Mario is king, no doubt ‒ but not in this game. In Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Mario's brother Luigi is the star. And while he might not have the strength and speed of Mario, he sure managed to convince these reviewers that he's really got what it takes.
Poor Luigi, always in Mario's shadow. Even when Luigi set off on his own ghost-wrangling adventure in Luigi's Mansion over a decade ago, it was still as though he was defined by Mario's absence. The game dedicated a whole button to calling out Mario's name!
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and a new Pokemon game lead off this week's list of upcoming Nintendo downloadables.
Nintendo executives have many reasons to keep their games off of iPhones and Androids and to only let them play on Nintendo hardware. But what about the creators of a new Nintendo video game? They've got reasons, too.
Some time during the three-plus years the Nintendo 3DS video game Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon was in development, the game's main development team in Canada received a visit from Shigeru Miyamoto, the lead creator of The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros..
You might think that the difference between Nintendo's famous brothers is that one likes to wear red and the other wears green, or that one of them can sometimes jump a tad higher.
Grab your Gushers, kids. This new commercial for the second Luigi's Mansion—out March 24 for 3DS—feels straight out of 1995. That's not a bad thing, of course. Nothing like some good old 90s nostalgia to brighten up your Friday afternoon.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon comes to the 3DS on March 24, one highlight among several release dates Nintendo announced for its spring lineup this morning.
With the release of the new 3DS XL just a week away, Nintendo releases its massive list of 3DS, DSi and eShop game releases, solidifying a November release for the next installment of Paper Mario, giving Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon a 2013 move-in date, and dropping a few surprises for Nintendo's portable power players.
The 3DS XL is big. And bright. And round. I got my hands on Nintendo's just-announced big-boy version of its 3D handheld at Comic-Con 2012 last week and it's an impressive upscaling of the 3DS experience.
I played Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon yesterday.
Here's some gameplay we shot of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, the sequel to 2001's hit GameCube title, during E3 this week. The controls take a little concentration to master, but so far, Dark Moon seems just as clever and interesting as its predecessor. Check it out!
I still can't believe they're making another Luigi's Mansion game. I mean, I see this trailer, and some part of me acknowledges it, but other parts just laugh and say "right, Luke, and next thing you know they'll make another Pikmin game..."
Once again following in the footsteps of his brother, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon will join New Super Mario Bros. 2 and be available as a fully-downloadable 3DS game when it's released.
