The Intro to Luigi’s Mansion 3 Showcases the Super Mario Universe in a New Light

[NOTE: I try my best to avoid spoilers]

Confession: I’m not very far in Luigi’s Mansion 3. Was hoping to be done before the launch, but life has a funny way of stifling one’s gaming time. For now, it takes a seat at the top of my backlog as Pokemon Sword and Shield take precedence. From the bit I’ve played, I can definitively tell you this one thing: its opening sequence is really special.
