*It is suggested through in-game dialogue that this is only the second time Luigi has directly seen Professor E. Gadd and King Boo. *The game features some references and Easter Eggs, most of which appear in the intro sequence: There is a trophy over the fireplace which has a plunger and a wrench on it, suggesting that Luigi does work as a plumber from time to time. The scene when Luigi inspects his TV is a reference to a scene in the movie Poltergeist. The scene where Luigi looks down the staircase in the Hollow Tree is a reference to the movie Vertigo and the camera effect named after it. The cutscene in Treacherous Mansion where two Strong Greenies bring a suit of armor to life is a reference to Frankenstein. *This is one of the rare Nintendo games that was not released on Friday in Europe. The game was released on Thursday, March 28, 2013, because Friday, March 29, 2013 was Good Friday. In some European countries, the game was released on March 27, 2013. *For a limited time, players in Europe could purchase the retail version of the game with a glow-in-the-dark cover, and a Boo stress ball as a pre-order bonus. *Luigi keeps his flashlight out even in a lit room, unlike in the previous game. A Puzzle Swap panel based on the game can be found in the StreetPass Mii Plaza. *The first letters of each mansion, possessor, and bonus mission, in the order of the story, make out the word "ghost." If ScareScraper is included, it will also spell "ghosts". *The trick is left intact in the German and Dutch translation. The first letters make out the words "geist" in German and "spook" in Dutch. In Dutch it only works with the first letters of the possessors and bonus missions, however. In the French translation, the first letter of each bonus mission in order read "Luigi".
