Nintendo's Kensuke Tanabe met up with the GameSpot gang for an interview about Luigi's Mansion 3, and some interesting tidbits were shared. Check out a few comments from the interview below.
On Luigi's Mansion 3 being a moment of decisive change for Luigi, making him more self-assured
That's a great observation because that is exactly the reason why we wanted to have the whole gang in there. He's going to rescue Mario. It's good.
On Luigi one day stealing the spotlight from Mario
I think Mario is a traditional hero type whereas Luigi is Luigi. We think that, regardless, he'll go in his own direction.
On the amount of floors in Luigi's Mansion 3
Right now there are 17 floors
On a desire to move onto new projects when a game is wrapped, rather than constantly update with new content
Even when I'm creating something I'm constantly thinking of the next thing. Even as we're wrapping up the development of Luigi Mansion 3, Next Level Games is like, what about [Luigi's Mansion 4]? What's going to come after a hotel?
