As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

20. 'Luigi's Mansion 3' (Switch)

by Judy on Jan. 27, 2019 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

Like the two games before it, Luigi's Mansion 3 is centered around Luigi's adventures in haunted mansions where he has to deal with all kinds of supernatural beings.

Joseph Doyle: I'm just so glad this series still exists! The whole series is such an interesting property. While it takes the comedy and haunted aspects from "Ghostbusters" and the like, the gameplay is like nothing else I've ever seen. Nintendo throws its charm around with this series, one of the few developers I'd wholeheartedly trust to make the creepy and scary palatable to everyone. Plus, Luigi deserves this game and so much more since he's such a strange, loveable guy! 

Andreas Salmen: It took a while until Luigi finally got his own 3D adventure, but when Luigi's Mansion finally dropped on the GameCube, it instantly connected with audiences. A charming and different adventure game that incorporated everything from exploration to inventive combat, Luigi's Mansion 3 is possibly the closest we'll get to a good Ghostbusters-style game. While it's still going strong on the 3DS with a sequel and a remake, the return to a main Nintendo console is exciting, and I can't wait what the Switch's capabilities will mean for the third and long-awaited entry in the series.

Fran Soto: With the previous installments of Luigi's Mansion found on the GameCube and Nintendo DS, it's quite exciting to see the "other" Mario brother shine again in his own game. The Switch exclusive plans to bring back the puzzling mystery from before with all new features. It's even more exciting that we'll be able to play Luigi's Mansion 3 on the home console and in portable mode. It's looking like another excellent title to the Switch's stellar line-up.
