Playing Games - Luigi's Mansion 3

Luigi’s invited to the towering Last Resort hotel, but when Mario and friends go missing, our green-clad hero will have to conquer his fears to save them!

With so many solo games out there to play, I was very eager for this one to hit the eShop. Luigi's Mansion 3 is a proper co-op game that is packed with fun! This game instantly feels like a Nintendo classic that pushes all those buttons that Nintendo is so good at. Although this is the third installment in the series, the game feels fresh and new in almost every way. All the mechanics not only feel good from a control standpoint, but they add delight to the whole experience.

The addition of Gooigi as the second player works very well. I like that it's not just an exact copy of Luigi but he performs his own unique moves and actions, meaning it's not just an optional character, but an essential one. Because of this, you do also have the option to play solo and switch between the two depending on what abilities you need for a given challenge. One of my favorite things is how much of the environment you can suck up with the Poltergust! (Most of the stuff you don't need to suck up, but you want to just for the fun of it!) 👻

Graphically, the game is beautiful and runs great on the switch. The game has smooth transitions, and solid load times throughout. The art style is delightful, and the detail is quite rich in each environment.

Slam, blow away, and vacuum up ghosts with the all-new Poltergust G-00, and join forces with Gooigi to overcome the puzzling contraptions and mischievous boss on each themed floor. And that’s just the Last Resort. Enter the ScareScraper for 8-player local wireless or online co-op gameplay.

Available in both physical and digital! It's a solid get!
