You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. Well, at least not for a few more months.
We thoroughly enjoyed Luigi’s Mansion 3 when we went hands-on at E3 2019. We also enjoyed the life-sized Gooigi and the impressive haunted hotel set Nintendo had built, but the vertical slice of game – from beginner’s tutorial to first boss – was vintage Luigi’s Mansion.
There are new tricks and gameplay elements, including the aforementioned Gooigi and new hotel setting, but Luigi’s Mansion 3 feels like a comfy pair of complimentary hotel slippers.
But Nintendo would like to remind you that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is scary. Scooby-Doo-esque, kid-friendly scary, but scary all the same. And to do that, it will release Luigi’s Mansion 3 on the scariest day of the year: October 31, 2019.
That’s a global release date, and Luigi’s Mansion 3 will be available on Nintendo Switch in both boxed retail and digital download variants. Just don’t look at the hotel’s rating on Trip Advisor.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
