Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon's release is now around two weeks away for both North America and Europe, a long-awaited sequel to the GameCube launch title. As well as featuring an all-new adventure with the under-appreciated brother, it'll include local and online multiplayer, an extra mode that was kept under wraps for the majority of the title's development time.

While we're busy preparing our review to tell you exactly what we think, below is a video published last week by Nintendo of America that shows off the ScareScraper multiplayer mode. Three members of staff team up with a mystery online friend — guess who — and look through the options before giving a demo of the co-op play in practice.

In typical Nintendo style it looks like the kind of mode that's a lot more fun when in the same room with others, but nevertheless the inclusion of online play is welcome. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
