

There are whole levels that need the human and goo to work in tandem, and in single-player mode I switch between them, leaving the other character in a weird, comical slump. (Co-op allows a player to join and just control Gooigi, but it’s a lopsided experience since he can’t open doors.)

Levels are short enough. One trip through rarely wears out its welcome, though the game does have some backtracking I found pretty tedious. The breadth of puzzles means I never completely breezed through the hotel; each level also has six colorful gems and a bonus Boo to hunt down. Each time I felt like I needed a change of pace after a long level chocked with puzzles, I’d be met with a smaller floor, focused on the boss fight.

A giant set of shark’s teeth and glowing red eyes breaking through a pirate ship’s wooden planking.

And the bosses are the most uneven part of Luigi’s Mansion 3. Some offer the perfect amount of challenge, with creative twists on the “stun, vacuum, bash” formula I use on the normal enemy ghosts. The most captivating fights allowed me to remain active by giving me things to do to move the fight along, while the worst boss battles gave me little to do. I’d dodge the enemy’s attacks until they finally dropped a bomb I could shoot back, or they somehow got their weapon stuck in the ground, only to be dislodged after I had attacked them.

But boss fights are a small sliver of the Luigi’s Mansion 3 experience. Each level is a complex onion of ideas to peel back, layer by layer. Next Level Games continues its strong tradition of granting Luigi far more depth than his superstar older brother, even if he is always doomed to keep getting scared for our enjoyment.

ESRB Rates Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has issued a rating for Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD  on Nintendo Switch , suggesting that Nintendo is readying the spooky quest for launch on the portable home console.

“This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Luigi as he retrieves mysterious artifacts,” the ESRB rating reads. “Players search haunted houses while using a flashlight and vacuum pack to suck up objects and capture ghosts. Some ghosts can punch Luigi, causing him to cry out, blink, and collapse to the ground. Other sequences allow players to shoot seeds at mice and launch cartoony bombs at enemy creatures.”

Revealed in September’s Nintendo Direct , this spooky adventure was originally released for the Nintendo 3DS but has now been “visually enhanced” in high definition for the portable home console.

The Dark Moon that hangs over Evershade Valley appears to have a calming effect on the ghosts that reside there. The quirky Professor E. Gadd has been studying the friendly spirits, but, when the Dark Moon suddenly breaks into pieces that are scattered across several haunted mansions, the once-friendly ghosts become hostile.

It is up to Luigi to summon his courage to brave the haunted mansions to restore the Dark Moon to its rightful place in the sky. That will see him use the Poltergust 5000, a superpowered ghost-hunting tool that can suck up ghosts and blow air as he searches every nook and cranny of the dust-ridden buildings.

The game will also include the ScareScraper multiplayer mode, which, whether locally or online, lets up to four players team up as ghost hunters to take on the terrifying tower’s challenges.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD will be released at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2024.

Great puzzles

Evolved mechanics from previous games

Gorgeous visuals

Rewarding cutscenes

Somewhat short

Luigi's Mansion 3 finally released for Nintendo Switch on Halloween 2019. I've been a huge fan of these games since the first one came out on GameCube back in 2001. As you can imagine, I've been desperate for another game in the series considering that there have only been three games released in the last 20 years with the sequel having come out about six year ago. Fortunately for me and other Luigi fans out there, all of our waiting was well worth it.

This lighthearted ghost adventure opens with Luigi, Mario, Peach, Polterpup, and three Toads heading to the Last Resort hotel for a luxurious stay. Shortly after falling asleep in their respective rooms, Luigi awakes to screams and discovers that not only has his longtime nemesis King Boo captured his brother and friends, but the entire hotel is infested with ghosts. With the aid of his Poltergust vacuum, his friendly ghost canine, and his gooey doppelgänger, Gooigi, he'll brave the floors of the hotel to acquire specters and free everyone.

You obviously don't expect this game to be a scary one, but what you might not realize is that this game is a comedy. Instead of shocking you with jump scares it surprises you with hilarious moments. It's hard not to like the scaredy cat plumber who plunges into room after room despite being openly terrified out of his wits. I don't know how many times I chuckled at the exaggerated expressions on Luigi's face. The game mechanics are familiar, but evolved from previous titles, and the game just feels like a natural progression for the series. I got this game bright and early on Halloween morning and have played through the entire game having collected all of the Gems and hidden Boos. This is one of the most fun games I've played in years. Here's my review for Luigi's Mansion 3.

