Luigi Gets a New Final Smash

Since its debut in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Final Smash attacks have caused many rifts between friends, families and loved ones. They are the ultimate attack performed by each character and can really turn the tides of battle to your favor. Most Final Smashes are intense, powerful and pretty cool; except for the one Luigi uses.

In Brawl, he would envelop himself and the surrounding area in a crazy, psychedelic sphere. If enemies are inside once it’s used, they become too woozy to even move. It makes them easy pickins’. It comes in handy but not very fitting for him. In what game does he even do this other than Brawl? It’s named after the Negative Zone, a hidden area in the original Super Mario Bros. game but it’s all pretty odd to say the least. At least Mario’s super fire balls make sense as does Princess Zelda’s light arrow.

However, a newly released image from the Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS director, Masahiro Sakurai, reveals Luigi’s new move. Instead of dancing, he will be using his vacuum from Luigi’s Mansion. Why couldn’t they come up with that from the beginning? Many believe using the Poltergust will act similarly to Kirby’s cooking smash, where enemies can’t escape the pull. Only time will tell but this means there’s room for other characters to receive a change.
