Sakurai has taken to Miiverse to deliver the picture of the day and the following message:
Pic of the day. Luigi might be thinking, “Who would’ve thought I’d get to show off the Poltergust in Super Smash Bros.?!” Wondering if it’s going to suck something in? Yeah, it probably will.
Luigi may have left the mansion and stopped his ghost busting escapades, but that doesn’t mean we had to see the last of Luigi’s iconic Vacuum weapon the Poltergust 3000. Surely he will not be using it to suck up any ghosts. Well it is highly unlikely but what is likely is seeing many of his foes wind up getting put in awkward positions as Luigi embraces the power of his vacuum to perform what is likely to be his most powerful finishing move to date. From the look of things this is set to be Luigi’s new Final Smash technique, and it looks like a major step up from his technique in Brawl which covered the area surrounding Luigi in a green ball while he danced his enemies to sleep. The year of Luigi may be over, but Luigi still just keeps getting cooler and cooler.
