Action-adventure games have always held a special place in my heart, especially those blending mystery and exploration. “Luigi’s Mansion 3” caught my interest with its unique ghost-hunting take. Unlike repetitive sports or military games, “Luigi’s Mansion 3” offers a refreshing escape into a whimsical, spooky world, showcasing Nintendo’s creativity.

Engaging Gameplay Mechanics

At its core, “Luigi’s Mansion 3” follows Luigi’s exploits within the towering Last Resort hotel. The all-new Poltergust G-00, a ghost-busting vacuum, is central to the gameplay. Players use the Poltergust G-00 to capture ghosts, solve puzzles, and interact with the environment. Features like the Slam, Suction Shot, and Burst add layers of strategy and fun to combat and puzzle-solving.

The introduction of Gooigi—a gooey doppelganger of Luigi—adds a unique twist. Gooigi can slip through tight spaces, walk on spikes, and help Luigi overcome obstacles. Players can switch between Luigi and Gooigi in single-player mode or opt for a two-player co-op experience, enhancing the game’s versatility and fun.
