We don’t have a confirmed Luigi’s Mansion 3 release date as of yet. Just an E3 preview and several interviews about the game itself. A listing in Amazon Mexico might have leaked the Luigi’s Mansion 3 release date, however. If we’re to believe this rumor, the game may be releasing on October 4th later this year.
The leak came from a resetera post where a user ordered their copy of Luigi’s Mansion 3 from Amazon Mexico.
Amazon Mexico has correctly leaked a release date in the past. This was the date to the video game South Park: Fractured But Whole. This gives them a bit of credibility in this regard.
However, until there’s an official announcement, I wouldn’t bet on 4th October being official just yet. A lot of things do add up though. Points that I will now bring up as to why the leak may be correct.
The first one is the 4th falling on a Friday. It’s a common strategy in video game marketing to release their title on a Friday. This gives people inclination to immediately buy and play said game over the weekend.
The second reason has to do with the Nintendo Switch Lite. The Nintendo Switch Lite is a new hand-held version of Nintendo Switch that’s releasing on the 29th of September; Suspiciously close to the Luigi’s Mansion 3 release date.
However, one thing about the Lite is that it can’t run every Nintendo Switch game so Luigi’s Mansion 3 might be one of those games.
The final reason I think the leak might be correct is the month. October is the month of Halloween. We all know Luigi’s Mansion has a spooky theme to it. So what better time to release a spooky game than in the spookiest month of all.
These are just my thoughts, however. As I said before, the Luigi’s Mansion 3 release date is just a leak. It confirms nothing until an official announcement.
