Nintendo Download: Friendly Ghosts Turn Fiendish in Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD, Out Now!

Among other new additions, the Nintendo Switch welcomes in some ghostly action this week, with Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD.

Helloooooo… ?

Porting over the 3DS’ Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD arrives on the Switch this week. Actually landing on the console today, the new version of the game is basically the same title that was last seen on Nintendo’s handheld in 2013, just with a bit of a visual bump.

It’s also not the only big name arriving this week, as Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble and Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition also land. The former is the latest in Sega’s long-running roller, bringing fans a ton of customization options, as well as 200 stages to play, a new spin-dash move to make use of, and 16 player online play.

As for Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition, that’s exactly what you think it is, bringing the now classic title back around for modern consoles. It has visual upgrades in store for fans, plus some additional modes. Not exactly BG&E2, but at least it’s something to play for those who’ve been patiently waiting.
