Not trying to dock the sequel, but I highly doubt it. There's a lot of wonderful things in the original I just don't expect to be replicated this time around. Not necessarily a bad thing, just from what I've seen Next Level Games seems to have taken a slightly different approach with this one.

Hard to tell. Considering there are multiple mansions, I'd say it's possible or even probable in ones with an actual 'house' theme to them and bookcases in at least one room, but unlikely everywhere else.

I have to wonder how the hell you got an F rank. Seems like something you've have to actually try and get.

Then again, what version of the game were you playing? Because the PAL version makes it physically impossible to get an A rank without the hidden mansion and I think increases the number of coins required to get ranks, so maybe it's to do with that.

Care to explain what a PAL version is? I know there's a Mario Tennis Open PAL version, but I don't know what PAL is...

Lol wow... Have ya heard of this called Google? It's very useful to people like you! Sort of shocking that you don't know what PAL is though, seeing as how you're posting on Nintendo Life forums, and Nintendo Life is based in and has main operations in a PAL country. Guess some people just aren't very bright in the head...

I do doubt it'll beat the original, as the original is one of the best games I've ever played, but it still looks awesome and faithful enough that I won't have to fanboy rage.

PAL means a European copy of the game. NTSC is American, and I;m not sure what Japanese is. On every console and game it'll tell you what region it's from and typically you have to match the regions (region-locking). It'd be pretty hard to get the wrong type though because they don't sell PAL copies in America or NTSC copies in Europe. Some slight differences will be noticed in the game, like different voice actors, occasionally some lines and visuals are changed though too do to the culture in the country. I heard somewhere Dark Pit was called Black Pit in Europe but they had to change that for the American release.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Personally, I think it could well beat the original. After all, we don't know what any boss or portrait ghosts are like, what twists and turns the story takes or the designs of later mansions. And the original game certainly wasn't perfect...

Oh, and I'd love if they used this music in some form:

Oh yes it was.

In my opinion at least, I don't care if its short. I wouldn't change anything about the original.

I think not having portrait ghosts is a step back for the series. It was kinda fun finding out small back stories to the portrait ghosts; it gave the game some replay value. (even though most reviews I've seen for LM say there was little to none :l ) There were several ways to do this using the Gameboy Horror, "Bookcase foreshadowing" and sometimes the ghosts would even tell their backstory.
Removing Protrait Ghosts makes me question the depth of this game. Sure the game has also taken a few steps forward by adding more mansion and a couple new abilities to the vaccum (the exact name slips my mined at the moment) but it's kind of challenging to determine which game will out shine the other. Mostly because Nintendo hasnt really explained that much about Dark Moon IMO.

Do we know that there aren't portrait ghosts in this game? For all we know, that boss guy we saw in an early trailer might be one, and others might exist in later mansions.

People don't seem to realise that the length of a game doesn't relate to its quality. A game being short doesn't make it bad - and I'd also prefer a short game that was perfect from start to finish than a longer game that outstayed its welcome. I'm not saying anything about how good Luigi's Mansion is though as I've never played it - but if length is ones only complaint then it's a brilliant game.

Im pretty sure the giant spider in the trailer is a boss But your right, that mummy could be a protrait ghost. Nintendo has kept most of the story a secret but it seems your probably going to obtain the dark moon pieces for E. Gadd. Maybe we will see a couple of bosses/protrait ghosts on the way but it will become less frequent. @CM30