More: Everything you need to know about Luigi's Mansion 3

One of the most fun games to play

Luigi's Mansion 3 What I like

Great puzzles creative and clever.

Luigi's Mansion games are somewhat similar to Zelda games in that you're basically put in different dungeons and must solve puzzles using your equipment in order to progress further in the story. What I love about Luigi's Mansion 3 is that it really offers some challenging situations without being super frustrating. Some of these I can figure out at a glance, but others have me scratching my head for a few minutes.

Figuring out puzzles is challenging and very rewarding.

I often have to employ the Poltergust or Gooigi in ways that I wouldn't initially think of to find a creative solution. This makes it so that figuring out puzzles is both challenging and very rewarding. Just about everything can be interacted with in one way or another so it really makes you want to check everywhere.

Some of the biggest challenges come from collecting gems scattered throughout the hotel. Each floor has its own specific gem shapes for you to discover. Sometimes you can collect all of them while running through a floor the first time, but others require you to come back later after you've acquired something.

Evolved mechanics Poltergust abilities and Gooigi

Anyone who's played a Luigi's Mansion title before will feel at home with the third game's mechanics. As before, you use the Poltergust to vacuum up ghosts and just about everything else in the hotel. However, there are also a few new abilities up player's sleeves. Luigi can now shoot a plunger at heavy items and then pull on the plunger to hurl the object over his head. This usually results in the object exploding and revealing goodies.

These new abilities feel right like they're the natural evolution for the series.

He can also slam ghosts on the ground while sucking them up to decrease their health faster. One of the best things about this is that you can slam ghosts into each other thereby reducing several specters' health at once. These new abilities feel right and add enough difference from previous games to really make this game feel like the proper evolution for the series.

Players also get to control Gooigi, a gelatinous version of Luigi. In order to solve puzzles, take down enemies, or collect all the hidden gems you'll need to employ both of these characters in creative ways. It really helps switch up the Luigi's Mansion formula without straying too far from it.

Gorgeous visuals Floor themes and hilarious ghost antics

When the first Luigi's Mansion released on GameCube, I remember admiring the details of Luigi's gloved hand whenever he opened a door. The graphics have gotten even better with the Switch and there's still plenty of attention to Luigi's detail. For one thing, the stitching on Luigi's clothes look gorgeous and captivates me whenever there's a cutscene.

If the ghosts themselves don't make you laugh, then Luigi's exaggerated, horrified expressions definitely will.

Then there's the hotel themes. I absolutely love stepping out onto a floor for the first time, not sure of what exactly I'll find. Everything just feels playful, like there really are a bunch of mischievous ghosts running around making fun of the fact that they're dead and messing with you. Each floor is designed beautifully, with a playful air about it. It really encourages you to dive into a new level and see what there is to discover.

Perhaps the best thing about exploring the hotel is that there are hundreds of instances when you'll come upon a ghost doing something that makes you laugh. It seriously just makes it fun to explore every inch of a room in case you find an undead spook doing something hilarious. I mean, if I was dead, I'd probably have fun with it too. Just when you think you know what's going on, the specter does something that subverts your expectations and makes you chuckle to yourself. If the ghosts themselves don't make you laugh, then Luigi's exaggerated, horrified expressions definitely will.

Playing with a buddy Gooigi and co-op

I wasn't sure if the local 2-player co-op would actually be any good or if it would be more like what you find with Super Mario Odyssey where controlling player 2 feels like it's just a way to appease someone that wants to play with you. I was happy to discover that while it isn't perfect, the 2-player co-op is actually pretty good.

After starting the game, you have to explore the hotel for a little bit before you find Gooigi and unlock 2-player co-op , but once that's done, you and a buddy can run through the floors together. Gooigi does have his limitations: he cannot walk on water, touch fire, or open doors. However, he's just as useful as Luigi when it comes to using the Poltergust vacuum. Sometimes Luigi gets attacked and the only way to save him is for Gooigi to do something. Additionally, some puzzles can only be completed by this gooey character. It really makes playing as player 2 a fun, inclusionary experience rather than a tedious affair.

