Can the Mushroom Kingdom handle more then one Luigi? Time will tell.

Local, Download Play, and online multiplayer modes are in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

All multiplayer takes place inside the ScareScraper, where players can experience Hunter Mode, the only mode unveiled at this time. 

In Hunter Mode players take control of multiple Luigi's, each a different color, and choose from one of three difficulties. Players have to work together in order to clear floors of ghosts, and bosses located on some floors. Different bonuses are earned based on how players perform in the limited time given.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon releases on March 24. You can read Aaron's Impressions of the multiplayer here.

Multiplayer Mode Makes A Ghostly Appearance In Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon 

Nintendo has revealed new information about Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon launching exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on March 24. Luigi stumbles through multiple mansions to capture ghosts and solve puzzles armed with his trusty ghost-catching vacuum cleaner, the Poltergust 5000, and in a series first, the game will feature local and online multiplayer modes, as well as Download Play capabilities.

Join up with up to four players and journey into the ScareScraper, which is jam-packed with paranormal creatures. Additional systems and games may be required for multiplayer modes and are sold separately. In Hunter Mode, each player controls a different color Luigi and is challenged to hunt down ghosts and use effective teamwork to clear each floor of the tower before the clock strikes zero. Bonuses and upgrades can be earned depending on how well the team performs. There are also boss battles at the top of each tower. Players can choose the number of floors in this mode ranging from five, 10 or 25. They can adjust the difficulty to cater to both new and veteran gamers. Fallen players can even be revived by their teammates to keep the adventure going. 

When Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon launches on March 24, shoppers can purchase the packaged game as usual at retail locations nationwide. Or they can simply purchase and download the game on their own from the Nintendo eShop using a wireless broadband connection. Regardless of their purchasing method, the game sells for a suggested retail price of $39.99. For more information about Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, visit http://luigismansion.nintendo.com.
