Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD Full Review!

Poor Luigi – Mario's hapless brother is famed for his cowardice, so being trapped in a haunted house populated by a host of rampaging spooks is probably one of his worst nightmares.

This is the second time it's happened! A delightfully spooky adventure originally released on Nintendo 3DS

Luigi's quest to reclaim the fragmented Dark Moon and restore peace to the spooky Evershade Valley – by snatching up a variety of mischievous spirits in the Poltergust 5000 vac-pack – has been locked to the classic handheld since 2013.

With Nintendo shutting down the 3DS eShop in 2023, it essentially became lost media, making this Switch remaster a welcome return.

However, if you were expecting a full-bore remake to bring the handheld favourite up to par with 2019's Luigi's Mansion 3

the hint is in the name – Luigi's Mansion 2 HD is just that, a faithful recreation of the 3DS original

None of our reluctant hero's upgraded abilities from the more recent game, such as area attacks to push back groups of enemies or slamming tougher ghosts into the floor
