Luigi's Mansion, known as Luigi Mansion (ルイージマンション Ruīji Manshon?) in Japan, is an action-adventure game published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. It was the first Mario game to be released for Nintendo GameCube. It was released in Japan on September 14, 2001, in North America on November 18, 2001, and in Europe on May 3, 2002. The game was a launch title for the GameCube, the only title in the Mario series other than the infamous Mario is Missing in which Luigi is the main protagonist, instead of Mario.

The game takes place in a haunted mansion when Luigi wins a contest that he never entered. He told his brother to meet him there to celebrate his victory. Luigi is searching for his brother Mario, who came to the mansion earlier, but went missing. To help Luigi on his quest, an old professor named Elvin Gadd has equipped him with the "Poltergust 3000", a vacuum cleaner used for capturing ghosts, and a "Game Boy Horror", a device used for communicating with Gadd. He also uses it as a map and to examine ghosts.

Luigi's Mansion was relatively well received by reviewers, despite being criticized for its short length. The game has sold over 2.5 million copies, and is the fifth best-selling Nintendo GameCube game in the United States. It was one of the first games to be re-released as a Player's Choice title on the system. A sequel, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, was announced for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system on June 7, 2011 at E3. Additionally, a mini-game based on the series was revealed to be in the Wii U launch title, Nintendo Land, as Luigi's Ghost Mansion.
