Official Luigi’s Mansion 3 Release Date Announced

A couple days ago, we covered the story that Luigi’s Mansion 3‘s release date was leaked by Amazon Mexico. According to them, the game was set for release on October 4. Today, Nintendo Tweeted out that October 31 would be the official release date of the game. In retrospect, this makes a lot of sense. It’s a great move to release the spooky title featuring our scared, green mascot on Halloween.



This is a great example of how important it is to differentiate between a leak and an announcement. All leaks are meant to be unofficial peaks into the industry. Amazon Mexico has correctly leaked release dates and new games in the past, which made this seem like a sure shot. However, no matter the source, leaks and rumors always need to be trodden carefully.


Unfortunately, this announcement puts us nearly a whole month later on the release date than the leak led us to believe, a big bummer for all of the Luigi’s Mansion fans out there. The good news is that the last two months of the year are really stacking up to be something special, and now you have an extra month to save up for it. Luigi’s Mansion 3, Death Stranding, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Doom Eternal, Stadia, and even the final episode of Life Is Strange 2 all show up in the final 60 days or so of the year. I can already feel my wallet getting lighter. There are even some indie titles set to release this year that we still have no release dates for, like The Red Lantern. Games like this could round out the year for us as well.


Luigi’s Mansion 3 serves as a great addition to this list. If you’re wondering about gameplay or the experience of playing Luigi’s Mansion 3, I could start going into detail about it, but it’s much better to check out our E3 show floor first impressions where we cover our playthrough of Luigi’s Mansion 3 and tons of other games from E3 2019.


The game is set for an exclusive release of the Nintendo Switch.
