Story Trailer

Luigi returns to help his mad-scientist friend, Professor E. Gadd, by sucking up the ghosts in each of the mysterious mansions filled with puzzling contraptions that must be manipulated to proceed. Armed with a torch and the Poltergust 5000, which can be upgraded with new features such as the Strobulb light to stun the wacky wraiths and the Dark-Light Device to reveal invisible clues and objects, Luigi is fully equipped to tackle any paranormal activity!
As you explore, keep a close eye on your surroundings and investigate every nook and cranny to bring the secrets of the mansions to light. Experimenting with the Poltergust’s functions to either suck things up or blow them away will often be key to making your way: rolling up a carpet may reveal a concealed switch, while peeling off loose wallpaper can expose a secret doorway. As you come up with different ways to use your tools, you’ll also uncover fiendishly hidden gems for your collection and gather stacks of cash to gain equipment upgrades.
The adventure is brought to life with rich, cartoon-like graphics in immersive auto-stereoscopic 3D. Each mansion has its own characteristics and equally the variety of ghosts roaming the mansions’ halls and rooms are full of personality, fun and mischief, lending a light-hearted touch to the exploration of the haunted houses.
In addition to the solo adventure, up to four players can get together locally or online to venture into the Thrill Tower in the multiplayer mode, where each controls a differently-coloured Luigi to tackle three varied challenges awaiting on its floors. In Hunter mode, work together to hunt down ghouls and clear each floor before the clock strikes zero. In Polterpup mode, chase the adorable ghost dog with your Dark-Light Device in tow to catch him. In Rush mode, frantically hunt for the escape hatch that allows your team Luigi to climb up to the next floor.
International critics have been enjoying Luigi’s Mansion 2 as seen through the glowing reviews to date, including:

“Every haunted room seems to breathe with an inventive charm and delicate attention to detail that make this game one of the best reasons to own a 3DS” – 9.3 – GameTrailers
