As Gematsu has pointed out on Twitter, Luigi’s Mansion 3 has been rated by the Game Rating and Administration Committee in South Korea. (It’s been given the equivalent of an ESRB “E” rating.) That suggests the game will be releasing sooner rather than later, which is really exciting for all of us. We will almost definitely receive info of the game’s release date at E3 2019.
This isn’t the first time lately that Korea has spilled the beans on a pending game release. Last month, their ratings administration revealed that Octopath Traveler would be coming to PC, and Square Enix subsequently confirmed the game will arrive on PC on June 7.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 was first announced during a Nintendo Direct back on Sept. 13, 2018. It was a short teaser, and we’ve received more or less no updates since then. Fans are hungry to learn more, a lot more.
Prior to this, a Luigi’s Mansion port came to Nintendo 3DS back on October 12, 2018. Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon came out way back on March 24, 2013. It’s kind of wild to think it’s been six years already since Dark Moon came out, as it was a genuinely great game. It had no business having an online multiplayer mode that was so fun!
Stay tuned for a big update on Luigi’s Mansion 3 at E3 2019.
