The latest Nintendo Direct gave viewers an update on Luigi's Mansion 3, revealing a new party mode. A few new floors of the haunted hotel Luigi will be ascending were previewed during the event as well.
It has been a little under a year since a Nintendo Direct kicked off by announcing Luigi's Mansion 3 with a short preview of what the game will look like. It wasn't until later that Nintendo went into depth, revealing the game would take place inside a haunted hotel filled with numerous frightening floors for Luigi to explore.
Now, players know a great deal more about the title, including the many wacky floors of the hotel. There are plenty more to reveal, however, which is what a portion of this latest Nintendo Direct was dedicated to today. With its release right around the corner, the time is ripe to show off what else Luigi's Mansion 3 has to offer. The Direct previewed a few new floors no one has seen before, which surely raised the spirits of those waiting for its release.
First up is Tomb Suites, an Egyptian-themed area that will put Luigi's Poltergust to work; he will find himself inside a pyramid covered in sand that he will need to clear away. The video shows that most of the action takes place inside this ancient tomb. As one would expect from such as place, Luigi will need to deal with more than just ghosts. He will also face gruesome mummies and deadly booby traps.
The Dance Hall is another level Luigi will need to traverse, and it is much less creepy than the others, unless a player's idea of terrifying is a disco floor. It is bright, colorful, and filled with dancers and DJs -- all ghosts, of course. Another not-so-spooky floor is the pirate-themed restaurant called The Spectral Catch, which looks to be found in a buccaneer's cave. It doesn't seem so frightening until a ghost pirate ship comes into view, where a ghost shark stalks the deck. For even more floor previews, the Gamescom Luigi's Mansion 3 gameplay trailer that premiered last month has plenty.
Outside of new floors, the Direct also introduces ScreamPark, a party mode for 2 to 8 players. Participants split, being place on either Team Luigi or Team Gooigi, to battle it out by defeating the most ghosts, collecting the most coins, or breaking the most targets. There will many different stages, ranging from a graveyard to an old castle. Each player can use a single Joy-Con to join in on the ghoulish fun.
All of the spooky fun begins next month, when Luigi's Mansion 3 releases on the most perfect date imaginable: Halloween. The game will take place after the events of the first two games and will once again see Luigi taking a lead role, saving his friends from the depths of the haunted hotel.
Luigi's Mansion 3 is releasing on October 31, 2019, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
