E3 2011: Luigi’s Mansion 2 announced for 3DS

Poor Luigi, he launched the GameCube with a cute game that nobody gave a chance. Sure it wasn’t the Mario launch game everyone wanted, and it got the GC off to a poor start, but Luigi's Mansion was a cool concept. Everyone thought it was the last time Luigi would star in his own game, that he’d never be free of Mario’s shadow. Then, in the shocking opening to the Nintendo press conference, Luigi’s Mansion 2 was revealed.

Looking very similar to the decade-old original, Weegee’s sucking up to ghosts all over a mansion, though we also spotted a mummy-filled crypt. Despite its familiar looks, it’s an entirely new game, with multiple mansions to explore. Perhaps Luigi will at long last strike out on his own.
