There was a trailer for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon shown at the Software Showcase event, which is also available via the eShop. But now you can also check it out after the break.
Hope the game support Streetpass!
How you dare question Konata?
I think that is the most pointless feature on the 3DS, I rarely cross someone with a 3DS, let along the same game as me.
Not true I live in NYC and I pass by a bunch of people everyday. I’m on the first floor of my building so just leaving my 3DS near the window I get streetpasses from people outside my window
I streetpass people all the time, then again I work in a movie theater. (Also two of my brothers have one.)
I’d Rather It Have Spotpass
Why are you questioning why animejony wants support for a feature on this game?
I hope this game supports vibrator.
The vibration on the controller is central to the gameplay of the original GC version.
The 3DS doesn’t have any vibrations thingie. Derp
ok wait hold on
theres going to be 2 luigi mansion games? Because luigi’s mansion 2 then this one?
This game IS Luigi’s Mansion 2. They renamed it.
oh ok, still waiting to get NSMB2 for 3ds. Cant wait but not going to watch all the gameplay of the game BEFORE getting it like with NSMB wii. I felt sad when i got the game because i already knew what to do in each level, not watching gameplay again.
back on topic, im not sure if i should get this game. I didnt play a lot of games when i was little, and i didnt play the other luigi’s mansion. Any details on the game about what you do and suff?
I LOVEEEE SPOILERS
I wonder why they renamed it… Could they be using the “2″ subtitle for something else? A Wii U game perhaps? Or maybe they don’t want to alienate players who haven’t tried the first game yet.
Well, I can’t say for sure if this game will give any spoilers for the other game. Luigi’s Mansion didn’t have a very large story to begin with. The main thing about Luigi’s Mansion that I enjoyed was the fact that most things in the environment reacted to the vacuum.
(going to get bombed for this) Why is everyone so exited about this game? i don’t get it. What happened to the old luigi’s mansion? sure, i like the new luigi concepts like the flashlight powers and the multiple mansions, but where are the painting ghosts? and the puzzles? there’s nothing to figure out! All the ghosts have no ‘special’ way to be defeated. My opinion of battle (and thats EVERY battle): Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! Ding! Shwoomp! it gets a little too repetitive. Plus, i dont see one single boo in this game. Is this luigi’s mansion, or some third party ghost catching game? Kill me with negitive comments and “thumbs down” if you must, but think about it, what is this game compared to the original?
Cue the bombing
I find this game funnier than the first one.
That’s the old WEEGEE”S MANCION
Y U NINTENDO CANCELED IT?!?!?!?
Judging a whole game based on a trailer? No, that’s totally not stupid. Let’s all forget that King Boo has been confirmed to be in the game, meaning that there might be Boos.
Let’s all pretend that the whole game has been shown and that there will be spoilers in all trailers!
One of the selling points of Luigi’s Mansion for me isn’t really all that stuff you mentioned (well, except the puzzles which are in this game as well) but the way you interact with your environment in the game. They kept that in there, and I know I’ll be messing with everything when I get the game.
I’m sure there will be boss ghosts that have personalities like the first one, the pairing story was part of the original and this one will have a different story. King boo has been confirmed for this game so I assume the other boos will be in it. As for the puzzles and special ghosts, it’s a trailer, they don’t want to show spoilers.
Way to judge a game based solely on it’s trailer. We have no idea what’s actually in the whole game.
You got a source for that? I don’t recall ever hearing that.
There is artwork of luigi and king boo for the game….so he is basically confirmed to be somehow in it…
I don’t really need a source when you can see how the demo of the game was like. Even in the trailer you can see puzzle-like stuff such as with the cake.
I Have to agree with you a bit there, this seems more like a mission related game where you go in do a simple task and then you move to the next mansion, I am a bit disappointed with the lack of painting ghosts aswell, but the puzzles are a good idea.. Still will be picking this up day one!
look the only thing this game doesnt have from the original is how dark it was, other than that, they are seriously the same concept, this one just add more to what we already loved from the original, also boos are coming back and in the trailer you can see there are puzzles still
i do admit i dont like the dark tone from the original being turned down a little, but still, this game looks really good
This is similar as the original, there’s a number of mansions and E Gadd will direct you on his ‘missions’. Instead of just shining a light on a ghost to suck it up, you need to time when you strobe it, when it’s vulnerable. There is still keys to collect to open up more of the mansions, like in Luigi’s Mansion and we’ve seen King Boo on artwork, so it’s likely that Boo’s will make an appearance too. As for Painting Ghosts, there will probably be some kind of boss at the end of E Gadd’s missions, whether Gadd wants to hang them on his wall though is another thing.
yep because youve played the full game right
Mama Luigi’s Mansion: Dark of the Moon… Directed by Michael Bay
what’s wrong with michea bay?
Michael Bay is a fucking shitty movie guy who makes horrible movies that smell like ass. THAT’s what’s fucking wrong with him.
