“More Than A Few” Zelda Items In New Super Smash Bros. Says Sakurai

By Ishaan . April 7, 2014 . 9:01am

Last week’s batch of Super Smash Bros. screenshots revealed two new items in the game—the Gust Bellows from Zelda and the Poltergust from Luigi’s Mansion.


Sakurai: “The Gust Bellows can blow opponents away with its powerful wind blasts. When someone drops it, though, the gusts run wild! Out of the new items, more than a few will be from The Legend of Zelda series. We’ll take the most interesting and straightforward ones and reformulate them to match the Smash Bros. world.”


Sakurai: “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.”


Sakurai also showed off a new stage from the Wii U version of the game, pictured above. “This may look like a side-scrolling action game, but it’s actually one of the stages,” he noted on Miiverse.

    That Luigi screenshot makes me think that his final smash is no longer his super drug field from brawl. Always thought he should have had the poltergust anyway.

  • KingGunblader

    Item? I thought the Poltergust was Luigi’s new Final Smash? Either way, I’m happy, because Luigi’s Mansion on 3DS was awesome.

  • PreyMantis

    What game is that new stage from, though…?

  • Nanaki

    I fairly certain that Poltergust is Luigi’s new Final Smash rather than an item to use. “Showing it off” and Luigi giving out the FS lighting effect causes me to assume that.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    the new stage looks like a better Stage builder

    • LastManStanding

      That springboard looks exactly like Stage Builder’s. But Sakurai said, “it’s one of the stages”, so maybe that there is not a custom stage?

        He forgot to add:

        “…built in Stage Builder.”

  • Learii

    where FLUDD from Mario Sunshine

    • Isn’t that Mario’s down+B?

      • Learii

        no I mean as an item

  • Krisi92

    The Poltergust is clearly his Final Smash. Can’t you see the yellow glow?
