Luigi’s Mansion 3DS has been rated in Australia and the decision has revealed the developer. Grezzo, the developer of Majora’s Mask and Triforce Heros on 3DS, will be handling development duties.
Luigi’s Mansion 3DS was announced during the March 2018 Nintendo Direct and is a confirmation of Nintendo’s continued commitment to the 3DS.
Luigi’s Mansion is the much-loved launch title for the Gamecube that saw Mario’s brother searching for him in a haunted mansion.
Luigi’s Mansion 3DS
In Luigi’s Mansion, Luigi teams up with E. Gadd and uses the special Poltergust 3000 to capture ghosts and solve the mystery of where Mario has disappeared to.
Originally revealed at Spaceworld 2000 as a tech demo for the Gamecube and was hugely popular on release. Aside from sucking up and capturing ghosts, Luigi can use the Poltergust 3000 to suck up paintings, curtains, cobwebs and most importantly, cash.
A sequel, Luigi’s Mansion 2, was released for 3DS in 2013.
Luigi’s Mansion 3DS has been rated PG for mild supernatural themes and violence. The release date for Luigi’s Mansion 3DS is unknown, but we do know that Grezzo is the developer and that bodes well for the port.
Grezzo was founded in 2006 by ex-Square Enix devs and has released games exclusively for Nintendo. Grezzo was responsible for porting both Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask to 3DS.
Both ports were excellent transitions from console to handheld and breathed new life into the games. It’s likely that Grezzo will similarly improve Luigi’s Mansion 3DS and introduce new features based on the handhelds functions.
Luigi’s Mansion 3DS is definitely going to be worth playing, especially now we know Grezzo is developing.
