Luigi's Mansion Remake Announced For 3DS In Nintendo Direct

The GameCube classic comes to 3DS.


The classic GameCube title Luigi's Mansion is being released on 3DS this year. It was one of the few surprise 3DS games that Nintendo revealed during today's Direct presentation.

Luigi's Mansion was originally released alongside the GameCube in 2001. Unlike a traditional Mario title, players take control of Luigi, who must investigate a haunted mansion to rescue Mario from the ghosts that inhabit it. Rather than jump on foes, Luigi is armed with a vacuum-like device called the Poltergust 3000, which he must use to suck up ghosts.
