Digital Foundry’s latest project has seen them delve into the world of Luigi’s Mansion on the Nintendo 3DS. As you know, it is a remake of the beloved GameCube launch title on Nintendo’s dedicated handheld. The team at Digital Foundry have come away extremely impressed with the port by Grezzo and concludes by saying that “A lot of care and attention has gone into the game and it’s beautifully executed overall. You can read their full verdict on the game here.
“Grezzo has done a tremendous job in adapting the game to Nintendo’s aging portable system and in the end, has produced one of the best-looking games on the system. The controls are also well implemented. If you’re playing on a New 3DS, you get to use the nub just like the right stick on GameCube but this time, it can actually be inverted. You can also use the gyro feature to aim your vacuum up and down across all versions of 3DS hardware.”
“So, if you haven’t played Luigi’s Mansion or it’s been a while since you’ve played it this is a fantastic way to jump in. It’s a strange little conversion that almost feels like a side-make rather than a port – a game which makes changes to fit the hardware that often wind up looking better than the original even if it falls short in certain areas. If you’re still playing on 3DS, I’d recommend checking this one out – a lot of care and attention has gone into the game and it’s beautifully executed overall.”
