The most recent Nintendo Direct started with a bang, as it was announced that Luigi’s Mansion 3 (working title) will soon be released on the Nintendo Switch.
It’s great news for Luigi fans, as the Mansion games have been a firm favourite of fans since the release of the first Luigi’s Mansion, which launched way back when as a release title for the GameCube.
The GameCube game became the fourth best-selling title for the console, and its success spawned the 2013 3DS sequel, Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon.
We couldn’t be more excited for a new Luigi’s Mansion!
It’s been given a release date for sometime in 2019, but nothing more specific as of just yet…
Speaking of Luigi, we’ll be seeing way more of him on the Switch according to the new info from Nintendo.
The Mario brother definitely isn’t shying away from the Nintendo Switch, and he’s set to appear in ANOTHER title for the console out on 11th Jan 2019, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe isn’t exactly new, but if you haven’t played many of the more recent Super Mario Bros. titles then this is a good collection.
It also includes New Super Luigi U, which is a definite must for Mario and Luigi fans!
Some of the other games announced during the Nintendo Direct include some of the most highly-requested titles imaginable, and yes I’m talking about Animal Crossing for the Switch.
If that doesn’t float your boat, we also got to see the upcoming Super Smash Bros. edition Switch console which looks amazing.
And of course we learned more about the online services coming from Nintendo.
From 18th September 2018 the official Nintendo online service will be live. It’s going to cost around $4 (USD) a month to subscribe or $20 for a full 12 month deal. It’s set to support online play, offer NES games and some cloud support too.
