The video game Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD, a remaster of the original version exclusively released for Nintendo 3DS in 2013, will arrive on Nintendo Switch at some point in 2024, although the exact release date is yet to be determined. While there are still a few months until the title becomes available, the trailers revealed by Nintendo so far have allowed YouTuber GameXplain to conduct a comprehensive technical comparison that highlights the differences between the original version and the update for the hybrid console.

The most evident improvement in Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD lies in the increased resolution, which allows for better appreciation of environmental details and eliminates jagged edges. Furthermore, certain textures have been enhanced to better suit a Nintendo Switch game, although it is noticeable that the foundation was originally designed for a less powerful handheld console.

Regarding the Nintendo 3DS version, our analysis emphasized that the game offers more mansions and is longer than its predecessor. Although the missions are somewhat repetitive and lack originality, there are still differences in terms of what can be done. On the other hand, the loss of charm and personality in the ghosts does not significantly affect the overall quality of the game.

Lastly, we highlight the highly appealing cooperative multiplayer mode that Luigi’s Mansion 2 offers, although it is limited by the communication functions between users. This highlights the need for Nintendo to expedite its development of online systems in order to match the quality of services and features offered by its competitors.
