Vaccum cleaners are wonderful. You can use them to frighten pets, bother people watching television, and even to clean the carpet. They’re also an extremely useful means by which to rid large abandoned households of ectoplasmic apparitions, should the need arise.
Luigi’s GameCube foray into ghost-bustery needs no introduction, and 3DS fans have been eager to get their hands on the stereoscopic sequel for some time. Bad news struck Nintendo fans of the Americas today when it was reported that the game was delayed into 2013. Which, by the way, is next year. As in, not this year. As in, we have to wait even longer. Boo!

“No, when he wrote ‘boo’ he meant it as an expression of disdain, not a reference to y-y-you… uhh… c-c-can I get back to you next year on the whole sucking-you-into-my-Hoover thing?”

The question on everyone’s lips (except American lips, which were busy twisting downwards at the corners with sadness at the news), was would the delay hit Europe too?
A glance at the game’s information page on the UK Nintendo website suggests, sadly, that everyone’s suffering the 2013 blues. The game’s listed as a 2013 release, with no precise date beyond that. Not even a specific month.
Presumably Luigi’s schedule is just too packed for him to go creeping through mansions slurping up spectres, especially now he and his brother are busy frolicking with attractive Spaniards.
It’s glum news indeed for many a fan of the lean green ghost-slurping machine, and does detract one particularly anticipated title from Nintendo’s potential end of year lineup. Nonetheless, hopes for the hoover-powered haunt-’em-up remain high, and we can only assume that the longer wait will make for a much better game when it finally arrives.
Until that day, the humble household vacuum cleaner remains nothing more than a dutiful household appliance, humbly waiting for the day it can be strapped to a plumber’s back and used for greater things.
We feel your pity, vacuum cleaner. It really sucks.
