Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD: latest trailer, more footage, and commercials

After Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door last week, Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD is the latest 1st-party release to hit the Nintendo Switch. It’s an enhanced port of Luigi’s Mansion 2 (originally known as Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon in North America), first released on Nintendo 3DS back in March 2013. It will launch on June 27th worldwide!

The game was first revealed during the Nintendo Direct in September 2013, where the following segment was shown:

This segment allowed us to get our first look at Luigi’s Mansion 2 on Nintendo Switch, but if you want to see more of the game in action, here’s another video with over 5 minutes of footage!

And finally, earlier this month, Nintendo shared a brand new trailer for the game. This one focuses on the story!

And as an extra, here’s some commercials from Japan (there’s three of them in total):

Explore multiple haunted mansions with Luigi and his ghost-hunting Poltergust 5000

Progress through diverse missions to retrieve the missing shards of the Dark Moon scattered across several distinct haunted mansions, each with their own puzzles to solve and ghosts to capture. Go for a high rating by using your superpowered ghost-hunting tool, the Poltergust 5000, to suck up ghosts (and window curtains) and blow air to search every nook and cranny of the chilling-yet-charming mansions. This spooky fun adventure, originally released for the Nintendo 3DS system, is now visually enhanced in HD on the Nintendo Switch system.

Friendly ghosts turned fiendish—sounds like a job for Luigi!

The Dark Moon that hangs over Evershade Valley seems to have a calming effect on the ghosts that reside there. The quirky Professor E. Gadd has been studying the friendly spirits. But when the Dark Moon suddenly breaks apart and falls into the valley below, the once-friendly ghosts become hostile. Luigi must stumble into action and summon his courage to restore the Dark Moon to its rightful place in the sky.

Tackle the ScareScraper together

You and up to three players* can team up to take on the challenges of the ScareScraper, a haunted building teeming with ghosts and challenges not found in the main adventure. Recruit your fellow ghost hunters to scale the terrifying tower locally or online.
