Luigi’s Mansion 3 overview trailer: spooks and hype galore

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is just under a week away, and the Nintendo UK YouTube channel is marking the occasion with a new overview trailer. While a lot of the nearly six-minute-long video merely recaps what we already know about the game, it’s worth a watch regardless to make sure you are all caught up on the game’s vacation premise, Luigi’s new abilities, and the various multiplayer modes. Plus, it’s a great hype builder.

Poised to innovate the series in all sorts of ways, Luigi’s Mansion 3 looks set to bring the franchise back to a more immersive, personable grounding while pushing the bill further with Dark Moon‘s gameplay enhancements and multiplayer suite. I am extremely excited for the return of portrait ghosts, and while taking a few hours in the afternoon to lazily run through the original Luigi‘s Mansion never gets old, I’m looking forward to a much longer adventure in I. I also absolutely cannot wait to jump into the ScareScraper with some friends, especially after how surprisingly fun the mode was in Dark Moon. Floor after floor of extra challenging, cooperative ghostbusting with your buddies makes for a great time.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 should continue the Switch’s fantastic run of 2019 exclusives. The game will be joining Yoshi’s Crafted WorldThe Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Super Mario Maker 2, Astral Chain, and plenty more.

Will you be picking up Luigi’s Mansion 3, or are you already too backed up on this year’s great Switch releases? Let us know your plans in the comments.
