Luigi’s Mansion 3 updated to Version 1.4.0 yesterday, and with the update came the second installment of the Multiplayer Pack DLC. The DLC consists of three new ScreamPark minigames, three stylish additional outfits, and three themed floors for ScareScraper mode. I’m most interested in the ScreamPark minigames, but extra floor themes really do go a long way in amping up the ScareScraper.
The new ScreamPark minigames in the Luigi’s Mansion 3 Multiplayer Pack Part 2 include PuckStravaganza (AKA haunted hockey), Float Frenzy (a frantic floaty obstacle course), and the intriguing Desperate Measures (fight ghosts and push sand around to weigh a scale in your favor). They sound like a lot of fun – enough to send me right back to an already impressive multiplayer suite for which I sang some high praises in my review.
ScareScraper is the star of the show for many who enjoy some cooperative fun in Luigi’s Mansion 3. Multiplayer Pack Part 2’s three new ScareScraper floor variants, which will randomly appear throughout normal playthroughs, include a dinosaur museum, a house full of magic tricks, and a pirate floor. Some new themed ghosts are also prowling these creeky, creepy floors. Not to be outdone, Luigi’s got three new costumes that all correspond with the new floor types. All in all, it’s a pretty solid package for $10.
Will you be grabbing the latest round of multiplayer DLC for Luigi’s Mansion 3? If you never tried out the game’s various multiplayer modes, I strongly recommend it. Going through the campaign co-op with a buddy is a pleasant experience, and you might find yourself surprised at just how addictive some of the minigames can be. ScreamPark is basically a condensed Luigi’s Mansion version of Mario Party that has plenty of exciting minigames that are easy to pick up and play. Finally, don’t get me started on the merits of a heart-pounding, adrenaline-fueled ScareScraper run.
