Get spooked with your old friend, Luigi, as he navigates his way through
the creepy nooks and crannies of Luigi's Mansion™, available exclusively
for the new NINTENDO GAMECUBE™. This one-player action adventure is
the first title to star Mario's younger brother Luigi, a beloved character
who has made appearances in Nintendo video games since 1993.
The fun begins on a proverbial dark and stormy night, as Luigi investigates
a mysterious mansion he's inherited. Instead of a relaxing retreat,
he finds a host of howling spirits. Our hero ventures through countless
rooms filled with side-splitting spooks, trying to vacuum up the ghoulish
ghosts to clean the house of its unwelcome visitors. With the help of
a new doctor friend, Luigi must capture ghosts and turn them into paintings.
Throughout the adventure, players watch Luigi creep, cower and cry in
fright as the roaming spirits try to scare him out of his wits.
Luigi's Mansion shows off the powerful graphics capabilities of the
NINTENDO GAMECUBE technology to create an immersive world that is filled
with intriguing visuals. For example, the game features real-time lighting
and shading created by Luigi's flashlight, as well as transparent ghosts
- effects that could be created only on NINTENDO GAMECUBE.
"You really feel the emotions of the characters and see unprecedented
levels of detail, down to ghoulish reflections in a mirror," says Peter
Main, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Nintendo of America
Inc. "With Luigi taking the front-and-center role in this title, players
will quickly get into the spirited fun of the game."
Luigi's Mansion is scheduled to launch in November 2001.
