Luigi’s Mansion 3 Haunts the Nintendo Switch into 2020 with Upcoming Multiplayer DLC


Nintendo wants to keep the spooky fun in Luigi’s Mansion 3 with new downloadable content.

The multinational video game company announced this evening that it has two DLC packs set for release in 2020, introducing new multiplayer mini-games. You cannot purchase them individually, and they’re available for pre-order for $9.99.

The first pack, Luigi’s Mansion 3 Multiplayer Pack Part 1, will arrive before April 30, 2020. It will introduce three new games to the multiplayer ScreamPark mode, along with three new outfits for Luigi (which match particular floor themes) and themed ghosts in the co-op ScareScraper mode.

Following that is the Multiplayer Pack Part 2, releasing before July 31, 2020. It will have three additional mini-games for ScreamPark, along with three new ScareScraper outfits (again, matching specific floor themes) and yet-to-be-revealed ghosts.

Those who pre-order the pack also receive an adorable Polterpup flashlight named the Flashlight Type-P. It’s available for use in both ScareScraper and Story Mode. You can get a preview of its adorableness above.

Remember, the multiplayer portion of these packs requires a Nintendo Account and Nintendo Switch Online membership. Fortunately, it’s reasonably priced, going for just $20 a year. You can learn more about how to subscribe from the official Nintendo Switch Online page.
