In honor of "Luigi's Mansion" turning a decade old very recently and it's sequel underway, this month, it's all "Luigi's Mansion" Trivia!
Did you know...
...The now discontinued Nintendo Power Line for years spread the misinformation that in order for the player to earn the Tent, he had to beat the game without collecting even a single coin? This is not correct. While the player must collect very little money, a tiny bit will not inhibit him from earning Rank H, which is anywhere from 5,000 to 5,000,000G.
...That Nintendo originally planned for one of the ghosts to be a headhunter, who wanted to add Luigi's head to his collection, but Nintendo omitted the character before the game's release because the Japanese company feared it would be too terrifying for kids?
...One of the reviewers in the October 2001 issue of "Electronic Gaming Monthly" notoriously panned "Luigi's Mansion" with a score 5.5/10?
...In the Telephone Room, when lighting strikes, a glitch appears that makes it appear as if Luigi's shadow is being hung from the ceiling?
...That "Luigi's Mansion" seems to take a cue from the "Wario Land" series, by awarding Luigi a greater Rank/Mansion based on how much cash/treasure he collects? Wario's only starring 3D adventure, also for the GameCube, "Wario World", would soon after continue the trend.
