Luigi’s Memory Lives On in His Greatest Solo Adventure
Mario’s recently deceased younger brother Luigi is bringing his first ghost-hunting adventure to the 3DS in time for the spookiest day of the year!

The original Luigi’s Mansion will come to 3DS on October 12th with a new Gallery battle mode where players can take on previously defeated bosses and will retail for $40 USD. The port is being handled by Grezzo, the team behind the 3DS remakes of N64’s Majora’s Mask and Ocarina of Time, as well as contributing to Triforce Heroes.
If you didn’t get a chance to check out the original Luigi’s Mansion this is a great excuse to do so, as it was one of the Gamecube’s strongest titles and still fetches a high price from time to time on the secondhand market. A sequel, Dark Moon, came to the 3DS as well back in 2013, which was also really good.
Incidentally, Luigi died fighting ghosts in the recent reveal trailer for the Castlevania characters coming to Super Smash Bros Ultimate, in which he becomes that which he sought to destroy.
