Luigi's Mansion 3 gets Multiplayer Pack Part 2 DLC months ahead of schedule

Luigi's Mansion 3's Multiplayer Pack Part 2 DLC was expected in the summer, but Nintendo has surprised everyone by deploying it today.


Nintendo has been on a tear lately when it comes to offering up content for its library of first-party Switch games. One game where an update wasn't expected was Luigi's Mansion 3. But with COVID-19 keeping everyone indoors, it looks like Nintendo expedited its schedule and has the Multiplayer Pack Part 2 DLC ready months ahead of schedule.

Luigi's Mansion 3 Multiplayer Pack 2

Luigi's Mansion 3's Multiplayer Pack Part 2 contains three new Luigi costumes, three new ScareScraper floor themes, six new ghosts, and new mini-games for ScreamPark mode. PuckStravaganza introduces a hockey-style mini-game, Floaty Frenzy will take teams to an obstacle-filled water course, and Desperate Measures will have players competing over sand. Your Luigi won't look any better than he does with his new outfits. The Amazing Luigi dresses him as a magician, Cap'n Weegee gives him a pirate look, and PaleontoLuigist gives him an archaeologist look.

The deployment of today's Multiplayer Pack is a significant development, just because Nintendo has now burned through both Luigi's Mansion 3 DLCs way ahead of schedule. The first DLC was supposed to be out on April 30, but released back on March 3. This second DLC was supposed to be out around July 30, but has released three months ahead of its projected date.

Both of Luigi's Mansion 3's Multiplayer Packs are available from the Nintendo eShop for $9.99. Are you picking up Luigi's Mansion 3 for the first time? If you're trying out the game's single-player, be sure to check out our full guide and walkthrough to help you out.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
