Luigi’s New Final Smash Sucks

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.

  • This smash sounds so much better.
  • Hhahah nice. Luigi's Dark Moon was a great game, by the way.
  • Mod
    Ugh, this Final Smash totally blows.
  • Might actually get a Wii U so as not to miss this.

  • That title was misleading in all the best ways possible.
  • 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..

  • Best headline of the year. Looks better than his smash on brawl. I hated his smash.
  • 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...

  • Link has his Master Sword at the ready, Samus is packing heat, and Luigi... has a vacuum. That sucks.
  • Just what is DK doing?

  • Nice pun! A lesson from Marchiafava, perhaps? xD
  • 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...

  • But I kinda liked his old smash.:(
  • This sucks.
