Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon was initially supposed to be released in North America sometime this fall, but this morning, Nintendo of America announced that the game has been delayed into 2013.


Specifically, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon will be released sometime during the first half of 2013, although NOA did not provide an exact release date. No reason was provided for the delay.

    is Luigis Mansion a good IP ?

    • riceisnice

       Why yes, it is. My online experience is the fastest it can be thanks to Luigi’s Mansion brand internet.

    • Shadowman

      Yeah you should try it when it comes out!

       No it isn’t a good IP its a Great IP, its one of Nintendo’s most original games and one of the best 5 games on Gamecube.

    Hopefully they are adding more content to the game. I loved the first one and my only problem with it was it’s length. If they are adding more mansions and giving it more polish then i’m okay with this…I do think they missed an opportunity by not releasing it on Halloween though 

    • Well apparently the game already has 7 or 8 mansions you could explore in this one compared to the only one in the original game so.  I honestly think it got delayed so Nintendo had something to release in the first half of 2013 they haven’t really announced a whole lot for the 3DS yet for 2013 so its a possibility as to why it got delayed.  Atleast Paper Mario is still coming out this year.

      I agree that there was an opportunity lost with the lack of October release…however, this might get pushed even further as we have seen with some Nintendo IPs to make sure polish is right.

      I just wonder how it will feel without having a 2nd analog stick like the Gamecube controller did. I hope the tug o’ wars still have that feel to them.

  • Dang.

  • Shadowman

    Ah man.

  • While this is sad… at least it means I have a little more money to spend on the other great games.

  • Herok♞

    At this rate I hope it doesn’t turn into Luigi’s Mansion:Versus Forever because it was supposed to be out in 2011.

  • Colin Tosh

    I think Nintendo is spreading releases out still. They’ve done this since 3DS came out. Just a guess though.

    Too bad that it lost the october/november release window, that could help to the IP a lot. But still I hope that it make good numbers.
