At E3 2019, Nintendo finally showed off Luigi’s Mansion 3 with extended gameplay but still did not announce a confirmed release date. Kotaku spoke to Next Level Games (the developers) about various aspects of the game including how they plan on addressing criticisms from the second entry. Luigi’s Mansion 3 for Nintendo Switch follows Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon on Nintendo 3DS that sold very well but wasn’t the fan favourite in the series. Next Level Games promises to add more puzzles and have better boss battles compared to the second entry. Watch extended gameplay from Nintendo Treehouse below:
Speaking to Kotaku, they said they wanted to put unique bosses into the second game but they couldn’t. They have put many unique bosses in Luigi’s Mansion 3 to make up for the lack of them in Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. Another bit of information revealed in Kotaku’s interview is that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is not mission based. This is great because players can now explore the in game world freely once they have completed a certain floor of the hotel where the game takes place.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 releases this year on Nintendo Switch.
