In Nintendo's news stream, Nintendo Direct, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced a new feature to the sequel to the game featuring Mario's brother mostly doing what he does best (screaming in fear); Luigi's Mansion 2.
I played Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon yesterday.
I tried very hard to be spooked out by the ghosts of Luigi's Mansion 2, since the game looks really so nice and smooth— especially given that the game is so early in development. Unfortunately, it just wasn't happening. The new gyroscopic camera, however, seemed to be a great intuitive new feature.
The newly revealed Luigi's Mansion 2 won't be developed internally by Nintendo, but by Canada's Next Level Games, the studio behind the Wii version of Punch-Out!. Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto is supervising the project, however.
Mario's brother gets another chance to shine on the 3DS in Luigi's Mansion 2, with multiple mansions, tons of ghosts, and one sucktacular vacuum cleaner.
