Don’t forget to dodge! - Some ghosts are very strong and move Luigi around, so the player may need to dodge furniture, other ghosts, and hazards by sidestepping to the left or right.

Flashlight vs. Strobulb

Ghosts don’t like lights. In fact, they’ll freeze in place if you shine a light on them, making them a lot easier to catch. Which one of these models will you choose?

Flashlight

The flashlight turns on automatically whenever you’re in a dark place. Press the A or ZR button to turn the flashlight off if you want to sneak up close to a ghost.

Strobulb

The Strobulb will flash when you release the A or ZR button. You can charge it up by holding the button, which will then emit a wider flash when you release.

Elemental Medals

These medals let Luigi use fire, ice, or water with the Poltergust 3000. Blasting out the right elements can damage ghosts and solve puzzles!

Game Boy Horror

Professor E. Gadd’s invention, the Game Boy Horror, is a revolutionary tool that allows Luigi to track his location in the mansion, detect Boos, and view stats—and now it’s available right on your touchscreen! The Game Boy Horror also includes a camera, which can be used to search around rooms, discover Portrait Ghost weaknesses, and hear fun descriptions about objects from Luigi.

Boss Battles

Portrait Ghosts are different from other ghosts and require a bit more convincing or trickery to capture them. Some are more traditional boss battles, where Luigi must launch objects or attack them with an element before they can be damaged. Others require Luigi to solve a puzzle or trick them before he can vacuum them up!
