If you want something spooky from your Nintendo games this Halloween but aren’t looking for a full horror game, here are a few spooky levels in non-horror games to check out.
Big Boo’s Haunt – Super Mario 64
It might be an older game, but there’s nothing quite like exploring the creepy haunted mansion in Super Mario 64. For a spooky atmosphere and plenty of ghosts, fire up Super Mario 64 (or Super Mario 64 DS) and revisit Big Boo’s Haunt. Afterwards, join us in hoping Super Mario Odyssey features a new haunted level for us to enjoy.
Mad Monster Mansion – Banjo-Kazooie
Super Mario 64 isn’t the only Nintendo 64 game with a memorable spooky level. Mad Monster Mansion in Banjo-Kazooie is filled with monsters, ghosts, and more.

Twisted Mansion – Mario Kart 8
The Twisted Mansion course in Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch is a delightful track set in a haunted mansion. Lots of Boos and other creepy features make this a perfect course to check out if you enjoyed the Luigi’s Mansion course from previous Mario Kart games.
Mystery Carnival – Pokken Tournament
