Luigi’s harrowing adventure dates back to 2001 when the game first released on the Gamecube. Since then, Luigi’s Mansion had gotten a sequel, Dark Moon, on the 3DS in 2013. Those who had never gotten the chance to play the first Luigi’s Mansion game can follow Mario’s brother on the 3DS once the remake finally hits the handheld system. The first game follows everyone’s favorite scaredy-cat as he embarks on a journey to save his brother after being imprisoned in a painting. Armed with nothing but a vacuum, Luigi explores the haunted mansion and fights ghosts by sucking them in his machine.
Lately, Luigi’s latest exploits had earned him a cameo in Simon Belmont’s Smash reveal trailer. Despite the unfortunate incident that led to his demise, Nintendo has confirmed that Luigi is actually, in fact, alive and well.
