Luigi’s Mansion 3 Switch opens the doors to the world of ghoulish action and ghastly adventures. Developed by Next Level Games, this is the eagerly awaited third installment of what is now a critically successful series, published of course by Nintendo. The game comes solely on Nintendo Switch and it’s launched today, on Halloween!
Suit up and take out the Poltergust G-00, which is Luigi’s trusted weapon against paranormal troublemakers. As the trailer reveals, our favorite plumbers and their friends are invited to spend the Halloween holiday at a too-good-to-be-true luxurious hotel. As soon as the lights go down, paranormal activity is nigh. Mario, Princes Peach, and all the other characters are gone, kidnapped right in front of Luigi’s eyes. They are turned into paintings and sucked into another dimension as it seems.
Luigi musters the courage to launch a rescue mission to find his friends, and he does so armed with his flashlight to stun nasty ghosts and the mentioned Poltergust to trap them, same as in previous installments. The game is played from a 3rd person perspective but as far as visuals go, it is perhaps the most polished title compared to all Mario or Luigi titles on Nintendo Switch so far, looking even better than Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Mario Party.
The game offers two gameplay modes. The single-player adventure familiar gameplay setting, in which you go with Luigi through the floors and rooms of this ghostly hotel. It features 16 floors and each has its atmosphere and theme, as it is traditional in Mario and Luigi games. Each floor also brings different enemies, challenges, and boss ghosts that are all a part of this ghastly conspiracy to kidnap the plumber duo. However, in this third installment, the open-ended feeling is better than ever, and each level feels huge and full of stuff to do. In terms of gameplay content, this title brings exponentially more.
There is also the multiplayer mode which can be played local and online. It enables co-op gameplay through a returning Dark Moon feature – ScareScraper, which is a fan favorite. Next Level Games worked on that title and now they have brought that feature into the new Luigi’s Mansion 3 Nintendo Switch game, just in time for the horror holiday.
