Luigi's Mansion 3 is Nintendo's Take on The Shining

Partner with Gooigi and fight ghosts.

We got the first look at Luigi's Mansion 3 for the Nintendo Switch. This time, Luigi is trapped in a haunted hotel and the ghosts are at it again.

Luigi's Mansion 3 takes a The Shining turn and pits Luigi against an army of ghosts haunting a spooky hotel. The classic ghost sucking vacuum powers are back, but Luigi gains a few added skills this time around.

He can partner with his gelatin friend Gooigi to solve various environmental puzzles. Gooigi was introduced in the 3DS sequel Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, but here he seems to be a requirement to solve certain puzzles as Gooigi is impervious to spikes and other dangers. The only thing is he's weak against water.

Luigi's Mansion is coming out later this year. For more on today's announcements check out our E3 2019 Nintendo Direct guide.
