Luigi’s Mansion 3’s Poltergust Has a Bunch of New Functions

Luigi’s Mansion 3 Is Still Slated For 2019

Correction (6/12/2019): This Luigi’s Mansion 3 news article previously reported that the ScareScraper mode was a new mode. This was incorrect and the mode was actually introduced in the previous entry in the series, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.

Original Story:

Luigi’s Mansion 3 didn’t get a release date revealed during Nintendo’s E3 Direct on Tuesday but details were given about the new functions of Luigi’s Poltergust G-00 and a returning co-op mode.

Here’s a rundown of the Poltergust’s new mechanics:

  • Slam: The Poltergust’s suction grabs ghosts and slams them onto the ground.
  • Suction Shot: It can be used to destroy objects in the game world and it’s useful against certain enemy types such as ones who wield shields.
  • Burst: Causes a massive gust of air pressure; basically an “area of effect” attack.
  • Gooigi: a green goo version of Luigi that helps out with puzzles but can be killed if touched by water; used for local co-op.

The E3 Direct also revealed that ScareScraper mode has returned. ScareScraper mode is a player local/online co-op mode that supports up to eight players. The mode has players fighting ghosts, finding Toads, and completing other challenges.
