Nintendo took the wraps off a new title for its Switch console today: Luigi’s Mansion 3. The third installment in the series about Mario’s not-so-heroic brother vacuuming up poltergeists in a quest to find his brother is coming sometime next year. Nintendo showed off a very short series of gameplay snippets in the opening moment’s of today’s Nintendo Direct announcement.

The original Luigi’s Mansion, which came out in 2001 for the GameCube, wasn’t a super groundbreaking title, but it was the very first game in the Mario universe to star a playable Luigi since the enigmatic MS-DOS education title Mario is Missing from way back in 1993.

Nintendo developed a proper Luigi’s Mansion sequel more than a decade later, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, for the Nintendo 3DS, a remake of which is coming out in North America and Europe next month. Now, it looks like Nintendo is ready to release a proper Luigi-focused console game. We’ll likely learn more about the game, and see more of it in action, starting next year.


Luigi is not dead!


We thought the same about Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense
