Luigi's Mansion: Haunted Halloween Party (Luigi's Mansion 3 in Japan) was released on the Nintendo 3DS. It was developed by Nintendo EAD.


It's Halloween Night, and the ghosts of Evershade Valley are setting up a surprise party for Luigi when a figure with red eyes comes in, and using the Poutergust 5000, sucks up all the ghosts and runs off.

Luigi is at home, when there's a knock at the door. He walks over opens it up, and finds Professor E. Gadd. "Luigi! Bad news, someone has broken into my lab and stole nearly ALL of my gadetries! All I have left is this DSi, or Dual Scream Investigator, if you will. Also, there appears to be NO ghosts in Evershade Valley. Someone must've used the Poultergust 5000 on them. I don't know what to do, except go to the sight of the 'kidnapping'."

Luigi and the Prof. go to the tent in which the Halloween Party was being set up, and find Toad. "I came to the Halloween Party, but nobody was here, I was going to call Mario, but he's not answering his phone!"

Professor E. Gadd replies with, "It MUST be King Boo once more! He never liked the ghosts of Evershade Valley, so he got rid of them, long enough for us to distract them, and now he's kidnapped your brother, Luigi!"

"It's not nice to go acusing people of doing things without proof." King Boo says as he enters. "I didn't do it! I don't know where Mario is, although I wish he was a portrait, hanging on my wall."

Luigi and Professor E. Gadd then find the Poultergust 5000, hiding in a corner, but the vaccum bag is empty, aside from the Toad suffed in it. "M-m-m-MARIO! He d-d-did th-this! But-but, there's something d-different about him. He has red eyes! C-cold r-red eyes!"

"I know what it is! A Grouchy Possesor! Exactly!" Professor E. Gadd says. "Not possible, the Dark Moon is still in the sky, so the Grouchy Possesors aren't Grouchy right now." King Boo replies.


Luigi's Mansion: Haunted Halloween Party is the first in the series to be Open World and Non-linear. You can do the mansions in any order, as there are 6.

Because the ghosts of Evershade have been kidnapped, the Main enemies are Dark Boos. There are many differen t types including Normal, Strong, and Speedy.
