Luigi’s Mansion 3DS amiibo support revealed in new video

Luigi's Mansion 3DS

Luigi’s Mansion 3DS will be launching for Nintendo’s handheld console later this month. The new version is a remake of the iconic GameCube game. Luigi’s Mansion sees the titular hero trying to save Mario from malevolent ghosts in a mansion he won in a contest. The 2018 version of Luigi’s Mansion will feature amiibo support.

In a video published by GameXplain, the four amiibo used in the game have been revealed; Toad, Mario, Luigi, and Boo. You can watch the video below and also read about what each amiibo will do in the game.

  • Boo – “Now the map will show the locations of up to three Boos in the mansion that have escaped capture.”
  • Toad – “You can now talk to Toad to have your Health restored!”
  • Mario – “The Poison Mushrooms in the mansion have transformed into Super Mushrooms! Grab one, and your Health will recover.
  • Luigi – “You’ve now got a chance to revive if your Health reaches zero in the mansion. Also, the furniture a Speedy Spirit is hiding in will light up!”

Last month, Nintendo confirmed during a direct that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is in development for Nintendo Switch. For those that don’t have a GameCube, it will be easy to catch up on the franchise once Luigi’s Mansion launches for 3DS on October 12th. In addition to the upcoming remake, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, the sequel to the hit game is also on the 3DS. Playing through both of these games will have you prepared before the third installment hits store shelves.

After almost 2 decades, Luigi's iconic adventure can be experienced once again on 3DS.
The titular hero returns to the mansion 17 years later in Luigi’s Mansion 3DS.
