Luigi’s Mansion 3: Portrait Panic (Current Title) is an upcoming game/project by YeeMeYee Studios, currently stated to be published for the Nintendo Switch (previously for the Nintendo Wii U). Just like its two predecessors (Luigi’s Mansion / Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon), the game takes place in several haunted mansions/areas where Luigi is supposed to catch ghosts and/or boo’s, finish levels and solve certain missions in a puzzle-oriented way to reach its goal. The Game is lineair, which means that the game's story takes place in a lineair way, not like in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, where one can choose wether to take part of pieces of the story or not.
To help Luigi on his quest through all the ghostly residences, an old scientist named Elvin Gadd (or E. Gadd for short) has equipped him with a newly invented vacuum cleaner called the “Poltergust 7500“ (with an invisible plastic bin, to be able to see what’s inside the vacuum cleaner!), used for capturing ghosts, and a “Ternary Scream", a portable device (based on the New Nintendo 3DS) used for communicating with the professor. He also uses the BoohPad (based on the GamePad of the Wii U) as a map and to examine ghosts-filled areas.
In the previous two Luigi's Mansion games, it was Mario who went missing or got captured, and it was up to Luigi to save him. Sadly, after the events of LM2: Dark Moon, King Boo has found a way out of E. Gadd's laboratory during his absence and takes revenge on him by kidnapping the professor into a painting with the help of his nephew; Red Eyed Boo. King Boo's unknown new illusionary magic created an alternate universe together with his nephews powers, called the Painted Veil. That is where he keeps E. Gadd and his Toad assistant in captivity. King Boo is now able to outsmart Luigi on many levels by using the professor's knowledge about ghosts and other paranormal activities, against E. Gadd's will. Throughout the game, Luigi and the others find out that Red Eyed Boo is fully responsible for E. Gadd's disappearance but later in the game it becomes clear that King Boo was behind this all along.Now Luigi is supposed to rescue Professor E. Gadd from King Boo's hands, instead of rescuing his brother Mario (who may now sometimes accompany him on his journey to save the professor). Thus, making it a two-player game, with the possibility for two players to help each other out. That contradicts with the other two games, which are both build upon the ordinary and globally well known one-player story-mode. It is up to the player(s) to solve the mysteries of the upcoming new exiting mansions and save the professor.
My new goal with this game is again to create a livingly three-dimensional game for the Nintendo Switch, that would take the Luigi's Mansion ominous and creepy vibe to a whole new level. Just as the two new highly anticipated original Nintendo games, TLoZ: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey (still to be released), I think Luigi's Mansion deserves a substantial change within the game mechanics too, to create a game that is entirely different than any other game of the series. Luigi's Mansion has a lot of potential, and that is of course why I created this game here on Fantendo, because I felt like there could be more to what we've already seen to this day. I'd be the first in line to buy LM3 when Nintendo actually is releasing a new Luigi's Mansion game. It would be a dream come true to eventually work on such a beautiful game too in the future. Though I learned to let no one ever destroy those dreams. I'll get there someday, and so will you all too. ~(2017)
The four are examining all the rooms with care, and swiftly hear some ghosts laughing in the background. Following their voices into the central hall on the second floor, all the paintings suddenly start to move, giggle and glare at the four. E. Gadd, not scared at all by the quite disturbing moving pictures eventually ends up looking at at a Boo portrait, quite astonished by its movements. But this one seemed different, the Boo looks very realistic, almost touchable. In a faint you hear some Boos laughing in the back, but just as E. Gadd is leaning in too close, the Boo's eyes turn red and the professor eventually gets sucked up into the painting. In panic, his assistant jumps right after him into the painting, eventually getting lost too. Toadsworth freaks out and runs around in circles. Red Eyed Boo’s painting is still opened and sucks everything inside it that gets too close in its surroundings. Mario doesn’t hesitate one second and wants to jump inside the painting but eventually gets stopped by Toadsworth who is telling him that he is mad.
The portrait is dripping thick paint on the floor and is now acting like a portal throughout the two worlds; the Painted Veil, and the Evershade Valley. Mario and Luigi hear Toad and E. Gadd faintly scream for help. Right after the story intro, you’re once again allowed to walk through the museum on your own and you are given the choice to either enter the painting or not (although, eventually you should enter the painting because Toadsworth is not letting you leave the museum, unless you find both the professor and his assistant Toad and bring them back).The two golden greenies appear and are quite shocked themselves by the looks of the dripping portrait. Toadsworth gets scared and screams for Luigi’s help to get them out of his sight. The paranormal signals emitted by the paintings seem to affect the golden greenies and suddenly start to fly around in panick. Luigi and Mario both manage to capture each one of them inside their Poltergust, who both spit out a massive amount of coins and paper money. Luigi and Mario, already equipped with E. Gadd's newest invented Poltergust 7500 and Ternary Scream, step into the painting after having a motivational chat with Toadsworth. In the Painted Veil, Luigi and Mario are trying to look for the professor and his assistant Toad but end up following the wrong tracks, which are perfectly pointed out by the Boos. The brothers eventually get kicked out of another painting, hanging in another mansion. A Boo follows them, enters the painting again and then closes the painting, sealing it off with a painted version of E. Gadd’s screaming face. This is where the journey is about to start. Luigi wants to jump inside the painting to help E. Gadd, but jumps right through the canvas into another dirty room.

The Painters Residence
The Painters Residence is an overgrown mansion in the middle of the forest near the mountains. Though it has already been abandoned for more than a hundred years, some might say that someone is still living in this neglected mansion, because the lights go on and off at night. A group of painters came up with the idea to build a house in the middle of the forest, to find their peace. Because it's so calm and quiet in the forest, the painters would be able to create better paintings, not affected by everyday life. It is said that the community of painters who lived inside the mansion for many years, all went crazy after many unknown strange events. The paintings made by the painters within the mansion are known to represent the painters' minds throughout that time. What happened to the painters after these events is still a secret to everybody and they were nowhere to be found. A lot of easels and paintings are dropped in the backyard, all removed from their original rooms in the mansion.
