Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD developer revealed as Skyward Sword HD studio

The identity of the studio responsible for Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD has been revealed.

The remaster of the critically acclaimed 3DS game is set to release on the Switch on June 27, but Nintendo has previously kept its developer secret.

Whereas Next Level Games developed the original 3DS version, the game’s credits reveal that the HD remaster was handled by Tantalus Media, VGC can confirm.

The Australian studio is no stranger to Nintendo remasters, having previously been responsible for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on Wii U and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on Switch.

It also previously worked on the Definitive Editions of Age of Empires I, II and III, as well as the Switch version of Sonic Mania.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 (known in North America as Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon) was originally released on the 3DS in 2013, as part of Nintendo’s Year of Luigi celebrations.

It was followed by Luigi’s Mansion 3, which was released exclusively on the Switch in 2019.

VGC’s Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD calls the game “an accomplished journey back to the Year of Luigi”.

“Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD is another strong Nintendo remaster which doesn’t mess around with the original too much, but delivers enough improvements (particularly in terms of visual detail) to make it a worthwhile release,” we wrote. “The controls still aren’t perfect and Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the better game but the sheer charm crammed into every crevice means it’s still absolutely worth a look.”
