Nintendo returns to the world of survival horror

The decision to follow-up 2001's Luigi's Mansion is one of Nintendo's oddest in recent years. While there's no denying the GameCube original's cult status, the 12-year-old spin-off is hardly at the top of our sequel wishlist.... read more

That pun both sucks and blows.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

I can help you with that my good man.

It's because it's a 3DS game.

Hope that clears it up.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

The multiplayer mode sounds like that film "The Raid". Can't wait for this game!

What about the 3D effects? This looks like a game that could put the stereoscopic 3D into good use. (I'm one of the few... I guess, that bought a 3DS for the glasses-free 3D).

I seem to remember reading something about Luigi's torch shining out of the screen at you.

Hopefully there will be a little bit more 3D implemented than that, but hey it's something right?

you know what i really enjoyed the original luigis mansion was something i wasnt expecting to like but i found it to have a certain charm that was ,for me, better than a standard mario game and if this was a WiiU game i would have a lot more interest in it the reasons to pick up a 3ds are starting to stack up and i may have to take the plunge before i go away on holiday

Everyone else is going "woo, yay", and all I can think is "wish the 3DS had another analogue stick". Role reversal much? Then again, I had few problems with KIU's apparently hellish control scheme, so I'm sure I'll find my way around this. And Luigi looks great.

Yay for Chris and more features of this sort!

I've edited that unnecessary bit of 'yoof' out of your post Bally, that's not like you young man!

Anyway, I know what you mean and as i've upgraded to the 3DSXL It may be a case of CP-Pro XL on the horizon.

Apologies. I have been watching Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged and it seems to have invaded my posting. But given that the control scheme has been adapted for the standard 3DS setup, I doubt the CP will be very useful.
