    Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon Remaster Announced for Switch

    During today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced a “visually enhanced” remaster of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for the Nintendo Switch. This came out of nowhere right after the announcement of the brand-new game starring Princess Peach that is set to launch in 2024! 

    Dark Moon Headed to Switch

    Nintendo has this to say about this exciting upcoming release in their press release:

    A visually enhanced version of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, originally released on Nintendo 3DS, is currently in development for Nintendo Switch. Can Luigi summon the courage to save Evershade Valley? Explore haunted mansions full of spooky specters and bone-chilling challenges next year. More information will be available in the future.

    Dark Moon is a sequel to the Nintendo GameCube’s Luigi’s Mansion. The title was originally released for the 3DS. You can read more about it below:

    Luigi is back on a mission to remove a bunch of stubborn ghosts from some spooky mansions. Armed with his trusty Poltergust ghost-sucking vacuum cleaner, Mario’s brother takes center stage to capture these pesky phantoms.
    • Shining a light on the ghosts is no longer enough to stun them into immobility. Players need to activate a strobe function and release it to stun the ghosts before sucking them up with the Poltergust.
    • Different types of ghosts haunt the different mansions. Luigi must figure out how to defeat each one of them and find hidden secrets to unlock new areas and treasure chests. These new elements add more variety and introduce new puzzle-solving mechanics.
    • Players can use the Poltergust to help Luigi remove wallpaper to reveal hidden areas, clean up piles of treasure-hiding leaves or suck up stacks of coins and bills. But in reality, the nervous and reluctant Luigi just wants to get as far away from these ghosts as possible.
    • The 3D visuals bring the mansions, ghosts and surroundings to life. Players experience all the haunting chills and fun the game has to offer.
    • This game is the first follow-up to the 2001 Nintendo GameCube launch title Luigi’s Mansion.

    More Information to Come Next Year

    The sequel to Dark Moon, LM3, is available on the Nintendo Switch now. More information will release in 2024. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting announcement!
