About the game
In the Luigi’s Mansion game, a Nintendo 3DS remake of the spooky Nintendo GameCube game, Luigi must enter a sprawling mansion equipped with nothing but his trusty flashlight and Poltergust 3000, a vacuum-like contraption used to capture ghosts, find treasure and solve puzzles.
This is the first time the Nintendo GameCube classic can be played on the go. This updated version of the game includes the same classic adventure, but with some added features perfect for Nintendo’s popular portable systems. Using the bottom touch screen on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, players can view the mansion map.
In the new Gallery Battle Mode, exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, Luigi will have the ability to re-challenge boss ghosts that were defeated in the game.
- Save Mario for a change: overcome ghastly ghosts, mind-melting puzzles, and Luigi’s own clumsiness
- Challenge bosses to rematches and see if you can up your score in the new Gallery Battle Mode
- Survey the mansion map, track down ghostly Boos, and pinpoint ghosts’ weak points with the Game Boy Horror
- Elemental medals enable the Poltergust 3000 to blow fire or shoot water to beat puzzles and ghosts
Luigi’s Mansion will launch for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
