Luigi's Mansion 3 is an adventure game where you explore the intricate rooms of a haunted hotel to find and capture ghosts. As in the first two games, you move through the rooms, finding secrets and treasures, and vacuuming up ghosts. It has the same attention to detail and rich diorama-style space to investigate but adds more complex puzzles and a new character, Gooigi, who can move through pipes and grates to reach inaccessible areas.

NotesAccessibility Notes

There is an option in controls to change the right stick sensitivity from omnidirectional to horizontal only. This is used to simplify the use of the torch when searching rooms just looking left and right. If you select this, you can then use the motion controls to change the height Luigi looks at. You can adjust the gyroscope sensitivity.

To defeat ghosts, you need to press A repeatedly as you're vacuuming them to deal damage. Some actions also require you to press simultaneous buttons or hold down buttons. You can't manually save the game.

Text is high in contrast, but not over 1/20th screen height. Overall, the game tends to be brighter than the two previous games, with a brightness slider, so contrast tends to be better too. There's an in-game map, but due to the game's puzzle nature sometimes you need to do some exploring to find the way forward. There are occasional screen shake effects, as well as flashes from lightning bolts and other sources. There are jump scares throughout the game, occasionally played for laughs.

There are no time pressures during the main game, but in multiplayer modes, there is a time limit. However, these modes aren't necessary to beat the story.

Tutorials: There are helpful tutorials and instructions on how to play. Information is provided in a timely manner, with appropriate level of detail.

Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions.

ReadingReading

We've documented 5 accessibility features for Reading in Luigi's Mansion 3 which deal with how much reading or listening comprehension is required, how well the game provides visual and audible access to the text and whether subtitles and captions are a good fit for purpose.

Reading Level

How much reading is required to play the game's main path or story and how complex the language is. The presence of voiced characters doesn't reduce this requirement, as it's recorded as a separate datapoint.

Simple Minimal Reading: Minimal reading is required. The quantity and complexity of reading are at a level that a primary/elementary student (9-year-old) could understand.

Text Visibility

High Contrast Text: Text colour contrasts to the background or can be adjusted to be. The text in menus, instructions and other information is presented in high contrast with a solid background.

Subtitles

All Speech Subtitled (Or No Speech In Game): All spoken content has subtitles, or there is no speech in the game. This means there is no requirement to hear spoken dialogue or narrative to play the game.

Captions

Speaker Indicator: Textual captions indicate who is speaking (or there is only ever one person speaking). This can also be indicated visually in the game with character icons or placing text in speech bubbles next to the person speaking.

Voice Acted

Some Dialogue is Voice Acted: Some of the game dialogue and narrative is voice acted. This reduces the pressure on reading all the dialogue text, although not everything is provided audibly.

Head-Up Display
