Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD Spooks Its Way To Nintendo Switch Today

Join the faint-of-heart hero Luigi with his trusty Poltergust 5000 on a spooky quest with Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD, out now for Nintendo Switch.

Evershade Valley has been enveloped in a frightening fog and the peculiar Dark Moon which once hung in the sky – pacifying the land’s ghostly inhabitants – has mysteriously shattered.

Witnessing this strange phenomenon, ghost researcher Professor E. Gadd calls upon Luigi to stop the spirits from wreaking havoc across the valley. Can the cowardly hero gather his courage, find the scattered pieces of the Dark Moon and restore peace? See what kind of ghastly and ghostly surprises are in store in A closer spook at Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD! (Nintendo Switch).

To recover the scattered Dark Moon shards, players will explore haunted mansions infested with ghoulish ghosts of all shapes, sizes and colours. Watch out for shockwaves caused by the aggressive red Slammers, dodge flying furniture lobbed by sneaky blue Hiders, and take care not to slip in the puddles of ghastly goo left by yellow Gobbers. Boos are also running amok, and will pose quite the challenge even for the more seasoned spirit hunters. Each mysterious manor is brimming with ghosts, with each mansion stranger than the last.

Take on the ghosts with some nifty new gadgets, courtesy of Professor E. Gadd. Chief among them is the Poltergust 5000. Use its Strobulb attachment to stun sneaky spirits, then fire up this souped-up vacuum to suck up one or several ghosts at once. Hold on tight though, because they won’t go down without a fight. Add a burst of colour with the Dark-Light Device and equip it to the Poltergust 5000 to reveal hidden phantoms, invisible objects and more with its rainbow light.

Additionally, up to four supernatural enthusiasts can team up – online* or via local wireless – to take on the challenges of the ScareScraper, a haunted building packed with ghosts and challenges not found in the main adventure. Recruit your fellow hunters to scale the terrifying tower together.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD is out now on Nintendo Switch. Join Luigi on a spooky quest to find the scattered pieces of the Dark Moon and restore peace to Evershade Valley. Prepare to explore a variety of mysterious haunted mansions infested with ghosts and take them on with some nifty new gadgets, including the Poltergust 5000. Up to four friends can team up to take on the challenges of the ScareScraper, a haunted building packed with ghosts and challenges apart from Luigi’s main adventure.
