Luigi's Mansion is an action-adventure game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. It was released in Japan on September 14, 2001, in North America on November 17, 2001, and in Europe on May 3, 2002. The game was a launch title for the GameCube. This was one of the very few games where Luigi was the main character, not Mario.
The game takes place in a haunted mansion, which Luigi won in a contest he did not enter. He told his brother to meet him there to celebrate his victory. Luigi is searching for his brother Mario, who came to the mansion earlier, but went missing. To help Luigi on his quest, an old professor named Elvin Gadd has equipped him with the "Poltergust 3000", a vacuum cleaner used for capturing ghosts, and a "Game Boy Horror", a device used for communicating with Gadd.
Luigi's Mansion was relatively well-received by reviewers, despite being criticized for its short length. The game has sold over 2.5 million copies, and is the fifth best-selling Nintendo GameCube game in the United States. It was one of the first games to be re-released as a Player's Choice title on the system. A sequel, Luigi's Mansion 2, was announced at E3 2011 for the Nintendo 3DS.
Use of the OpenGL plug-in onresults in a crash post the initial menu screen.
At the beginning of the game, when going upstairs in the dark and going through the next room, the screen might go black and also show silhouette of characters on some hardware. It seems to be fixed in . (Please also update DirectX.). See also
Constant slight crackling may occur in the background and when enemies and friends make noises. Use DSP LLE to fix them.
M4A Video Codec
Support of the M4A codec required to play the Pikmin movie trailer under options is currently working, but it requires DX9 and DSP-LLE.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
