The lights are on
Today, Nintendo confirmed in a press release that Dark Moon features both local and online multiplayer modes along with download play capabilities. Last week, a description on Nintendo’s website discussed a local multiplayer mode, but it was the first anybody had heard about it, so the official confirmation couldn't come at a better time.
You can explore the ScareScraper with up to four other players testing your abilities against a slew of creepies. In hunter mode, you work with others to effectively clear out monster-filled floors in a tower before the clock runs out. A bonus? Bosses are at the top of each tower to really test your skills.
Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is set for March 24 release. For more information check out its website.

This could be really cool. It would be cooler if it had cross-play functionality with the Wii U. That is if it would come to the Wii U.
Luigi's Mansion was a blast on GC, can't wait for this!
I definitely need to buy it.
Different characters would have been better then four separate Luigi's but oh well. The game still looks nice, might have to get it.
It was bound to happen. You could have clearly seen the online logo on the box art.
Cool, so it is a little like Ghostbusters.
This goes out to everybody saying it would only be LOCAL multiplayer because it was a Nintendo game. I'm more into this for the single-player but multiplayer definitely adds to the length of the game, and I hope they do some cool stuff with it. Luigi's Mansion is one of my favorites.
Awesome, I'm so excited for this game!
Hey, it's online, too! Now people can stop b*tching.
