Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon has local and online multiplayer

3DS exclusive Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon will come with a co-operative multiplayer mode, Nintendo has revealed.

The original game - a launch title for the rather wonderful but sadly short lived GameCube - was a single player only title. In it, Luigi went searching for his brother, Mario, who had been trapped inside a spooky old house. Using the "Poltergust" vacuum cleaner, you slurped up spirits like a ramshackle Ghostbuster.

As well as an all-new story and mansion map to explore, a new Hunter Mode has been added to the 3DS sequel so you can play with friends. You'll work together to trap ghosts and keep each other safe as you ascend haunted towers through 5, 10 or an epic 25 floors to defeat the boss spook at the end. It's similar to the Luigi mini-game in the absolutely bonkers Wii U launch title Nintendo Land.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon was announced back in 2011, shortly after the 3DS was released. It'll reach the UK in March.
