E3 2012: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Shots and Details

Posted by James Newton


Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is finally coming to 3DS this holiday season, and while there's no new trailer to share with you we do have some new screenshots and details to share with you.

There'll be multiple mansions to explore, each with unique ghosts and puzzles to solve. It's out for 3DS before Christmas.

Ghostly Adventures Await in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

The new Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon gives players multiple mansions to explore, a variety of puzzles to solve and new ghosts to capture. Armed with the Poltergust 5000, a ghost-sucking, vacuum-like invention, Luigi must complete a number of missions assigned to him by Professor E. Gadd.


Shining a light on the ghosts is no longer enough to stun them into immobility. Players need to activate a new strobe function to stun the ghosts before sucking them up with the Poltergust 5000.

Every mansion is filled with unique puzzle elements and ghosts. Players must figure out how to defeat each one of them and find hidden clues and keys to unlock new areas.

Though it would have been more appropriate as a Halloween launch, I think the extra time will be worth it for the polish.

This looks great. Unlike other 3DS games - it really looks like it's pushing itself, and I'll most likely be getting this.

It's nice, but it should have stuck with Luigi's Mansion 2. The new title doesn't sound Luigi enough.

I like the new subtitle, and while a Halloween release would've been cool, I think a Christmas season launch should make sure that the game is polished as well as it can be.

Not really much new there, but I don't think we really need to know much more.
Will definitely be picking it up day one, the first one was great fun.

I hope this out by Halloween, but at the latest November would be fine. In December the game just wouldn't feel spooky enough for my taste's.

If the moon is dark, we can't see it anymore! I'm joking! Good name for the second Luigi's Mansion!
