What is Luigi’s Mansion all about then?
Luigi’s Mansion was an original game for the Nintendo GameCube many moons ago in 2002.
The game sees everyone’s (second favourite?) Italian plumber and his quest to solve the mysteries of a haunted mansion and find Mario, who is missing somewhere within.
Here’s some more info, courtesy of Nintendo:
Luigi has to progress through the mansion, from room to room, solving puzzles as he goes. Pretty soon Luigi runs into some of the ghostly inhabitants of the mansion. The ghosts come in all shapes and sizes and have personality in abundance. Fortunately, Luigi is rescued by the quirky Professor E. Gad, who explains all about the mysterious mansion.
The Professor becomes Luigi’s counsel throughout the game, offering him help where he can via the Game Boy “Horror”, a modified Game Boy used for looking at the game map, items collected, etc. Gad introduces Luigi to his special vacuum cleaner, the Poltergust 3000, which forms a major part of the core gameplay. Luigi’s flashlight is used to stun ghosts and then the vacuum cleaner sucks them up.
The ghosts however, don’t give up without a fight and will struggle to break free. Luigi must pull away from the ghost, which will reel them in like a fish on a hook.
