Luigi mansion was a mario/ghostbuster game that suprised everyone. The over shadowed brother of Mario himself fits the role as #1 in a game. This game as a GCN launch sold 3.6mil which is impressive, and now the long awaited sequel comes up in a couple months next year!
I want to kno will LM DM live up to its prequel, It was on the Gamecube which sold a measly 21mil consoles! With the 3DS it can shoot up very high in terms of sales and boost hardware!
This game IMO can sell alot,Look at the comparison between Animal Crossing
3.15mil>>>> AC (original) Vs. 3.60mil>>>Luigi Mansion
11.83mil>>> AC (DS) Vs. ?????>>Luigi Mansion Dark Moon (3DS)
AC 3DS version is currently around 1.5mil but only japan release and contiuing to be #1 in japan soon!
So whats your take on all this? Will LM2 be alright or will it be massive?
As soon as I saw "multiple mansions" I was convinced this would sell much less than the first. I think ~1.2m.
Had it come out for the Wii...

The original did 3.60m according to VGC, I think 3DS's version will do 5m.
The first Luigi's Mansion is the kind of game that got a lot of hate when it launch (I guess this was because it wasn't a Mario game), but over the years the game have gotten a lot more popular (at least for what I've seen) so I think this will do a little bit better than the first one, my guess is that between 4-5 million.
