Luigi’s Mansion Cheats, Codes, Cheat Codes, Walkthrough, Guide, FAQ, Unlockables for Nintendo 3DS

Luigi’s Mansion is a classic Nintendo game originally released on the Gamecube in 2001. Clearly feeling a little bit nostalgic, Nintendo remade this classic game in 2018 for the 3DS and packed it full with new improvements. Thankfully the story and gameplay remained true to the original in this spooky take on the Super Mario Bros. universe. So grab your vacuum and your guts and head into Luigi’s haunted mansion.

True to the original Luigi’s Mansion is a top-down third-person action-adventure game featuring Luigi as the protagonist rather than Mario. Having inherited a spooky old mansion Luigi goes to explore the house when Mario is kidnapped and forced into a painting by evil ghosts. Forced to free him, Luigi must take on the ghosts of the manor with nothing but a flashlight, his wits, and a magical vacuum cleaner to clear away the cobwebs of this spooky evil.

Other Luigi’s Mansion Games in the Series

Luigi‘s Mansion is a fairly short game series in an otherwise very large video game IP. Seen more as a spooky Halloween special of a game series rather than its own unique thing.

“A” rank

To obtain an “A” rank, get all the gold mice, catch all the blue ghosts, get both gold diamonds, and collect as much money as possible. You need $100,000,000 to get an “A”.

Change vacuum power

There are three different medals you can collect to change the powers of the Poltergust 3000 vacuum cleaner. They are the Fire, Ice, and Water medals. When you collect the Fire Medal, you can suck up ghosts that have a ring of fire around the health hearts. Also, you can press L to spray fire from your vacuum to light candles and hit ghosts with an ice health meter. When you collect the Water Medal, you can extinguish flames that are too powerful for your vacuum to put out. Also, you can press L to spray water.

Mario calls

When you press A, Luigi will call “Mario!”. The more damage Luigi has taken, the more desperate his call for Mario will be.

Hidden Boo picture

Although you cannot pull off the projection room screen, you can make it change. Give it a tug with the Poltergust 3000. If you are persistent, you will reveal a huge picture of a Boo. There is another hidden Boo picture in the first-floor bathroom. Vacuum at the poster with the word “Monster” on it. A picture of a Boo will appear.
