Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

This is a game that my son has spent quite a bit of time playing and he has really enjoyed it. He would occasionally get scared at certain parts of the game but never actually frightened or to the point of really being afraid; I think just mode anticipation of going into certain areas, etc. This is a cute game with known Mario characters and I would recommend it overall.

A Christian Review

I am Christian, and I let my son play this game. He is ten. I bought it with lots of worries, but I watched him play, and found nothing wrong with it. The ghosts aren't Demons from hell. They're just little spooks. They're like creatures, that just so happen to be called Ghosts. It's far different from something like Ghostbusters. In the long run, it's similar to Pokemon. And Luigi doesn't have to go into a Haunted Mansion, but he does for the sake of his brother. You help him do it. I highly recommend it.

Great role models
