Luigi is often in the shadow of his better-known brother Mario, but the green-clad plumber still has quite a few fans in the Nintendo player community. In Luigi's Mansion 3, he has to face his worst fears in a haunted hotel.
The Nintendo Switch game is a mixture of puzzles and jump 'n' run. What was intended as a relaxing holiday turns out to be a trap by King Boo, who lures Luigi, Mario and their friends to the hotel so he can kidnap them. As Mario and the others disappear, Luigi has to go in search of them.
He has to face many puzzles and skill tests as he progresses through the 17 floors of the hotel. Fortunately he has faithful companions and a few useful tools, such as a vacuum, to defend himself against ghosts and other types of mischief.
And if Luigi can't handle something, there's always Fluigi, his liquid doppelgaenger made of green goo.
In single-player mode, players can toggle between the two characters, for example if they need to slip through some bars. Multiplayer mode allows eight players to play together online, or with up to four consoles locally.
Luigi's Mansion 3 is suitable for players aged 6 and older and costs US$60 (RM250). – dpa
