Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon remake announced

Nintendo has announced its plans to remake Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon for an upcoming Switch version. Here are all the currently known details.

Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon – also known as Luigi’s Mansion 2 – came out on the Nintendo 3DS in 2013. It served as the sequel to the 2001 GameCube title Luigi’s Mansion.

In the game, players must control Luigi and his Poltergust 5000 to rescue Mario from King Boo and find the shards of the Dark Moon. Luigi must also capture ghosts from various locations to restore the peace in Evershade Valley.

The remake marks another upcoming Mario to feature someone else taking the reins instead of the familiar protagonist. Nintendo also revealed another Princess Peach: Showtime! trailer during the same Direct as Luigi. Here’s everything we know about Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD.

Nintendo first announced the Dark Moon remake in a short teaser during the June 2023 Direct presentation.

“Retrieve the missing shards of the Dark Moon scattered across several distinct haunted mansions, each with their own puzzles to solve and ghosts to capture,” Nintendo’s description reads. “Use your superpowered ghost-hunting tool, the Poltergust 5000, to suck up ghosts (and window curtains) and blow air to search every nook and cranny of the chilling-yet-charming mansions.”

In Evershade Valley, up to four players can play together locally or online to capture ghosts and help Luigi save the day.
