Luigi, more muddled than ever, received a map saying he had won (again) a high-tech and luxury mansion. This time the Italian does not fall into this trap, and return to sleep. In the late afternoon, he is awakened by a Toad the warning that Princess Daisy was lost in the same mansion that he had supposedly won.

Once there, Elvin Gadd Luigi asks about what happened while the leads drive to the professor's lab. Luigi explains that Toad had spoken, which also went to the lab with him. At the end of the meeting, as dusk, they decide to go to the new mansion, but E.Gadd decides to take with Luigi its new inventions: The Poltergeist 7000, the Trial Scream and a flashlight with energy to spare. Then, on another drive, the characters finally arrive to the "new" mansion; It was so huge like no other, more giant was the same: it was just a wall of so big, it can be compared to a prison, cutting the parking lot. Luigi is horrified by the size of the mansion and pronounced "Daisy" in low, husky tone. The three characters, after passing the gate without any guard, and open the gate of the mansion, approach slowly to the window; I could see a dark and haunted atmosphere, almost full of ghosts. Horrified, Luigi decides to go alone open the door of the mansion, more slowly, even as if to spy something, and turn on the flashlight to see better; suddenly, the plumber is frightened by a kind of whistle, half trembling and frightening, like the Luigi calls "the Best Corner of Princess Daisy."
