Back in March, Nintendo announced that a remake of Luigi’s Mansion will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS in their Direct. E3 2018 came and left and there was still no signs of a release date for the fan favorite game. Well, that has now changed because we finally have a release date! Luigi’s Mansion will be released on October 12, 2018, in North America and October 19, 2018, in Europe.
The original game came out in 2001 for the Nintendo GameCube and quickly became a cult favorite. For the 3DS remake, there has been one major change – a map of the mansion will be displayed on the bottom screen to help guide players through the mansion. A sequel titled Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon was released 12 years later for the 3DS to many fans’ excitement. Since then, there was no news of a new Luigi’s Mansion until the remake for the first game was announced this year.
I’ve heard so many great things about Luigi’s Mansion that I don’t know why I haven’t played it yet. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play a game starring Luigi instead of Mario?! On top of that, Luigi uses a vacuum cleaner to fight the various ghosts in the mansion while he searches for Mario! Who doesn’t love that?! Thankfully, that will be remedied on October 12th when I pick up the game for the 3DS.
