Treehouse Live explores Luigi's Mansion 3's spooky movie studio and multiplayer features


For the third entry in the series, Luigi's Mansion 3, instead of a mansion (or several) Luigi and his friends are having a relaxing stay in a hotel. But this time, you'll be exploring a haunted hotel, using new fighting elements, and have the help of a gooey doppelganger.

Gooigi is also Nintendo's way of adding in local co-op for the full story playthrough, and to extend the game's online multiplayer "ScareScraper" from four to eight players.

Another major addition to the game is Gooigi, a goo-copy of Luigi who can walk through spikes or ooze between metal bars, but is completely undone by water.

Luigi's Mansion 3 didn't get a release date revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct on Tuesday but details were given about the new functions of Luigi's Poltergust G-00 and a returning co-op mode.

It feels like its taken forever for a new Luigi's Mansion to finally grace us. So, if you follow the math on all this, that equates to a max of 2 players per Switch, 4 Switches total, for a max of 8 players that can be accommodated in this mode.

Overall it looks like Nintendo are taking what made the original Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon fun, unique experiences and combining them into a definitive experience. How many do you need before it's a saga? The 3DS versions responded to Boo, Luigi, Mario, and Toad amiibos. This can be done locally through co-op or via online multiplayer. We'll just have to wait and see.
