Luigi won’t have to tackle the spooky horrors of a haunted hotel alone when “Luigi’s Mansion 3” comes out sometime this year. He’ll get help from his sticky doppelganger named Gooigi, Nintendo revealed during its E3 2019 Direct on Tuesday.
The player can change between Luigi and Gooigi to overcome obstacles like fences and spikes, Nintendo said. But, he melts in water. The player can also pass a Joy-Con over to a friend and both can play together in co-op.
Speaking of co-op, “Luigi’s Mansion 3” also introduces a new single-player or co-op mode called ScareScrapper, where players search the haunted hotel for toads. It can be played online or locally with up to eight players on four Nintendo Switch systems.
Nintendo also detailed some of the new abilities players can expect from Luigi’s upgraded Poltergust G-00, a vacuum cleaner the cowardly plumber uses to suck up spirits. It has a new slam attack and an ability called the Suction Shot, which attaches a plunger to objects so Luigi can pull them. It can destroy furniture and it’s effective against certain ghosts as well. Meanwhile, a new Burst ability is good for blowing away multiple ghosts, giving Luigi a little breathing space during battles.
“Luigi’s Mansion 2” comes out sometime this year exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
