The Nintendo Switch has been a pleasant surprise for Nintendo. It sells well around the world. Despite it not being as powerful as the Playstation 4 or Xbox One, the reason the Switch does so well is the games. Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the next in line of Nintendo innovation. The game follows Luigi’s Mansion 2 on the Nintendo 3DS. This time around the locale is a hotel that Luigi and his friends accept invitations to. King Boo is revealed as a the villain that set all of them up. Luigi and his trusty Poltergust G-00 have to save his friends and defeat the King.

The more linear structure of Luigi’s Mansion 2 is gone in favor of a more open-ended gameplay experience. Each floor of the hotel is going to have a different theme. The floors are going to have different atmospheres and aesthetics. In addition to the single-player experience, there is going to be a multiplayer mode.

This mode is called ScareScraper. It’ll be a time trial mode where you compete with up to eight players to clear objectives on different floors of a building. The game releases on Halloween and will be ready to provide you with a new gaming experience and spooky locales.

If you remember playing the original Link’s Awakening on the Game Boy when you were younger. You’re going to love the upcoming remake on the Switch. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is more than a simple remake of the beloved Game Boy game. Nintendo is adding content to the original game, updating the art style, and making it available for a new generation of gamers.

The game is different than the style of Breath of the Wild. This game is from an isometric point of view like the original NES game or A Link to the Past. It follows Link as he wakes up on Koholint Island. From there he has to collect mystical musical instruments to make his way home. The fun of this is that Koholint Island is inhabited by enemies familiar and some unfamiliar to Link. Goombas and Piranha Plants of Super Mario fame also inhabit the island.

As you finish the game’s dungeons, you’ll unlock them for your Chamber. This is a customizable area where you can make your own dungeons for players to plow through. In addition to this, there’s Amiibo support. The game releases on September 20th.
