E3: Luigi’s Mansion 2 – New Details and Screens

E3: Luigi’s Mansion 2 – New Details and Screens

In case you can’t tell, I’m really excited about Luigi’s Mansion 2, which was revealed for 3DS yesterday at Nintendo’s press conference. We now have some new screenshots and information on the game, which you’ll find below.

According to Nintendo, the game offers several features, including:

• Shining a light on the ghosts is no longer enough to stun them into immobility. Players
need to activate a strobe function and release it to stun the ghosts before sucking them
up with the Poltergust.
• Different types of ghosts haunt the different mansions. Luigi must figure out how to defeat
each one of them and find hidden secrets to unlock new areas and treasure chests.
These new elements add more variety and introduce new puzzle-solving mechanics.
• Players can use the Poltergust to help Luigi remove wallpaper to reveal hidden areas,
clean up piles of treasure-hiding leaves or suck up stacks of coins and bills. But in reality,
the nervous and reluctant Luigi just wants to get as far away from these ghosts as
possible.
• The 3D visuals bring the mansions, ghosts and surroundings to life. Players experience
all the haunting chills and fun the game has to offer.
• This game is the first follow-up to the 2001 Nintendo GameCube™ launch title Luigi’s
Mansion™.

You can check out the trailer again in case you missed it, below:

Nintendo has not given an indication of when we can expect Luigi’s Mansion 2 to release, but I’m hopeful we won’t have too long of a wait, as it’s expected to arrive some time in 2012.
