The lights are on
In a new screenshot posted on the Smash Bros. Miiverse, director Masahiro Sakurai gives us a look at Luigi’s new, improved final smash. The brother in green has dumped the psychedelic dancing in favor of something with a bit more style.
While we haven’t seen the Poltergust (pictured above) in action yet, we have some thoughts about the effect it might have on opponents. We expect it might be a trap type smash that inhales foes within range and then ejects them at high velocity (not unlike Kirby’s final smash from Brawl). As long as Luigi says "I did it!" at the end, we're happy.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are on track for a 2014 release.

Might actually get a Wii U so as not to miss this.
I wish he could fight with the Poltergust normally. That would make Luigi more interesting to me.
His smash power wasn't so bad in brawl. Get there damage around 30%, use his smash power, put enemies to sleep, then give them the Luigi uppercut and petty much a instant k.o..
Awesome. I just bought a 3DS XL last week without even knowing that this was coming out later this year. My day just got better!
This makes Luigi so much better! I'm happy they're bring in the Poltergust for his Final Smash.
This seems like it could be cool. The prediction of what it will do seems very likely. I don't really remember his smash from brawl, I hardly used him, but I remember it being weird. I like that they are basing it in one of my favorite games. :) (Nice wordplay with the title as well. It tricked me until I realized what it meant.)
YES!! I've been wanting this for so long!
The negative space Smash was really weird...
Just what is DK doing?
As much as I love the creepy, 'Weegee-esque' direction Nintendo took Luigi in for the Super Smash Bros games, this makes much more sense.
I'm not really sure why Luigi was cast as such a weirdo in Melee and Brawl...
