Luigi\’s misadventures in haunted mansions have finally paid off for the plumber in green! Well, at least, as far as Smash Bros. is concerned. Now that he\’s a certified vacuum wielder, Luigi has brought his trusty Poltergust 3000 to the fray! Activate Luigi\’s Final Smash in time and the competition will be nothing more than dust in the wind! How convenient with a vacuum lying around.
\”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.\”
Say good-bye to the Negative Zone and hello to a new age of home cleaning appliances! When Luigi cracks open a Smash Ball, he\’ll strap on the Poltergust 3000 for what will surely be a devastating attack! Or, possibly the set up for one? Luigi may force his opponents near him, thanks to the pure sucking power only found in Poltergust products, for a heavy helping of damage.
Like many of the returning veterans, Luigi is another familiar face that is having his moveset tweaked from their Brawl incarnations. In Luigi\’s case, his Luigi\’s Mansion titles on Gamecube and 3DS were enough to get the nod with the Poltergust\’s inclusion.
Personally, though, this is a bit disappointing. The Negative Zone was a fun and unique Final Smash that seemed to fit perfectly with Luigi\’s style. It\’s a shame to see it go. Further, the Poltergust 3000 could have easily been worked into Luigi\’s actual moveset, just like Mario\’s FLUDD is his down-b special. As much as it being his Final Smash is certainly cool, it saddens me that you won\’t see it in actual outside of when a Smash Ball comes into play. Why couldn\’t we have seen the vacuum incorporated into his standard or special attacks?
Let us know what you think about today\’s update in the comments below. Should the Poltergust 3000 have been a B move or is it fine as a Final Smash? Will you miss the Negative Zone? Sound off!
