Luigi’s Mansion 3 Is Releasing On Halloween

Luigi’s Mansion 3 Is Releasing On Halloween

Just a few days ago, Amazon Mexico seemingly ‘leaked’ the release date for Luigi’s Mansion 3, pegging it at October 4th. While it seemed plausible enough, I was quick to remark, “why not October 31st?”.

Well, it seems like Amazon Mexico was wrong and I was right, because Nintendo have confirmed that the game will be launching this year on October 31st. That’s Halloween for those of you playing at home. It’s perfect.

First announced during a Nintendo Direct last year, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the latest original game in the series since Luigi’s Mansion 2 for the Nintendo 3DS way back in 2013. Also, side note, Wikipedia’s listing for that game contains the words; “Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, known in Australia, Europe and Japan as Luigi’s Mansion 2”. Um, surely if you’re listing one of a total of four regions where the game is named differently that should be the ‘also known as…’ part. Right?

Anyway, mark your calendars, kids! And if you’re a fan of fancy cases, your mates at EB Games have an exclusive SteelBook  case as a preorder bonus (steel-boo-k?), check it:

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the latest trailer for the game from E3 2019:

To recap; Luigi’s Mansion 3 is coming out on Nintendo Switch this Halloween, October 31st. Spooky.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