While the co-op is great, it isn't perfect. There are situations where Gooigi might go somewhere and has no way of getting back to Luigi. To continue playing, you'll need to switch back to Solo mode for a second, call Gooigi back to you, and then go back to Co-op mode. Fortunately, this only happened to me a handful of times, but it was annoying whenever it occurred.

Multiplayer modes A surprisingly great party game

In addition to the main story, Luigi's Mansion 3 offers several party games. I initially guessed that these would be half-baked games that no one would want to play, however I was wrong. I loved being able to run around the ScareScraper looking for ghosts and Toads with friends. Additionally, the versus party games proved to be super fun. You get divided up into two teams: a team of multicolored Luigis and a team of multicolored Gooigis. Then you compete to see who can get the most points. These games had me yelling and laughing as I competed against my friends. It was definitely more fun than I was expecting.

Luigi's Mansion 3 What I don't like

Controlling the poltergust hard to aim correctly.

It can be hard to tell where exactly you're aiming your Poltergust vacuum

I really, really like this game overall, but the main flaw is something that has been around since the first game; it can be hard to tell where exactly you're aiming your Poltergust vacuum. This proves to be especially frustrating when you're trying to suck up coins before they disappear, when you're trying to capture ghosts, or when you're trying to shoot an object. True, I noticed that the game was pretty forgiving and sometimes allowed me to suck something up without actually being fully aimed at it, but it still proved incredibly hard to reach certain things.

I would have liked the game even better if it was somehow easier to control the vacuum. That being said, I was able to beat the game easily enough with this issue in place. A good rule of thumb is to try and see where the light from the vacuum is pointing, this makes it a little easier to aim the nozzle in the correct direction.

A short adventure Doesn't take long to beat

When I was about halfway through the hotel, I felt that horrible feeling sink in. I hadn't started playing that long ago, which meant that I was going to beat the game soon. Unfortunately, this prediction was right. I finished the main story and collected all of the gems and Boos within 21 hours. That's pretty short compared to other games out there. That being said, every moment, every floor, and every boss was fun to encounter. The game provided ways to elongate the plot without making it feel like it was being spread thin and I thoroughly enjoyed my romp through the hotel.

Luigi's Mansion 3 Bottom Line

Luigi's Mansion 3 is a must-have for any Nintendo Switch owner. It's by far the most playful game I've been able to get my hands on in ages. The story is lighthearted, the characters are hilarious, the puzzles are challenging without being frustrating, and the game seriously just oozes charm. Just like a really good book, I loved every moment of it and I didn't want the plot to end. You definitely need to pick up a copy of the game if you haven't done so already.

Run through a haunted hotel in your search for Luigi's missing friends. You can play on your own in Solo mode or pass a controller to a friend and take on ghosts in local 2-player co-op. There are even several multiplayer party games to play with friends.

Defeat ghosts as you search for your friends

The newest game in the Luigi's Mansion series has you playing once again as the scared plumber. But this time, you'll be exploring a haunted hotel, using new fighting elements, and have the help of a gooey doppelgänger. You can even play the main story with two-player co-op. This game also includes multiplayer modes where up to 8 players can play together either locally or online.

Luigi’s mansion 4: everything we know about the expected sequel.

Luigi’s Mansion is one of the most popular spin-off series in the Super Mario franchise, and Luigi’s Mansion 4 will look to continue that reputation.

Luigi’s Mansion is one of the most popular spin-off series in the history of the Super Mario franchise, and Luigi’s Mansion 4 will look to continue that reputation.

The series has become a staple of Nintendo’s line-up ever since the Super Mario spin-off games first appeared on the Nintendo Gamecube.

With a huge player base and fans from across several generations of consoles, Nintendo will be hoping that a fourth iteration will be another smash hit for them in future.

Here’s everything you need to know about Luigi’s Mansion 4, including the potential release date, leaks, whether the game is coming to Nintendo Switch and more.

Potential Release Date

We do not currently have a definitive release date for Luigi’s Mansion 4; however, from speculative rumours , it looks as though the game is set for a release around October 2023 .

Interestingly, Nintendo acquired the developer of both Luigi’s Mansion 2 and 3, Next Level Games , earlier this year.

Although that is not a slam dunk indication that the game will be coming, it certainly makes the chances of it much more likely.

We will update this page as and when Nintendo makes the official announcement for the release of Luigi’s Mansion 4!

Read More:  Luigi's Mansion 4: What is the Release Date?

