Game should have been on Wii U, the tab-troller-let would have been a perfect accent to the game.

I really wanted a sequel to this game for years but not on a handheld. It would be so much more immersive on the wiiU.

Nintendo should have adopted cross buy from Sony and released this game on both systems.

They probably never optimized it for the Wii U. I would only see Nintendo adopting cross-buy if they had a lot of games that were shared across both platforms and so far the only game thus far that has it is a 3rd party Capcom game. I think Smash Bros. may be the only Nintendo developed game with both the 3DS and the Wii U in mind.

This game is fine on 3DS, but it better have circle pad pro support.

I really just think that it was easy to recreate the engine on the 3Ds, because of the very similar power between WII/Gamecube and 3Ds also played a pretty big roll.

It would be nice if the Wii.U had it's own version, but I'm glad it never came to the Wii.U...I could just see a quick port...or a Luigi's that was underwhelming compared to 3Ds.

If the Wii.U got it's own version, it would need the game build fromt ground up with the Wii.U arch playing a vital roll.

If Luigi's came to Wii.U, this would be a Wii.U bought by me:)

I remember hearing that originally Nintendo really wanted to make the original Luigi's Mansion in 3D, but the tech wasn't there for it.

So it doesn't surprise me that they wanted this on 3DS.

The gamecube was actually 3D enabled before release, then it was locked. It would've been the first 3D Stereoscopic console (native too:))

wasnt the original luigis mantion for the gamecube the best looking game for some time??

If anyone knows of a better looking game that released before or after luigis mantion please shoot it at me. . id like to see that .. .

It was the best looking game on the Gamecube using it's art style, but i mean there were plenty of games that looks amazing during that time, including Zone of the enders, MGS 2, Halo Combat Evolved and max payne:)

I don't get it...your simply repeating the sentance, with nothing more said.

No it wasn't, I stated games above that looked better for their time, and paid more attention o detail.

I mean ratchet and clank and Sly cooper came out a couple of months later and sporter better graphics, lighting and visuals....

Also let's not forget that dreamcast was pumping out Shenmue Two which had some of the best graphics then...
