Developed by Vancouver-based Next Level Games, Luigi’s Mansion 3 will introduce online and local multiplayer, new skills and new character Gooigi, a gooey version of Luigi who can slide through fences and step across spikes that are inaccessible for Luigi himself.
While we already knew specific release dates for some of the biggest upcoming Switch games, such as September 20 for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and November 15 for Pokémon Sword and Shield, until now Luigi’s Mansion 3 was only confirmed for release in the fourth quarter of 2019.
During the Nintendo Direct E3 broadcast in June, the platform holder delayed Animal Crossing: New Horizons from its previously announced 2019 launch window to March 2020. The move contributed to Nintendo’s biggest one-day shares decline since April, knocking $1 billion off its market value.
