As Halloween approaches, Nintendo has put the finishing touches on their latest hit, Luigi’s Mansion 3. If you’ve been following Nintendo’s social media pages, you may have noticed the hard amount of advertising the company has put out for their latest Switch hit.

Compared to the classic GameCube original, the 3DS sequel, or even the 3DS remake, Nintendo appears to be mass-marketing their latest title almost as much as they do with their best-selling Zelda and Mario games. While Luigi’s Mansion in the past never quite hit the top tier status for Nintendo games, the love they’re giving to the game indicates that this could be the best entry in the series yet.

What’s new in Luigi’s Mansion 3?

Unlike the past games, which set the player in a mansion, Luigi’s Mansion 3 takes place inside a hotel. When Luigi receives an invitation, he brings his friends to come along. But that night, everyone disappears and Luigi learns the hotel is full of ghosts!

This won’t be the first time the Mario Bros. have encountered a haunted hotel.

Unlike the past titles, Luigi is not confined to the hotel itself. Within its haunted walls, Luigi will find portals to other themed worlds, such as a casino or a desert. Furthermore, he’ll use new abilities, like Slam, to take down crowds of ghosts!

If you’ve played Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, you may have witnessed Slam already.

Elements from Past Games

Much like its predecessor, Luigi’s Mansion 3 will be developed by Next Level Games; the team known for developing Super Mario Strikers. Despite the 3DS title not having a number in America, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon was indeed called “Luigi’s Mansion 2” in other regions. As a result, Luigi’s Mansion 3 follows the story picked up from the previous title. In this instance, Luigi’s adopted pet from the previous entry, the adorable Polterpup, joins him on this adventure.

Notably, Nintendo released a remake of Luigi’s Mansion for 3DS last year. This version of the game included a slew of changes and improvements from the original GameCube release. Additionally, it introduced Gooigi, a Luigi clone that will aid him in his quest. Plus, you’ll be able to play multiplayer co-op with Gooigi.

As in past games, King Boo has appeared and kidnapped Mario. While this plot may be compared to Peach getting kidnapped in Mario games, Peach herself gotten herself kidnapped too! Now Luigi must save his brother as well as Peach and the Toads!

Like in Super Mario 64, Luigi will explore these new worlds and solve creative puzzles using his new Poltergeist G-00. Furthermore, like Super Mario 64 DS, you will have to rescue Mario and his friends! Whether it was the intention of the developers to base this title on past Mario influences or not, it brings back sound memories either way.

Multiplayer

One of the most exciting things about Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the multiplayer. While Luigi’s Mansion (3DS) invited players to bring a friend for local co-op play, the newest title is set to bring forth new cooperative and competitive modes as well!

ScareScraper

The first featured mode, ScareScraper, invites you to team up with 8 players to catch ghosts. The players will split up and play through different modes in order to accomplish this goal. Note that each dungeon is randomly generated.

ScreamPark

This competitive mode appears to be similar to Mario Party with a haunted twist. ScreamPark features several mini-games to battle it out with friends. As with ScareScraper, both modes feature online multiplayer as well.

Perhaps Nintendo has been taking cues from multiplayer outings with their recent titles. Super Mario Party, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Maker 2, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe all feature strong multiplayer. This might be the time for Luigi’s own game to finally get in on the action!

Conclusion

Luigi’s Mansion on GameCube was a hit that left a lasting impression. The series has appeared in Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. before spawning a sequel for 3DS. Now with Nintendo Switch, they’re bringing back this beloved classic with a bigger adventure than ever before. Plus, you couldn’t ask for a better time to release than Halloween, right?

Luigi’s Mansion 3 releases on Nintendo Switch on October 31st, 2019. If you’re participating in a Halloween party, you couldn’t ask for a better way to celebrate. Plus you’ll get to enjoy it all in the new venue. Welcome to the Hotel Last Resort!
