Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS) Review


“Nintendo has never been closer to crafting a full-on Walt Disney-level creation than they have here. Luigi’s stubby run up stairs, cautious walking cycle, and heroic playfulness are all genuine acts with purpose towards forming an identity. His words are a mumbled few and actions many, a physical performance that creates a bumbling oaf with the heart of a hero. Luigi hums theme music nervously as he trots, breaking the fourth wall barriers that video games themselves do, and mimics a shower as he stands tall under water pipes. The Mushroom Kingdom has always been alive, but here, Nintendo has created a centralized hero with more dynamic pep than superstar Mario himself.”
