'Luigi's Mansion 3' May Be A Nintendo NX Launch Title, If This Latest Rumor Is To Be Believed


Rumors about Nintendo's new console continue to come in, and this time, it's about one of the console's supposed launch titles.

According to Dual Pixels, citing its tipster Geno, Luigi's Mansion 3 will be a launch title for Nintendo's next console. It's planned to be the game that will show off just how powerful the NX is, with the game supposedly looking like a "living 3D cartoon movie."

The game is said to employ the NX controller's rumored haptic feedback analog sticks when capturing ghosts, and that an augmented reality multiplayer mode is also being planned for the title.

"The goal I've been told, was when the team at Next Level and EAD Tokyo 2 saw the American commercial for Luigi's Mansion 2 (aka Dark Moon) their goal was to create something that [was] visually stunning for NX and according to sources they have come 'damn close to it,'" Geno tells the site.

Keep in mind that nothing official has been announced about the NX, much less games releasing for it. As such, it's best to take all of this with a grain of salt, though Dual Pixels' source, Geno, has been right in the past. His last rumor revolved around the NX hardware itself, saying the console will feature haptic feedback controllers, AR multiplayer and the ability to interface with nearly any modern smart device via Bluetooth.

Having a Luigi's Mansion title for the release of a new console certainly isn't out of left field. The first game in the series launched as a Nintendo Gamecube launch title, while the second, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, released shortly after the debut of the original Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo is expected to reveal official details about its new console in the coming months, with one rumor even stating that the NX may be getting a 2016 release alongside the upcoming next entry in the Legend of Zelda franchise. Another rumor states that the long-in-limbo Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be an NX exclusive as well. That's all still unconfirmed at this point, but expect plenty of new details in the months ahead. With so many rumors flying about, Nintendo needs to speak up sooner rather than later.
