As Halloween fast approaches, the release of Luigi’s Mansion 3, the green one’s latest trip to a haunted mansion (will he never learn?), is nearly upon us. Nintendo is gearing for the launch by offering an extended look at the game’s multiplayer ScreamPark Mode. We knew about this addition before, of course, although here we get a longer look at three of the included games. It seems that the mode could be a more substantial offering than we first imagined.
At nearly 13 minutes long, the video details three of the minigames. The team start off simple with ‘Ghost Hunt’, a competitive team game (you’re either Team Luigi or Team Gooigi) which involves flushing out and sucking up as many ghosts as possible. Next up they try out ‘Cannon Barrage’ where the object is to load cannons and fire them at targets (it’s all about teamwork and timing). Finally, they up the player count to 8 and play ‘Coin Floating’, where each player dives onto an inflatable in a swimming pool and fights to get the most coins (and we have to say, the water looks most inviting).
They certainly look cute, although whether these minigames will have the staying power to keep you and your mates coming back for more is a question you’ll have to wait for our review to find out. The game certainly looks to provide plenty of Luigi and Gooigi goodness, though, and with Halloween only just over a week away, it won’t be long before we can get our hands on all these multiplayer treats ourselves.
Darkness falls across the land – the midnight hour is close at hand! Do you like the look of what Luigi’s will be slamming down with his Poltergust come 31st October? Let us know with a little message in the box below.
