Nintendo UK has shared a new trailer for Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD titled “A rude awakening”. The two and a half minute long trailer is basically the entire opening cut scene that players will experience when they first start the game. Check it out now to see how far the new version’s graphics have come since the original on 3DS! Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD will be available on Switch on June 27, 2024.

For an even better look at how this Switch revamp compares to the original, you can see a video below that puts today’s trailer side-by-side with footage straight from the 3DS version. You might be surprised with just how much has changed!

It’s time to clean house! Join the faint-of-heart hero Luigi on a spooky quest in Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD for Nintendo Switch.

In this visually enhanced adventure, you’ll visit the chilling locales of the eerie Evershade Valley, a place where until recently, the peculiar Dark Moon hung in the sky. According to ghost researcher Professor E.Gadd, it pacified the ghosts of the valley…that is until one night when the Dark Moon mysteriously shattered! Now, the place is screaming and teeming with troublemaking ghosts! Can Luigi recover the missing pieces of the Dark Moon and restore peace to the valley?

Luckily, Professor E. Gadd has equipped Luigi with the right tools for the job, like the enemy-stunning Strobulb and the trusty Poltergust 5000, which can vacuum up ghosts, objects or interact with the environment. Luigi’s paranormal escapades will take him to all sorts of places, including a former plant research lab, a broken-down clock factory and an icy, snow-covered mine, just to name a few.

Up to four players can team up to take on the challenges of the ScareScraper, a haunted building teeming with ghosts and challenges not found in the main adventure. Recruit your fellow ghost hunters to scale the terrifying tower via local wireless play or online.

We need the first entry to be playable on Switch, it would be a shame to have it lost forever
