Luigi's Mansion 3: The Italian Ghost-Hunter Returns! is an action-adventure/puzzle game for the Nintendo Switch. It is a prequel to the two Luigi's Mansion games, as its plot resembles the creation of ghosts and Boos.
Its gameplay is more or less both previous games combined: You have to clear numerous missions in numerous locations, just like in Luigi's Mansion 2. However, in some missions there are also Portrait Ghosts, which are basically mini-bosses which are ghosts with insanely high HP, just like in the first Luigi's Mansion game. There are also 10 collectibles in each location, and if you collect them all, a bonus mission will be unlocked. Aside from the returning features, new ones are introduced as well.
