Way back during the March Nintendo Direct, we learned that GameCube classic Luigi's Mansion is coming to Nintendo 3DS. The game's sequel is already a 3DS exclusive, and soon fans will be able to play both games on the same device. At the time, Nintendo only confirmed that the game was coming sometime this year, but today we have some more exact release dates.
Gamescom is in full swing in Cologne, Germany right now, and Nintendo (along with many other developers) has taken the opportunity to make some announcements. During the convention, Nintendo revealed that Luigi's Mansion will make its 3DS debut on October 12th in North America. European gamers can join in on the fun a week later on October 19th.
