Gamecube classic Luigi's Mansion is finally, yes finally, getting a sequel. Mario's brother gets the spotlight in this 3DS game that once again sends Luigi into the heart of a haunted mansion. I think most people were shocked when Nintendo announced Luigi's Mansion 2 at E3, but you may be even more surprised by how fun it is.
"Almost as impressive as the engaging presentation, was the game’s solid controls. Like its predecessor, the sequel sees Luigi stunning ghosts with a bright light, then sucking them up with his Proton Pack-like vacuum cleaner, dubbed the Poltergust 5000. The system’s shoulder buttons control the deadly Dustbutser, with the right trigger sucking and the left blowing. Some minor tweaks, such as a button prompt encouraging quicker capture and the light working more like a flashbang than traditional beam, refine the classic controls while also tailoring them to the 3DS. The single analog pad means you can’t move Luigi and the vacuum independently, but this didn’t seem to detract from the intuitiveness during my brief time at the controls."
