Nintendo Lists Two-Player Mode for Luigi's Mansion 2

Posted by James Newton

Update: no multiplayer

Update: Nintendo of Europe has clarified that Luigi's Mansion 2 is not multiplayer, and that the game's information was updated incorrectly. Our original story continues below.

We're all looking forward to the opportunity to bust ghosts in Luigi's Mansion 2, but we may not need to do it alone, as the game's official information page lists a multiplayer option.

Luigi's Mansion 2 at Nintendo Europe lists it as a one or two-player game, though there's no further information about how the multiplayer would work.

We played the game after E3 and very much enjoyed it, as our Luigi's Mansion 2 preview details.

Well, that's interesting.
Would like to hear more about this two player mode.

I loved Luigi's Mansion and can't wait for this one.
I'm sure it's going to be amazing.
Hopefully a lot longer than the original!

extreme gardening
pillowfights to the max

there's lots of things to do in a big mansion with a friend and 2 vacuum cleaners

Mario as P2 is genius. There's no reason why they shouldn't do that - it will boost sales. This gotta to be the most anticipated game of 2012 together with Kid Icarus and RE:Revelations. Three AAA games. What else are they planning? Nintendo needs more news of games and NoA needs to at least announce the RPG's for the Wii. And more Wii U news and a release date....

It could be a mistake. Nintendo makes those sometimes even when listing features for their own games. Another possibility is that it's a StreetPass feature. Also why only two players? That doesn't sound very exciting.

Dont get your hopes too high. The multiplayer probably wont include simple 2 player mansion exploring as much as standard minigames or small playing challenges. I'm just making a prediction, but who knows - maybe we'll get a full game playable with another person!

Wonder if they pull a mario and after beating the game we get a Mario's mansion mode.



Teh-Ray said:

I'm with Geonjaha on this one, if anything, it might also be something along the lines of the Luma player in Super Mario Galaxy.

If it is going to be exploring, though, I have to wonder if it's multi-card or not. I can't wait to hear more!

i'm predicting that player 2 could either be mario or even toad. mario especially and for his brother, luigi to take the spotlight for a change-yet for mario to still play an important role in the game.

would be nice to play as toad in a game like this and not just in the mario kart, mario party games.



NintyMan said:

That's a neat surprise, but I would have to wait and see if this doesn't turn out to be something like the luma in Super Mario Galaxy 2. If it really is a second player, than I would be interested to see how two 3DSs could have the connection to keep two players in one mansion together. As far as players, E. Gadd and Toad would be the most sensible characters because Mario is probably kidnapped again, but I could be wrong too.

Waluigi would be a great P2, but it would be great to see Mario as the forced P2. @pikky They won't do online, Nintendo is a kind of sit down TOGETHER company.

lol mario as P2 for once
bustin ghosts with a friend (ONLINE, LOCAL OR DOWNLOAD PLEASE!) would be awesome!

@12 A crowded mansion isn't nearly as scary as when there are only two of you :3



Thwiidscube said:

Sounds pretty cool, as the original Luigi's Mansion wasn't multiplayer! Although P2 could steal treasure you found before you got it....



milkman12 said:

it all depends on the princess in this game. if its mario then theres a chance waluigi is the second player. if its a different prisoner, then its probobly mario.

I'm with Geonjaha (14.) and Teh-Ray (16.) here in thinking it will be nothing like the single player experience.
But if they really make something comparable i hope it will have online since i don't think playing together locally does capture the atmosphere very well. It would be different on a home console though and as always i'll gladly admit that i'm wrong if you surprise me, Ninty.
And i don't want Mario to be the playable second character. He would either steal the show or seem tacked on. Luigi deserves to shine so bring on Daisy.
