Next Level Games

Almost every 2019 game featured in the E3 Nintendo Direct was given a release date. However, there was one notable exception: Luigi’s Mansion 3. Some fans might be wondering why we haven’t found out when it’s coming out yet.

Speaking with Polygon, Nintendo’s Bill Trinen said that Next Level Games is “putting a lot of care into the game. We want to let them put the care into it they want, so we’re waiting on them to let us know and we’ll solidify the release date.”

Having Luigi’s Mansion 3 ready for Halloween would certainly make a lot of sense. We’ll have to want and see if the next ends up meeting that release window.

At E3 2019, Game Informer asked a few out-of-the-box questions while speaking with Luigi’s Mansion 3 producer Kensuke Tanabe. Tanabe weighed in on whether you can eat Gooigi, if he wants to see Luigi in more games, and if there have ever been any talks about making a Wayoshi (since there is a Wario and a Waluigi). Find these excerpts below.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 had its second appearance on Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2019 with first footage of the ScareScraper mode. View the full recording below.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 had another segment on Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2019 today. The game’s director appeared, and confirmed a noteworthy aspect of the ScareScraper mode. Voice chat will be supported, though it sounds like you’ll need to use the Nintendo Switch Online voice chat app.

Nintendo is back with another video for Luigi’s Mansion 3. Have a look at the “Luigi’s Nightmare” trailer below.

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.”
