Luigi’s Mansion 3 offers a few possible outcomes for the poor plumber. Things can be over real quick if you’re unable to outrun King Boo — or if you’re just really curious to see what Luigi would look like behind a fancy frame.
Early on, before he is even equipped with his new Poltergust G-00 ghost-catching device, Luigi has a run-in with King Boo. A chase begins in a narrow, cluttered hallway, and if the sinister ghost king catches up with you, you’re forever trapped in one of his paintings. If you want to have your shortest experience with a Luigi’s Mansion game, this is how you do it.
Of course, you can also make it to the final showdown against King Boo and either beat him or lose Luigi in the process. If you run out of health or fail to stop him in time, King Boo will again have a new painting to add to his collection. If you do beat him, you get your true ending.
These alternate endings aren’t outrageously fancy, since there isn’t much decision-making involved. However, it’s better than a simple game-over screen. At least this way you know Luigi’s fate if King Boo were to succeed with his master plan.
