Luigi's Mansion 3 will not support amiibo, has nothing to announce on Nintendo Labo VR or DLC at this time

Nope, nope, and nope

Nintendo was full of non-answers for Luigi's Mansion 3 at E3 2019. In an interview with GameXplain, Nintendo's Nate Bihldorff did confirm that the game won't support amiibo. As far as Nintendo Labo VR support, Bihldorff had nothing to say. The same goes for DLC, so we have no idea what's going on there either. We'll just have to hang tight on those fronts and see if Nintendo has anymore concrete answers to share moving forward.

Please no DLC. Let’s return to the good old days of complete games in the cart day 1.

That's one good lookin' Luigi model that got in that game though

I just don't see how a game like this needs DLC, but then again it is 2019 and times have changed.

I don't think so much it needs as so much they wish to add. I think the Scarescraper could have skins, or different modes added post launch.

Well, there is a right way to do DLC. That's when you get a complete experience at release and then the studio continues to work on additional worthwhile content that they release later for people who want more. It's unfortunately rare, but it's very welcome when it is done this way.

How many games has Nintendo bothered to force amiibo and dlc to players I wonder....

Ok...and how many of them are forced down your throat to the point that it hinders the game experience?

I honestly can’t think of any (aside from something amiibo-centric like AC: Amiibo Festival) that absolutely need the Amiibo or that is made worse by them. At least every game in my library has been all good and well to play without Amiibo.

My point exactly. I mean seriously, the hate the amiibo gets is really sad.

Ah, your initial post just ”sounded” more negative than that. :D

So no Gooigi amiibo? Avoid the cash cow, I guess.

-Amiibo is almost dead so not a loss
-Labo VR isn't really great after 5 minutes so thats not a huge loss either (outside of the built in game)
-Hopefully they dont think about DLC until the game is out. DLC is great as an add on, not as content which could have been in the game in the first place, as always.

I still like if they make figurines for popular new characters.

Labo VR seems like a prototype to build VR games, maybe.

I agree, though with meeting deadlines I see how some things can slip through the cracks, like Mario Maker online friend mode.

At the very least Nintendo does offer both paid and free DLC. That way both the consumer and them can get the notion of what should be paid and what should not.

So far IMO the only bad practices with this have been, the amiibo missions in Splatoon 1, the cave of shadows Wolf Link, the Metroid Samus Returns art gallery and extra difficulty mode, more or less the Breath of the Wild Amiibo costumes, and moreso the quality of life features and having both DLC packs just being sold through a season pass. Maybe I'm forgetting something else, but that's my count so far.

Well, there's also Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival, which was a disaster all around. (Desert Island Escape should've been the central part of the game.)

I think that one escaped my memory, because I can't think of any outlet that liked it. It's not even that is a decent game with amiibo requirements. So no lose there I suppose.

This is good news in my book.
