Many Nintendo consoles launch alongside a Mario title, but GameCube shook things up a bit with Luigi's Mansion on day one. The ghost-catching game was a hit, and fans have been begging for a remake on a newer platform for years. Luigi's faithful followers finally got their wish recently, as the most recent Nintendo Direct presentation revealed Luigi's Mansion for Nintendo 3DS. So how does this handheld version stack up to the original?

Thanks to a handy comparison video compiled by the good folks at GameXplain, you can judge for yourself. The above footage makes the GameCube version seem considerably smoother than its handheld counterpart, but 3DS games always tend to look more pixelated in captured footage than on screen, so it'll likely look a little more polished in your hands. Which version do you prefer?
