Earlier this week, it was announced that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is scheduled to release on Halloween Day. The title is, of course, the third installment in this incredibly fun standalone series that focuses on our not-so-heroic scaredy-cat, Luigi. Have a look below for confirmation of the release date from Nintendo’s official Twitter account.
When Luigi’s friends go missing on vacation, it’s up to our reluctant hero to save them from the ghosts in the Last Resort hotel! Join forces with Gooigi, slam ghosts, & prepare for a spooky treat when #LuigisMansion3 arrives to #NintendoSwitch on 10/31!https://t.co/3fg4O2t6PB pic.twitter.com/iNM9BKNKg5— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) July 17, 2019
Luigi’s Mansion 3 promises to more open-ended in level design than previous installments, also featuring a multitude of different atmospheres and gaming mechanics that are sure to keep things entertaining through and through. There’s also a “ScareScraper” multiplayer mode, which can be played with up to eight players at once.
The plot is fairly straightforward. While on vacation at a luxurious hotel with his pet Polterpup, along with Mario, Princess Peach, and a group of Toads, things go awry when it becomes evident that it was a plot by King Boo to capture his brother and friends all along. Now it’s up to our reluctant hero, with the help of Professor E. Gadd and his Poltergust G-00, to conquer his fears and save the day.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 releases for the Nintendo Switch on October 31st, 2019. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for news regarding this title and so much more!
