Luigi’s Mansion 3 apparently started out as a Wii U project
When it arrives later this year, Luigi’s Mansion 3 will be a Switch game. That apparently wasn’t the original plan, however.
NIntendo’s Kensuke Tanabe indicated during a Nintendo Treehouse: Live segment at E3 today that Luigi’s Mansion 3 was originally a Wii U title. Regarding new moves, he said “these moves actually were something that we came up with when we were working on the Wii U version and something that [Next Level Games] came up with.” He went on to say that “when they made a prototype and let us use slam and burst it was just so satisfying when you played it.”
