At E3 2019, a new Luigi's Mansion 3 trailer gave fans a closeup look at the gameplay and features that they can expect from this forthcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive. Indeed, this trailer confirmed co-op for Luigi's Mansion 3 and more. One thing it did not confirm, however, was the Luigi's Mansion 3 release date, but a leak from Amazon Mexico may have just revealed that detail earlier than was intended.
Specifically, Amazon Mexico has indicated that the Luigi's Mansion 3 release date is set for October 4, 2019. This information not only comes from the game's listing on the Amazon Mexico website, but players that have pre-ordered the title have, reportedly, also received emails from Amazon Mexico listing October 4 as the date for the game's shipment. While this, certainly, should no be considered official confirmation of the release date for Luigi's Mansion 3, Amazon is at least referencing that date consistently.
To note, October 4, 2019 falls on a Friday, a typical day for new video game releases, which gives some credence to the Amazon Mexico leak. Additionally, players have been predicting that Nintendo would push for an October release of Luigi's Mansion 3 in an attempt to align Luigi's next spooky adventure with Halloween. While this may not be the company's exact reasoning, an October launch does seem sensible when considered amidst the stacked Nintendo Switch release schedule for the rest of 2019.
Again, this should not be taken as definitive word on the Luigi's Mansion 3 release date, but if it ultimately proves true, players can expect to get their hands on the game in less than three months. While there is no dearth of exciting games releasing on Switch during that timeframe, including the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening as well as Pokemon Sword & Shield, many fans will certainly be happy to play Luigi's Mansion 3 as soon as possible.
It is also worth mentioning that the Nintendo Switch Lite release date is just two weeks before this purported Luigi's Mansion 3 release date. As such, players the decide to spring for the new Switch hardware may be able to look forward to Luigi's Mansion 3 being one of the first new games that they get to play on it.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 will launch in 2019 for the Nintendo Switch.
