After so many years of waiting for another Luigi’s Mansion, enthusiasts of this upcoming 3DS title may not be pleased to find out that the game’s release has been delayed. The only comment from Nintendo stated that “Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon will now be available in the first half of 2013”, without any further explanation or reasoning.

The game was first announced during E3 2011, and it was showcased at E3 2012. During the 2012 reveal, it was said that the game would launch on holiday season in 2012. It looks like this game won’t be making for a nice holiday gift after all.
