Kotaku has shared another round of quotes from the developers of Luigi’s Mansion 3. The site was able to speak with lead producer Kensuke Tanabe, producer Yoshihito Ikebata, and director Bryce Holliday.

During the discussion, the developers weighed in on why there aren’t floor puzzles in the final game, the decision behind not adding an upgrade system, and how the Virtual Boy made it in. They also shared a bit of lore for the main colored ghosts and the classic Boo ghosts we’ve come to know.

You can find excerpts from these topics below. For the full interview, head on over to Kotaku.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is getting DLC, but probably not in the way most would have expected. Two multiplayer parts are planned – the first by the end of April and the second by the end of July. This is somewhat surprising, as Luigi’s Mansion 3 is mainly looked upon fondly for its single-player experience.

In an interview with Kotaku, a few developrers weighed in on why Luigi’s Mansion 3 won’t be seeing any single-player DLC. Creative director Bryce Holliday explained:

Nintendo has issued a new update for Luigi’s Mansion 3. The latest patch is version 1.2.1.

According to Nintendo, the main purpose of the update is to address an issue in which some achievements wouldn’t unlock. There are also the usual vague fixes and improvements.

Nintendo has passed along a few more screenshots from the newly-announced Multiplayer Pack for Luigi’s Mansion 3. Get a look at the images below.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 Multiplayer Pack Part 1 is due out by April 30, 2020. The second part will follow by July 31, 2020. Read more about the DLC in our initial post here.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is selling pretty well in the UK – perhaps better than one would expect. In the previous week, sales were actually up 49 percent.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have been top sellers on Switch during the holiday season. However, Luigi’s Mansion 3 has actually sold more copies than a number of other top titles, including New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Super Mario Maker 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. GamesIndustry also reports that Luigi’s Mansion 3 “has far exceeded previous games in the franchise”.
