Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon is being remastered for the Switch

With the Nintendo Switch well in its twilight years, many fans were wondering what kind of announcements were in store for the most recent Nintendo Direct. Interestingly, the Direct focused quite heavily on Mario and co. – with a remaster of the 3DS Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon being revealed.

Releasing some time in 2024, Nintendo announced that “a visually enhanced version of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, originally released on Nintendo 3DS, is currently in development and coming to #NintendoSwitch.”

Few details have been shared so far, but based on the footage, the game looks to be much more than a simple remaster. Of course, it is hard to tell how high quality the assets and models for the original Dark Moon are due to it being on the 3DS (which has a screen resolution of 400×240p).

Still, this seems to be closer to a Metroid Prime situation than a mere upscale. Hopefully we get to see more from the game (including which studio is developing it) sooner rather than later.
