Thank you to Nintendo for sending me Luigi’s Mansion for Nintendo 3DS! All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
One of my favorite video games is Luigi’s Mansion, so I was super excited to find out they were making a Nintendo 3DS version. I just couldn’t wait to share it with my daughters – and when Nintendo offered to send me a copy, I jumped at the chance. To help celebrate the release of this awesome game, they also sent us a special Poltergust 3000 flashlight (just like Luigi’s) and a Luigi costume!
Why We Love Luigi’s Mansion
I remember playing Luigi’s Mansion when I was younger, and it was one of my favorite games. So I was thrilled to be able to introduce my daughter to it! She is 7 and can now safely use the 3D mode on her 3DS as well, and she was excited to try it out with this game first. She played it the entire weekend after I gave it to her, even in her bed! Her favorite part? Sucking up and defeating ghosts! Something that is new to this version (and really cool!) is that you can replay boss fights!
About Luigi’s Mansion for 3DS
G-g-ghosts! Time to suck those suckers up because Luigi is back in the first portable version of this spooky classic. After winning a mansion in a contest he didn’t enter, he must beat its many bosses and puzzles. Follow a map on the touchscreen, shine a flashlight, blow fire, shoot water, stun ghosts, and trap them…before Mario is trapped forever!
All this ghost-catching tomfoolery pays off! As you suck ‘em up with your Poltergust 3000, you could also rake in millions in hidden, in-game riches for our hard-luck hero. Make sure to search every area using the Game Boy Horror’s map on your touchscreen and activate its Boo Radar to track down every Boo in the mansion or spot ghosts’ weak points. After beating and capturing boss ghosts, you can select their portraits from the gallery to best your own score in tense rematches – a new feature in the Nintendo 3DS version!
