Next Level Games Says Luigi Acts Like Mr. Bean In Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon

Film Title: Mr Bean's HolidayIn an interview with Polygon, Next Level Games director Bryce Holliday said the humor found in Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon was inspired by Mr. Bean, which is a British comedy program. According to Holliday, Luigi acts like the program’s main character, Mr. Bean, who’s played by comedian Rowan Atkinson, in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game. Luigi and Mr. Bean are apparently similar in that they both are hesitant heroes while being unlucky fools. Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon launches in a week.

“Watching Luigi is kind of like watching a Mr. Bean episode. You know he’s going to get into trouble, but you’re kind of surprised about where it’s going to come from.

“We did watch a lot of Mr. Bean in the beginning to get reference for the character animations, so he’s kind of like that hapless fool and reluctant hero. He’s trying to live his life, but you know what the joke is before he does.”

      1. I keep seeing you use this word… “manly…” how the hell can you play a game that’s “manly?” News flash, kid… there’s no such thing as a manly game. If you play video games, you are most likely a nerd. I can freely admit that I am a nerd and I play video games. Playing video games is NEVER manly, no matter how many terrorists you shoot in the head or how many hookers you bang. There is no such thing as manly video games.

        Do you understand what I’m telling you, Billy?

  1. but Mr Bean is a fool & a idiot, people laugh at him & not with him.

    recently with all Nintendo games, the first things i hear about a new game makes me really interested & as time goes on & i hear more about it through updated news & media, the worse the game sounds.

    i hope Nintendo have not decided to go down the path of making games the Peter Molyneux way !

    if they have they will be making games for the X720 & Ps4 sooner than we thought.

    1. Mr. bean is actually a very loveable character cause he isn’t your average person. and you think this game will be bad cause of this? the cutscenes i saw from mansion 2 were really great lol. it give the game a character you know.

      1. Who the fuck is trolling me??? Aeolus is this you!!!! I have only ever ONCE said I dont recall saying that. Sickr or Alba ban me. Cause this is fucked up. Nobody uses my name but me.

        1. It’s not Aeolus; he doesn’t stoop that low.

          If you look at some previous articles, you’d see the same person under his actual name. Yes, he’s stupid enough to forget to change his gravitar.

    1. Dat high jump, though.
      He was one of my favorites just because of how goofy-yet-useful that move was.
      I really should get TTYD back into my collection soon. I miss it.

    1. I was never really into Mr Bean; the Johnny English movies were the most interesting things Rowan Atkinson has done in my eyes.

  2. Hey out off topic…

    Anyone else getting the Limited Time Pikachu 3DS XL? I have a Cosmo Black 3DS but i’m getting the Pikachu 3DS XL!! :D

    1. I AM! I also have the cosmo black 3DS. And I’m DYING to get the Pikachu 3DS XL. I borrowed the money from my brother so I can get it at Target on March 24th. Yay for us!!

  3. I wouldn’t know what to think if he played Luigi in a live-action movie. Probably too quiet in demeanor to do so though, considering how loud and out there Luigi needs to be, lol.

  4. too be honest i kinda turned me a bit off as well, but i’m still excited. Haven’t been excited this much since Pokemon back and white was announced, which is saying something.

  5. Mr.Bean is alot more funnier than most american sitcoms which are basically all about alcohol, sex and other nonsense…
