Dark Moon highlights
The Dark Moon sequel, also known as Luigi’s Mansion 2 in some parts of the world, offers players a spooky yet fun action-adventure game with plenty of mysteries to uncover and ghosts to catch. Nintendo fans have a soft spot for the earlier games in the series. But Luigi’s Mansion 3, which debuted on Nintendo Switch in 2019, stole the show by adding a new storyline and a variety of multiplayer mini-games.
For lovers of Nintendo’s earlier hardware, finding these classic games has become difficult since the Nintendo eShop was shut down for 3DS and Wii U devices. But what made fans happy is that Nintendo said that Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is now in works and will come to Nintendo Switch soon. If nothing accidental happens, it will come next year. Players will be able to enjoy the classic single-player campaign on more modern technology with this enhanced edition.
