Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Scares Its Way Onto The 3DS March 24th

Posted by Orla Madden

A new spooky adventure

Nintendo of America has announced the much anticipated release date for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon will make its way across the US on 24th March, with Luigi travelling through more mansions and scooping up some more ghosts with his upgraded Poltergust 5000. Hopefully European gamers won't have much longer to wait for the title.

While you're waiting, why not read our preview in the meantime?

We can't wait to get our hands on this game, what about you? Will you be saving up your pennies for Luigi's next ghost hunt?

I thought this was set to Feb? Oh well. Been looking for this game for years! Too bad it's on the handheld instead of big screen but this will work!

Just watched a video and discovered this game isn't a 2D side-scroller. And was playing Paper Mario Sticker Star on my sons 3DS and that wasn't 2D. And Kid Icarus was a great game in single and multiplayer.

And the Wii U gets another round of 2D NSMB. I tell you something ain't right at Nintendo HQ.

Sweet Jesus...
Well, only time will tell if I'm getting this day one - depends on how much extra money I'll have. That and the rest of the world is against me getting even a part-time job, so that's a factor too.

So, Nintendo, now your saying that instead of the 40$ I need to save up for by March 24th for Pokemanz Mystery Dungeon, I now have to find 80$ INSTEAD CUZ LUIGI'S MANSION DARK MOON LOOKS SO DANG GOOD?
It's time to get some allowance advancements.

Well...looks like March 24th is going to be quite expensive for me and my poor 3DS. Definitely needs a new battery...soon.

It's about time that LM:DM got a solid release date. This game has been on my wishlist for months now. It's also a good thing that I still have my Gamestop giftcard from Christmas. I may not go broke after all!

Apart from Luigi's Mansion being a fun game, I remember associating it with the joy of obtaining a new console. It was the first game I remember seeing a demo of when the "Dolphin" was in the works, and then I remember it being one of the first games I played on the after-named Gamecube. Can't wait for the much awaited sequel. :D
