Luigi's Mansion is getting a Japanese arcade cabinet

It's a light-gun shooter based on Dark Moon.  

Nintendo has partnered with Capcom to create a Luigi's Mansion arcade game.

Unfortunately, it's so far only set for a Japanese release next summer.

As reported by Gamestalk (via Arcade Heroes), this arcade adaptation will be a light-gun shooter, though ostensibly players' "guns" will operate as vacuums sucking up the suspicious specters.

The Luigi's Mansion arcade spin-off appears to be based around the second game in the series, Dark Moon, and the cabinet itself is a "theater cabinet" wherein you enter it like a photo booth.
