Luigi's Nightmare is an upcoming Luigi's Mansion game for the Wii U made by SuyoGames. It features Luigi, on a quest to hunt sacred and cursed ghosts who have escaped from their prison and have been awakened from their slumber. It is being released on May 2015.

Nintendo eShop Description


Not much is known, but King Boo has captured Marios friends and trapped them in his mysterious mansion.


The Gameplay is similar to the other two Luigi's Mansion titles, Luigi is able to use the Poltergust 7000 by pressing the A button to suck enemies in, but first Luigi must stun the ghosts or the ghosts will probably escape from being sucked in. Luigi also has new types of upgrades using his new version of the Poltergust, such as one that allows him to squirt water, which is used for puzzles or dealing with some sort of ghost or enemy, this is done by pressing X to switch which mode the Poltergust is on. Luigi also uses a flashlight once again, but he has to charge it using B. The more Luigi charges the light, the longer the enemy will be stunned. There will also be certain kinds of special flashlights that Luigi can use in the game. Of course, Luigi also collects coins and jewels, similar to the other Luigi's Mansion games, these can be used to buy stuff from Toad shops.

Luigi navigates through levels using the ParaPad, which has the power to teleport and communicate with Luigi. Unlike running through mansions, Luigi has to enter Paintings similar to how Mario did in Super Mario 64, there are usually 3 paintings each floor of the mansion, you'll have access to higher levels of the mansion when you defeat the main boss of that floor.


  • Hunter Mode: Players will need to capture all the ghosts in order to advance to the next floor.
  • Rush Mode: Players will need to reach the hatch within the allotted time
  • Luigi VS Boo: Player 1 (Luigi) attempts to capture Ghost, Player 2 (Boos) in this competitive mode.
  • Boss Rush: Beat all bosses (Unlocked after beating all bosses)