@Ness, I Kinda Liked Transformers (All 3)
Well, Micheal Bay knows how to make action scenes.
@ness i understand you are mad because you have been forgotten by nintendo, but seriously there is no need to insult michael bay because of that, he is pretty good, he just makes mistakes often
I have literally never been more excited for a game in my life.
i want this game NOW!!
i honestly just come here for Animal Crossing Jump Out news :/
And you honestly need to post that on a trailer for a luigi game?
Havent Paper Mario, Luigi’s Mansion, & Animal Crossing Been In Development Since 2010? Animal Crossing Is Coming This Year Anyways
I doubt you’re gonna find any news on a luigis mansion article
dont get me wrong, but i seriously doubt we are gonna get animal crossing this year, so just deal with it and enjoy the great lineup of games we have coming this last 6 months :D
@the psvita is better
In a previous Nintendo Direct they confirmed it will come out this year in autumn.
@Angelo: That was for Japan only. There is (to my knowledge) no English date/time frame yet. It not being at E3 indicates 2013 to me. I’d love to be wrong, though.
This game has terrible Anti-Aliasing.
It doesn’t have antialiasing at all. Hence the aliasing you see.
Agreed! Omg, grab your pitchforks and lets his Kyoto.
In all seriousness, this game is coming across bad on the aliasing front in videos and screenshots. But so do most 3DS Games, Kid Icarus looked bad in screenshots but is fine when you play it.
Can’t tell anything about gameplay, but the eshop trailer is proof enough that the game is beautiful.
^I mean, if u watch it on your 3DS.
I really like how the music tenses up as time passes.
I love the old tune I hope it isnt gone…
Which old tune: From Luigi’s Mansion or the onee from the last downloadable trailer?
Look up the Luigi’s Mansion trailer from the 2011 TGS. In some gameplay videos the old theme is used for E.Gadd’s lab.
@gila monster. yeah but that remix sucks ass, i want the original one in the game
I like the remix. It makes Gadd seem like a badass, especially when he does his mad scientist laugh while spinning in his swivel chair.
Nintendo almost never just reuses a song without changing it somehow. That’s one area where they refuse to be lazy.
If only you could get rid of trolls as easily as luigi geets rid of ghosts.
1:31 – 1:40 That little tune sure is catchy…and that elevator scene was funny yet scary cause that could happen in real life :P
Any solid release date for this yet? Can’t wait for it!
not exactly soild, but confirmed for “Holiday season” along with Paper Mario Sticker Star, so wait for it in November-December
Yes you can ;P lol
Real or Fake Zelda game
gonna get luigi’s mansion :DKH
i meant that wouldnt the zelda game be cool didnt read the title
this game looks great in 3d. this holiday is going to be awesome once again
Its cool that the Wii U is lauching on holiday season
Hi David T, I can’t find this trailer nor the other one you mentioned in the eShop. I live in the UK. Do you know why?
Not available in UK I guess.
The E3 trailers are currantly only availible in America. Sucks for everyone else >:(
I mean, how hard is it to upload a few trailers?
EXACTLY!! how hard can it be ffs!
Is it just me or are the graphics just… “meh”? The general art direction and execution seems so bland and uninspired. Granted, they set the bar high with 3D Land, so I might be a tad bit spoiled.
I think it wasn’t meant to be super pretty
i think this game looks better than sm3dl, but you know i am starting to wonder how powerful the 3ds.
I’m looking forward to this game, it looks good & I did enjoy the original on the gamecube, this game will last longer that the original as well with 4mansions in, although I didin’t have a problem at all with the gamecube version as it was still a fun game, short but alot of fun.
Elevator opens* Oh neat Walks in* Pretty old.
Presses button* still working
few seconds later* this is nic- WATAFUUUU!
I can’t wait! it looks like a lot of fun
Nintendo emailed me back about Animal Crossing Jump Out :)))))) idk if itll be approved but i posted the email
What Did They Say?
The guy said that hes not sure when they can announce more info but he said “its coming out sooner than we think”
check on the page about the 3DS games coming out in 2012 spoo before the end of the year David accepted it its up on there
The GC version was fun this should be better hope Mario’s in it even though it is Luigi’s own game :D
Sexy with a Capital L!
Nintendo if you ever delay this game…I’ll still buy it but play it with a frowny face!
People Dont Understand That Delays Are A Good Thing
Yes, Duke was a good example…and rayman….and MGS 3D…should I go on?
People Don’t Understand that Delays are NOT Always a good thing, most of the time it’s PR, Legal issues and time of release (aka, you don’t want to release a game around COD launch or other big titles, you look for a window with no Competition).
There are MANY reasons…I gaurantee you most companies don’t delay to fix a game, unless the game is unplayable or completely broken…they fix it through patching…Skyrim any1?
Ok :) Glad I can educate u!
Even though I agree with that, Theo, Heroes of Ruin was delayed for fixes and tweaks. The PR and legal stuff is what made Heroes of Ruin come 1 month after Europe’s though.
