After his role in Super Mario Odyssey, it’s Luigi’s turn to hog the spotlight for Nintendo’s platforms. Along with announcing Luigi’s Mansion 3 for the Nintendo Switch, which releases in 2019, a release date for the upcoming remake of the original Luigi’s Mansion for the 3DS was confirmed not too long ago. To better understand how it plays, check out the latest trailer below.
Luigi’s Mansion first released in 2001 for the Nintendo GameCube and is what introduced several series mainstays like Professor E. Gadd, the Poltergust 3000 and whatnot. In the 3DS remake, players will still have to navigate a creepy mansion to save Mario. However, there’s now an in-game map that can be seen on the touchscreen. A boss rush mode will also be added for the sake of additional content.
Considering how much criticism the original release got for its length and controls, one has to wonder if Nintendo will address these issues in the remake. That said, the game does remain a fan favourite, so there’s plenty to look forward to. Luigi’s Mansion arrives for the Nintendo 3DS on October 12th in North America and October 19th in Europe.
