Nintendo's 'Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon' for 3DS.
Nintendo has revealed new information about its upcoming 3DS exclusive video game, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, launching on March 24.
In the game, Luigi will stumble through multiple mansions to capture ghosts and solve puzzles while armed with his trusty ghost-catching vacuum cleaner, the Poltergust 5000. In a series first, the game will feature local and online multiplayer modes, as well as Download Play capabilities.
Players can join up with as many as three others (for a total of four) and journey into the ScareScraper, which is crowded with paranormal creatures. In Hunter Mode, each player controls a different color Luigi and is challenged to hunt down ghosts and use effective teamwork to clear each floor of the tower before the clock strikes zero. Bonuses and upgrades can be earned depending on how well the team performs. There are also boss battles at the top of each tower. Players can choose the number of floors in this mode ranging from five, 10, or 25. They can adjust the difficulty to cater to both new and veteran gamers. Fallen players can even be revived by their teammates to keep the adventure going.
When Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon launches on March 24, it will be available both in traditional retail and as a download from the Nintendo eShop. Regardless of the purchasing method, the game will sell for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon has been rated "E for Everyone" by the ESRB.
