With yet another store listing Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon as a Wii U title, there’s a growing amount of belief that the game might well be coming to the Wii U after all, what with the likes of Best Buy listing it as such. But in my opinion, the game shouldn’t be rereleased on Wii U, and here’s why…
Thanks to a GameStop slip up, a flyer for their upcoming Black Friday shopping event has been leaked online. And guess what? It confirms that the special Link Between Worlds 3DS/bundle will be released in the US, along with a slightly less interesting one for Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon!
Yeah, sales wise these games are doing fantastically so far. For instance, Animal Crossing New Leaf has so far sold over 5 million copies worldwide, which is rather impressive for a 3DS game that hasn’t long been out in regions not called Japan. And Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon is hanging in there too, with a nice 2.7 million copies sold worldwide (for anyone interested, that’s more than the Gamecube game ever sold). Additionally, when you consider that neither game has even been out a full year in all regions, and you add the inevitable long term sales these games will make over time… you’ve got some fairly impressive numbers. So, are you happy with how Animal Crossing New Leaf and […]
Luigi’s Mansion 2 has a fantastic soundtrack, but do you want to know what the actual composer has to say about it? Well it seems like you’re in luck, since the Nintendo Sheet Music forums have an interview topic where members can put questions to him and have him answer them. There’s a lot of great info about how the game’s soundtrack came to be there, such as… 2. How inspired were you by Kazumi Totaka’s score for the original 2001 Luigi’s Mansion? Was the development team able to collaborate with Totaka for this game? Well we paid homage to it by remixing “EGadd’s Theme” in a couple of variations. I think that both this game and it’s predecessor fall […]
In fact, the game has apparently been selling so well over here recently that it’s gone back UP the charts to third place. That’s pretty impressive for a game that’s been on the market for about 3 months already, especially one with as ‘non mainstream’ an appeal as Luigi’s Mansion 2. Here’s the top ten best-selling games in the UK: As you can see, Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Far Cry 3 have done a bit better this week. Lego City Undercover? Not so much. Above: Luigi’s Mansion 2 is still selling. And as for Wii U games… yeah, they’re still not charting over here at all. Seriously, even in the full ‘top 40′ games chart, not one Wii U game […]
With two beloved Nintendo series revivals under their belt in the form of Punch Out and Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon, Next Level Games has worked on quite a few brilliant titles for their systems. But according to this interview, the two series they’d really love to work on are far larger and more well-known: Mario and The Legend of Zelda Yep, they’d love to work on the next Mario or Zelda title, as mentioned in a recent interview with Nintendo Life. Here’s what they say about the matter: Really, we are grateful to work on any Nintendo IP but if there are any wish-granting entities listening out there, we would love a chance to work on a Zelda or Mario […]
In celebration of 2013 as the ‘Year of Luigi’, the 30th anniversary of the green wonder’s debut appearance in 1983 NES title Mario Bros, Nintendo have released an official timeline chronicling his adventures thus far. Above is the timeline in its full glory. Can you name all the games?

Unlocked by capturing all the Boos in each of the game’s mansions, these missions have you run around an already completed mansion capturing a ‘random’ set of ghosts as far as possible.
