So, there's a rumor floating around right now (no pun intended) that Luigi's Mansion 3 is going to be a launch title for the NX. Don't know if it's true or not, but I RRREEEEEEAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYY hope it is. I want another Luigi's Mansion game so bad!
Ooh! Sounds like a good idea, but how would something like that work?
I loved both the original and Dark Moon; the original Luigi's Mansion was the game that got me into the Mario series as a whole! I still have fond memories of playing that game and replaying it, listening to Luigi hum the main theme (or whistle it when the lights were on), being scared of the ghosts popping out of nowhere, the Boolossus battle and how hard it was (especially when you got down to that last Boo ), those little extra cutscenes where the Boos blew you away if you tried to enter the Boolossus battle or King Boo's area without catching enough Boos, chasing Boos through several rooms and how mad I'd get when they'd fly into a room I didn't have a key for, that terrible part where the electricity went out and BAM! ghosts everywhere, talking to Toads and the professor on the phones in the attic, finding all the Toads, finding Mario's dropped items, finding Mario's painting and the heartwarming scene at the end...love Luigi's Mansion!
"Luigi’s Mansion 3 is in development for Nintendo NX, according to the latest rumours to swirl around the unannounced “dedicated game platform.”
After indicating that the platform will be more powerful than PlayStation 4 “by a noticeable amount,” NeoGAF user 10k is back with more rumours for us to pore over. That suggests that Next Level Games are working on Luigi’s next ghost-ridden solo adventure, with Nintendo suitably pleased at their efforts with Luigi’s Mansion 2 for Nintendo 3DS.
Once in development for Wii U, Luigi’s Mansion 3 has been switched to Nintendo NX – presumably as an attempt to prevent the sparse release schedule that its predecessor had suffered. With the developer working on Metroid Prime: Federation Force, the studio’s resources are more than enough to handle working on both games.
“Luigi’s Mansion 3 is in development for NX. This rumor gained popularity awhile ago from Geno but this isn’t my source,” 10k explains. “This was a T1 to start but today I got another source to give some info on it. Two different sources have told me that it is in development for NX, and one source said it’s being developed by Next Level Games, who is big enough to do this and Federation Force at the same time.
“One source said it started as a Wii U game but after the disappointing performance of the Wii U and the scheduled release date for the game being late in the console’s cycle, Nintendo decided to switch development over to NX. (basically the same situation as Zelda for Wii U, but no word on if this game will also get a Wii U version). The other source said it’s a pretty big deal (he didn’t elaborate if he meant Nintendo is making it a big deal or his workplace is).”
