Luigi’s Mansion Remake Heading to 3DS

Though it may have starred his lesser-statured — and somewhat less-courageous — brother Luigi, the absence of Mario during the launch period of the Nintendo Gamecube, surprisingly, was no bad thing as Luigi’s Mansion turned out to be a highly-enjoyable spin-off to the traditional Mario platforming formula. And while it may have got a follow-up sequel for the handheld, Nintendo have announced in today’s Nintendo Direct that the 2001 original will be getting a remake for the 3DS.

No release date has thus far been provided outside of a vague target release for 2018, so stay tuned as we learn more of Luigi’s Mansion for Nintendo 3DS.
