Developed by Capcom, this thrilling addition to the arcade scene quickly gained notoriety for its humour and ghost-busting mayhem.

To bring Luigi's Mansion to the arcade, Capcom had to channel their inner mad scientists and create a truly immersive experience. They paired a massive vacuum controller with a high-definition screen, ensuring players would feel like real paranormal investigators. The "Poltergust" vacuum sucked up not only ghosts but also players' hearts and imaginations.

As players stepped into Luigi's ghost-infested mansion, they were immediately greeted by a spooky, yet comical atmosphere.

A man with his own motives, hopes and  dare we say it, dreams.