UPDATE 12th January 2022: Not so much a leak, but some great news! You can now get hold of a LEGO version of Luigi's Mansion!

There is currently no information regarding Luigi’s Mansion 4 that has been leaked publicly. Nintendo is usually quite tight-lipped when it comes to new games, and we don’t expect a massive amount to be revealed ahead of the official release of the potential new title.

Nintendo Switch

Whilst we expect that Luigi’s Mansion 4 may be brought out on the Nintendo Switch, there is always a chance that the game could be held off until a new console release.

There is already speculation that the next Mario Kart is being developed for the next Nintendo console release, so the same might be true for Luigi’s Mansion 4.

Hopefully, if Nintendo decides to have Luigi’s Mansion 4 be a Nintendo Switch title, then we can expect to hear about the latest iteration of the series in the next couple of years!

We'll let you know when we have an update!

A Few Sucky Parts

Mario, it turns out, isn’t the only plumber in Nintendo’s employ who can carry his own great game. Luigi’s Mansion 3 is so much fun, so charming, and so smartly designed that, moving forward, I really hope we get more than three of these games every 20 years. It’s absolutely the best Ghostbusters game ever made – it just happens to star Mario’s scaredy-cat brother rather than Peter Venkman and Ray Stantz.

Luigi's Mansion 2 Devs Didn't Actually Know What System They Were Developing For

Posted: January 4, 2024 | Last updated: January 4, 2024

Nintendo can be pretty secretive when it comes to its future plans, a lot more than most other companies in the industry. It supposedly has a brand-new system launching at some point in 2024, but we barely know anything about it besides it's reportedly been shown off behind close doors to a number of developers . In fact, Nintendo is so secretive that it sometimes doesn't even let its own developers know about consoles currently in production.

That's according to Luigi's Mansion 2 artists Gary Shaw and Marc Brassard, who explained in a recent video by DidYouKnowGaming that Nintendo was so secretive that the developers of the game didn't actually know what system they were going to be making Luigi's Mansion 2 for, initially assuming that the title was being made for the original Nintendo DS.

According to the video, several developers were suddenly flown out to Japan one day, after which Satruo Iwata "literally pulled a sheet off a table" to unveil the Nintendo 3DS to them. The team behind Luigi's Mansion 2 grew larger after that, but Nintendo insisted that devs working on the game had to be locked in a secret room with now windows, and were made to "sign piles of confidentiality agreements" and promise not to tell their co-workers.

There was extra high security for that project, and because we were all so close together, and it was so secret, it was kinda fun. - Gary Shaw

While that sounds a little bit extreme, you can slightly understand why Nintendo wanted to maintain secrecy. Luigi's Mansion 2 developer Next Level Games actually wasn't owned by Nintendo during the development of the game, meaning there was a much higher risk of someone coming down with a case of loose lips. Next Level Games' workers weren't technically employed by Nintendo until 2021, after which the studio was purchased following the release of Luigi's Mansion 3.

While this is all pretty interesting info and a rare insight into how game development works at Nintendo, it does make you wonder how locked down certain games are these days if there was a ridiculous amount of secrecy surrounding a handheld Mario spinoff game of all things. You wouldn't be surprised to find out there's a small team of people at Nintendo working on the next 3D Mario in a broom closet in the company HQ's basement.

This info also makes the lack of information we have on the next Nintendo console make a lot more sense. That hasn't stopped industry analysts at taking a crack at what the system is going to be though, with one recent analyst suggesting that it will be an "iteration rather than a revolution", and will more than likely set us back around $400 .

King Boo is back

Luigi realizes he’s caught in a trap—put in motion by Hellen Gravely to impress the ghostly villain King Boo!

The hotel is swarming with ghosts

Can Luigi make it through floor after floor of scary ghosts, spooky puzzles, and terrifying bosses? Maybe! After all, he’s equipped with Professor E. Gadd’s latest ghost-hunting gear.

Eerie music plays. Framed pictures of Toad, Luigi, Mario, and Princess Peach hang above the dark, empty lobby. There is an X drawn over each picture. The camera moves from the lobby to an assortment of themed rooms and areas: a hallway lined with framed paintings and musical instruments behind red ropes; an enormous vine growing in an indoor atrium; a banquet room with a feast; a medieval gate; a hallway filled with ghostly framed pictures; a creepy underground lair; a neon disco; and a pyramid in a desert.
