This spooky fun adventure, originally released for the Nintendo 3DS™ system, is now visually enhanced in HD on the Nintendo Switch™ system.

Friendly ghosts turned fiendish—sounds like a job for Luigi! – The Dark Moon that hangs over Evershade Valley seems to have a calming effect on the ghosts that reside there. The quirky Professor E. Gadd has been studying the friendly spirits. But when the Dark Moon suddenly breaks apart and falls into the valley below, the once-friendly ghosts become hostile. Luigi must stumble into action and summon his courage to restore the Dark Moon to its rightful place in the sky.

Tackle the ScareScraper together – You and up to three players* can team up to take on the challenges of the ScareScraper, a haunted building teeming with ghosts and challenges not found in the main adventure. Recruit your fellow ghost hunters to scale the terrifying tower locally* or online**.
