Luigi’s Mansion 3 Reveals Spooky New Gameplay And Details (VIDEO)
After the game’s reveal last year, fans have been itching to scare up more information regarding Luigi’s Mansion 3, the game having remained eerily absent in the months since. A proper showcase for the ghost-busting adventure was finally teased to be at E3 2019, and the spooky new gameplay didn’t disappoint, revealing several phantasmic details about the game’s release for the Nintendo Switch.
As revealed in some newly-debuted gameplay, Mario’s green-clad kin is setting out on another supernatural haunting after Mario, Peach, the Toads, and even the lovable Polterpup go missing in decidedly creepy hotel. To ensure his vacation getaway, Luigi is tasked with saving the day once more, getting his buddies back from otherworldly forces, and utilizing a trusty new ghost-capturing vacuum dubbed the “Poltergust G-00.”
This new Poltergust model allows for multiple new abilities outside just nabbing ghoulish specters, including a nifty Slam attack, a plunger-firing Suction Shot, as well as an enemy-sweeping shockwave called Burst. However, the most notable of these additions is its ability to spawn a gooey green clone humorously called “Gooigi.” More than just a seeming Flubber double, Gooigi allows players to maneuver between obstacles where Luigi couldn’t normally tread, also granting an extra hand (via local co-op) in especially demanding situations.
Multiplayer is set to return in other ways as well, Luigi’s Mansion 3 marking the return of ScareScraper mode from Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. This new iteration touts up to four simultaneous players, local or online, giving an array of time-based challenges for teams of Luigis to accomplish. These L-hatted quartets have the additional capacity to double-up, each player able to summon their own color-coordinated Gooigi to further aid in these team-based efforts. Check Nintendo’s extended gameplay showcase in the video below.
All these details are undoubtedly exciting for fans of the series, the implementation of features such the returning ScareScraper and the ectoplasmic absurdity of Gooigi being a few of most prominent highlights. All while a great amount of the game has been unveiled, an official release date was not among them, though Luigi’s Mansion 3 is still confirmed for release by the end of 2019.
