Luigi's Mansion 3 Gets An Update Alongside Multiplayer DLC
Nothing spookier than disco.
Nintendo Switch exclusive Luigi’s Mansion 3 has just gotten two big updates on the Nintendo Eshop. Along with the release of the multiplayer DLC, some substantial features have been added to the game for everyone.
This is the first of two planned DLC multiplayer packs for Luigi's Mansion 3, and it adds three new costumes that Luigi can wear in the ScareScraper mode. Three matching spooky themes will randomly transform the tower’s floors, along with five new themed ghost encounters. These themes ghosts will only appear when Luigi wears one of the new costumes, along with the floor changing themes.
Three new games have been added to ScreamPark as part of the DLC: Dodgebrawl, River Band, and Tricky Ghost Hunt. All Screampark modes can now be played with just one player in practice mode, regardless of whether you have the DLC or not. An Album mode has also been added to the main menu, where players can listen to the game’s soundtrack.
The second part of the multiplayer DLC Pack will be released at the end of July, adding additional game modes and outfits. You can purchase the DLC Park for $9.99 on the Nintendo Eshop. Once purchased, you will receive an in-game Polterpup light called the ‘Flashlight Type-P” that can used in Story Mode or ScareScraper
Patch 1.3.0 is required to unlock the new multiplayer content. This patch also adds some new features, along with a number of fixes made to the single player campaign. The patch can be downloaded without purchasing the DLC Pack on the Nintendo Eshop.
An all new 20-floor option has been added to the ScareScraper game mode, this new mode does not require the new DLC Pack to play, instead it is included in the 1.3.0 patch.
Some bugs in the game's story mode have been fixed as well. Here are the patch notes:
- Fixed an issue that prevented Luigi from moving near the door when capturing a Boo in the hallway of the Hotel Shops.
- Fixed an issue that prevented Luigi from moving behind a bench in Studio 3 of Paranormal Productions.
- Fixed an issue that prevented the game from progressing after touching the shark fin on the beach of The Spectral Catch.
- Fixed several issues to improve gameplay experience.
General fixes to improve the overall gameplay experience have also been implemented, however, the patch does not go into detail about what these improvements are. This comes on the heels of the latest Nintendo Switch update as the system celebrates its third anniversary.
