One of the most celebrated franchises in Nintendo's long history, Luigi's Mansion, is making a comeback this year with the officially confirmed Luigi's Mansion 3. Although the title won't be available until October 31st, 2019 (just in time for Halloween), developer Nintendo has recently announced that the game will be getting post-launch content releases and expanded multiplayer content in the form of paid DLCs.

Specifically, these paid DLCs will expand the game's two current multiplayer modes, ScareScraper and ScreamPark. This is according to the game's official webpage, which reads:

"Paid DLC will come to Luigi's Mansion 3 in the future, adding new content to the ScareScraper and ScreamPark multiplayer modes."

In ScareScraper, up to four players can experience seamless co-op multiplayer either locally or online, and in ScreamPark, up to eight players can compete across several mini-games. With Luigi's Mansion 3's multiplayer set up the way it is, post-launch plans to expand multiplayer content with paid DLCs will probably include new levels, minigames, and more, for both the co-op ScareScraper and competitive ScreamPark game modes.

Luigi's Mansion 3 is the upcoming third installment to the Luigi's Mansion franchise. Succeeding Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (2013) and the original Luigi's Mansion (2001), Luigi's Mansion 3 will be the first title in the franchise to make it to the Nintendo's latest-generation console, the Nintendo Switch. Alongside the improved connectivity and superior technology made available through the Switch, Luigi's Mansion 3 is expected to provide all-new gameplay experiences for both fans and newcomers to the franchise.

Luigi's Mansion 3 was announced earlier this year, and was recently featured at Gamescom 2019, where Nintendo revealed a few minutes of gameplay. Officially, the game is set to launch right on Halloween on October 31.
