    Default Luigi's Mansion Series

    Talk about both Luigi's Mansion games in this thread! There is Luigi's Mansion released for the GameCube in 2001 and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (known as Luigi's Mansion 2 in Europe and Luigi Mansion 2 in Japan) coming out for the 3DS in March!

    Who's excited for Dark Moon? I'm very excited and hopefully we can all play Scarescraper (Trill Tower in the PAL Versions)!

    Has anyone actually played the first game? I never have. It looks fun though.

    I thought the first game was fantastic, definitely one of the better games for the GameCube. I particularly liked the animation and sound work. Hopefully the new game will be able to hold up to the original.

    I've never played the first Luigi's Mansion due to the fact of not having a GameCube, but I've watched videos of the game and it looks great. Now after about 12 years Nintendo's finally making another one, best thing IMO that it's coming to the 3DS because of them originally wanting it to be in 3D.
    I'm definitely excited for it to be released next month now that they actually have a release date for it(....finally, been waiting since E3 2011). Even though it's not as dark like the original was it's because Dark Moon is more light hearted with funny interactions, regardless it still looks like an awesome game.

    I thought that was a Boo night light at first.

    Now I'm disappointed that such a thing does not exist.

    I played and beaten the first Luigi's Mansion numerous times. Great game, even though it's short. I'm really looking forward to Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. I have the game pre-ordered, too.

    I played through Luigi's Mansion two times, and this time i'm trying to get a gold frame on all of the portrait ghosts. it's pretty challenging. I wonder what the storyline will be like in Dark Moon...?

    If I remember correctly, the story we've been given so far is that the Dark Moon has been broken into pieces and that Luigi has to find them and reassemble them. How and why it was done is unknown, as is the consequences of the breaking and what will happen when the Dark Moon is reassembled. It is also unknown what, if any, role Mario will play in this game.
    Team Rocket will pay for their crimes.

    Luigi's Mansion was by far one of my favorite Gamecube games followed with Animal Crossing and Smash. But this game is also my favorite game with our green plumber! I played the first one and loved it so i'm really glad that they made a sequel. Hopefully a new ghost is the main protagonist otherwise King Boo must be up to something eviler then kidnapping Mario.
    Also if you haven't played the original I highly suggest it. Not to play before Dark Moon comes out. But in your life time play it, it's a really great game!

    On it's wiki page Professor E. Gadd is doing research on the now friendly ghost's when suddenly the Dark Moon shatters. After this happens the once friendly ghost's turn evil, E. Gadd then calls upon Luigi once more to use the new poltergust 5000 to capture the ghost's, and find the shattered pieces of the Dark Moon.
    As of right now there will be five different Mansions making five pieces of the Dark Moon that Luigi will have to get.

    Heck yeah I'm excited for Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon! Luigi's Mansion is a great and fun game, and this one looks to be just that. The recent Nintendo Direct got me a lot more excited about this game in the Year of Luigi.

    oh thank you. Dark Moon sounds really epic so far, i'm glad they kept the same old characters. I really can't wait for this game, when i read that there were going to be "five different mansions," i felt a little apprehensive.. i guess change is good though. hopefully those 5 mansions will be at least different design styles.

    Each Mansion will have a different style, if you don't care for spoilers

    Dark Moon sounds like it's going to be a great game. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

    Though now it makes sense that the game gets pushed back because it starts off the Year of Luigi and it is a great way to start it.

    Am I the only one who prefers the new standard ghost designs as opposed to the ones from the first game?

    I never played the original, so I want to play a demo of this before deciding whether or not to get it. It's odd that they don't have one for this game up given all of the hype it's gotten (I mean seriously, Gates to Infinity got one and not only is it out 3 days after this, but it's way less hyped).

    Nah, I like the older ones better. Also:

    First two hours of the game covered. Sounds like there's a huge amount of stuff being offered.

    lol, I got on GameXplain's channel earlier just curious to see if there was any new videos for the game up an saw this. To bad though that he couldn't reveal a whole lot of the game because of Nintendo's rules.
    In a way though I'm glad cause I really don't want to have most of the game spoiled for me before I even get a chance to play it myself.
    I'd like go into the game blind and learn most of it on my own. There's going to be the review for the game on it's release day.

    A couple of reviews for Luigi's Mansion 2 are already out, all of them very positive:

    I'm really looking forward to this game, I like pretty much everything I've seen of it thus far.

    I don't buy games based on the reviews they get, but it is great to see Dark Moon get great reviews nonetheless!

    Well, got Dark Moon today, and played up through the first boss. So far I have mixed feelings about it. I'm not a huge fan of the "mission" style gameplay, since in general I've always found it to sort of muddle the pace with the stop-and-go style... Although it does add replay value, since you can replay missions at any time rather than being left with a big empty mansion until you beat the game in the original. It also seems like the aiming is a bit worse than the Gamecube version, since you can't really pivot side-to-side while sucking the way you could before.

    That said, it's still fun, and they definitely made it a bit more creative with the regular enemies patterns.
    I make no claim of being perfect or always right. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.
