Luigi's Mansion 3 multiplayer DLC now available

The Multiplayer Pack DLC released ahead of schedule and adds new outfits and minigames to Luigi's Mansion 3.

The first DLC expansion for Luigi’s Mansion 3, the Multiplayer Pack - Part 1, is now available for purchase. The news of the DLC’s release comes as something of a surprise as it wasn’t expected to be released until April 30. Speeding things up a bit, Nintendo dropped the Multiplayer Pack early on March 3 to the excitement of many Luigi’s Mansion 3 players.

The first DLC expansion for Luigi’s Mansion 3 adds new multiplayer features to both ScreamPark and ScareScraper modes, along with new costumes and customization options. In ScareScraper mode, three new costumes were added for Luigi like Mummigi, The Green Knight, and Groovigi.

Not only do the costumes give Luigi new style options to choose from, they also impact the look of the floors which support matching themes and Battle Ghosts. For ScreamPark, the DLC introduces three new minigames including Tricky Ghost Brawl, Dodge Brawl, and River Bank.

Of the three, Dodge Brawl looks particularly fun as it’s a play on dodgeball using the Poltergust G-00 to pick up and toss red balls.

When you score a hit, you deal damage, with each player having three hearts at the start of the match. As you’d expect, the last Luigi standing wins. Something to keep in mind is the cost of the DLC at $9.99 (USD). Anyone who pre-purchases will have access not only to Part 1 which was released on March 3, but Part 2 once it’s released.

Additionally – and this is perhaps the most important feature – buying the DLC gives you access to a new flashlight called Flashlight Type-P. With this flashlight, you can project the world’s cutest Polterpup wherever you shine your light. As of right now, Part 2 of the DLC for Luigi’s Mansion 3 is set to release on July 31 of this year.

Although, seeing as how Part 1 released nearly two months ahead of schedule, we have a feeling that Part 2 may release early as well. Finally, Nintendo dropped a patch (1.3.0) for Luigi’s Mansion 3 alongside the DLC with the full patch notes listed below for your convenience.
