A novel. After mysteriously winning a mansion, Luigi must use his courage and his customized vacuum to fight ghosts and unlock the mansion's secrets in order to look for his brother who has gone missing.
"...And the grand prize is... a big, haunted mansion?"
Luigi isn't used to winning. So when he gets a mysterious letter claiming that he's won an enormous mansion, he naturally gets excited... but there's just one little catch. There's ghosts all over the place, and the house is haunted!
To make matters worse, Luigi's older brother, Mario, was last seen going into the mansion and never coming out. Luigi hates ghosts - he's deathly afraid of them, in fact - but he soon discovers it's more complicated than that. According to a kind old scientist living nearby, the mansion doesn't even exist at all!
It turns out that this inventor, Professor E. Gadd, has been studying the ghosts for some time - and passes on a useful weapon to help Luigi in his quest. The Poltergust 3000 is no ordinary vacuum: it's a wearable tool capable of capturing specters!
Luigi isn't exactly known for his bravery, but he sets out into the dark house to discover the truth. Can he overcome his obstacles - including himself - and find Mario before it's too late?
Based on the original Nintendo title.
