Whenever any new video game comes out, it seems that people aren’t asking how the visuals look or how the gameplay feels anymore, it’s all about whether or not there’s a dog in the game and whether you can pet it or not.

Right at the beginning of the game, you can go into one of the bathrooms in the hotel and Luigi’s ghost dog, Polterpup, is waiting there for you to give him a good pat on the head.
If you interact with him, Polterpup will lick Luigi in the face and then Luigi will say “puppy” in the cutest way possible.
I recorded a video from my playthrough of Luigi’s Mansion 3 so you guys can see the cuteness overload in action:
So yes, it may be a ghost dog, but you can indeed pet the dog in Luigi’s Mansion 3.
