The art direction in Luigi's mansion is surprisingly good

At first I was a bit turned off by the brighter palette, but the game footage from the latest nintendo direct is pretty awesome. The game looks gorgeous. I think maybe because the series is supposed to be more about humour than horror nintendo choose a brighter art style to emphasize it's a game with ghosts, but freakin luigi is in it.

Too bad the game will be boring.

I'm so glad you had your magical time machine so you could all warn us of that.

Game news is the best news.

More than just the art style, I hope this game also retains the atmosphere created in the first game. Loved hearing Luigi call out to Mario in a trembling voice as he inched his way through the mansion.

Its the little things that go a long way. Very eager for next month to finally get to play this.

I'm not into the haunted mansion theme but I like Luigi and finding / searching for stuff in games and that there is 8 mansions all with a different theme.

Still not sure if I'm going to get it yet, but it does have my interest.

It's powered by peoples' inane taste for a game about Nintendo's mascot's shadow vacuuming up ghosts for a baby scientist, and crapping his pants about it even though nothing in the game is scary.

Then why not have fluffy bunnies if the ghosts aren't going to be scary?

Luigi's Mansion 2 is the best Ghostbusters game you'll ever play by the looks of things.
