There’s been quite a lot of Nintendo NX rumors circulating recently. This new one suggests that the platform will launch with Luigi’s Mansion 3.
The rumor was picked up by DualPixels and suggests that the next Luigi’s Mansion will show off what graphics the NX is capable of. According to their source, Next Level Games was inspired by the American commercial for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. They wanted to create something with the same graphic fidelity. Apparently they are pretty damn close.
According to Geno, the man behind the rumor, one developer said, “It’s going to cause arguments on the internet whether it’s a bullsh*t or not despite us developers knowing you can achieve something like on the current hardware specs.”
The game is said to use a lot of lighting techniques to create a “living 3D cartoon movie” look. To see this level of graphics already, look no further than the upcoming Ratchet & Clank game coming to PS4. If Luigi’s Mansion is supposed to look anything like that, you can sign us up.
Combining with a previous rumor from Geno, it will also showcase the haptic feedback in the analog sticks. When Luigi is trying to capture a ghost, the analog sticks will resist movement.
Previously, Geno has been behind many recent rumors including Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Nintendo NX details. In the past, his rumors have proved accurate with franchises including Pokemon, Castlevania, and Kingdom Hearts. However, he has also been proven wrong with many others. Because of this, we highly suggest you look at these rumors as nothing more than possibilities. If they turn out to be accurate, we’ll be the first to let you know.
With Luigi rarely getting his time in the spotlight, we would be eager to play Luigi’s Mansion 3. Let’s cross our fingers in hopes that this rumor comes true.
