The last E3 showcase left for this year is Nintendo’s E3 Direct, which revealed and gave updates to a number of games coming to the Switch. One such game was Luigi’s Mansion 3.
During the E3 Direct presentation, more information was given about the upcoming Luigi’s Mansion 3, which appears to be the game’s official title now, after it was revealed as just a working title earlier. In this new game, Luigi checks into a hotel with Mario, Peach, and some Toads, but, of course, the hotel is haunted and all of Luigi’s friends get captured and turned into portraits by Boos.
Luigi’s new tool this time around is the Poltergust G-00, which adds some more functionality to Luigi’s trusty vacuum-weapon. Some new functions of the Poltergust G-00 include Slam, which lets you slam ghosts on the ground to make them easier to suck up, the Suction Shot, which lets you shoot a plunger at objects to pull and destroy them, and Burst, which shoots a burst of air at the ground that pushes away ghosts and lets Luigi jump.
Gooigi also returns in Luigi’s Mansion 3, and this time is able to perform different functions from normal Luigi. For example, Gooigi will be able to slip through bars and spikes that Luigi can’t get through. However, Gooigi does have a weakness – he doesn’t do well in areas with water, as he’ll get washed away. Players will be able to switch back and forth between Luigi and Gooigi at will. The new game will also have a multi-player mode called the ScareScraper, which will allow for up to eight-player co-op, with each player controlling a Luigi or Gooigi.
Unfortunately, one piece of information we didn’t get was a release date, as Luigi’s Mansion 3 is still slated for a vague 2019 release window.
