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.
