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.

  • cant wait for this gaaame!

  • Luigi is just the best.

  • Very cool. This will be the first Smash Bros. Title that I actually own, so I can't wait for this one.

  • I'm still turning Final Smashes off so I don't care.


  • Man...the day this game arrives can't come soon enough. Looking forward to seeing Luigi's new final smash in action later this year.

  • Mod

    Hahaha! I can't wait to get this!

  • Give us a release day.

  • If they do not release a Wii U and 3DS bundle with smash bros someone should be fired in their marketing department.

  • So, suck is to be taken in the literal sense. Good pun... if there ever was one.

  • So they added a new Final Smash for a character that's been cloned to death in previous Smash games? Figures.

    P.S: That thumbnail!!

  • I can't wait to play this game on the 3DS and start smashing and bashing some opponents

  • YES!! Something that has to do with Luigi! I mean I love Luigi but just felt like the smash in brawl was a total joke. I feel like all Nintendo has done with Luigi is make him Mario's awkward, weird, weeny brother of the past few years.

  • But...but I liked his final smash from Brawl! But hey, this seems interesting too. I mean, the poltergust? Madness! I bet it'll be fun to use!
