Weekly Famitsu has published their Luigi’s Mansion 3 review within the Japanese gaming magazine’s illustrious pages this week, delivering the first verdict on the cowardly hero’s upcoming adventure.
That has seen their Cross Review, a panel that is comprised of four reviewers that each provides their own individual score, award the game with 33 out of a maximum possible score of 40 – which, broken down, saw it receive one 9 and three 8 scores.
The other Nintendo Switch games that they reviewed were Divinity: Original Sin II Definitive Edition (32 out of 40), Etherborn (28 out of 40), Ghost Blade HD (27 out of 40), Mario and Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games (34 out of 40), Model Debut #nicola (29 out of 40), and The Church in the Darkness (27 out of 40).
After receiving an invitation to a luxurious hotel, Luigi sets out on a dream vacation with Mario and friends. However, his dream soon becomes a nightmare when King Boo reveals that it was a plan to capture them all.
With help from Professor E. Gadd, the reluctant and cowardly hero must work his way through the hotel’s haunted floors in an effort to save his friends.
He carries the upgraded Poltergust G-00 that can be used to slam and blow away the ghosts’ defenses, or summon the all-green doppelganger Gooigi for help – whether playing solo or in co-operative multiplayer.
The ScareScraper mode can be played online or locally with up to eight players on four Nintendo Switch consoles, challenging players to clear objectives on a series of floors within the time limit.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on October 31st.
