Capcom’s Luigi Mansion Arcade Lands In The USA for Testing

arcadehero October 7, 2015 3

For all of the arcade games that have received some location tests in the US this year, I had expected Capcom’s Luigi Mansion Arcade to be among the first. In a case of better late than never, Dave & Busters has once again nabbed the opportunity to give the game its day in the sun here. Here is the tweet:

How long the test will last is not mentioned but these typically only run for a few weeks. The question still remains as to what the test might lead to – if successful, who will be manufacturing and distributing the game in the US and for what price? As mentioned on the blog previously, Sega did team up with Capcom to show the game off in Japan so that would be the best educated guess in this case. I suppose we will know for certain next month at IAAPA.

    Oh yeah, I some how knew this was going to be tested although I didn’t think it would take them this long to announce it. I think sega will pick this up to be honest as they don’t have that many games to show off in the arcad these days. There’s mario and sonic at the olympics and the sonic dash games which I don’t consider the same and also that’s if the first game mentioned was successful. I’d say sega and if not then it would have to be namco.

    I tried this game in Japan with my wife and… we didn’t understand anything. It’s a sort of House of Dead with Luigi. There’s 2 buttons on the vacuum cleaner but it is quite complicated to know how exactly kill the mobs. I didn’t play Luigi Mansion on GC. Maybe it could help to figure what you need to do. And the game was quite expensive : 200 yens per play.

      Guessing the other button is to use flashlight to stun the ghost and then the lever to such up ghost hen you see their heart. It helps more if you’ve played the game however.
