Nintendo has announced that Switch exclusive Luigi’s Mansion 3 will launch on October 31st.
Given that the action-adventure game’s focuses on Luigi conquering his fears and capturing ghosts in a spooky hotel, the Halloween launch date is particularly appropriate.
When Luigi’s friends go missing on vacation, it’s up to our reluctant hero to save them from the ghosts in the Last Resort hotel! Join forces with Gooigi, slam ghosts, and prepare for a spooky treat when #LuigisMansion3 arrives to #NintendoSwitch on 10/31!https://t.co/gaPbo1uXjj pic.twitter.com/eIIzFxncOh

Notably, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is being developed by Vancouver-based Next Level Games, which also worked on the second Luigi’s Mansion game, the 2013 Nintendo 3DS exclusive Dark Moon.
In Luigi’s Mansion 3, the titular hero goes on a dream vacation to a luxurious hotel with Mario and friends. However, the villainous King Boo reveals that this has been a trick to capture Mario and friends, forcing Luigi to step up and save them.
This time around, Luigi has an upgraded Poltergust G-00 gun to offer him new moves like Slam, Suction Shot and Burst. Meanwhile, returning ally Professor E. Gadd has given Luigi an all-green doppelganger called Gooigi, which will help the timid plumber navigate dangerous areas.
A friend can hop in the game to play as Gooigi at any time. Meanwhile, up to eight people can play online in the ScareScraper mode, which features time-based challenges across a series of floors.
