Just when you thought Luigi couldn\’t suck more, Nintendo decided they could suck too. Of course, they want to suck things up with a Poltergust 5000 replica straight from the new 3DS Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon game. Nintendo Insider said that Nintendo of America got together with production company iam8bit to create the replica of the powerful ghost busting and sucking backpack Luigi wields bravely in the game.
The process began with an average Joe vacuum getting gutted out like a Tom turkey. Then, as Jon from iam8bit. explained, \”Everything had to be built around the motor and other internal parts, so the process worked in reverse.\” About twenty epic looking rings were added to the spooky hose making it shiny and worthy of making busting \”feel good\” just like the song from the 1980’s classic \”Ghost Busters\” proclaimed. The straps for the backpack were put on and hidden to what is called the ephermeal storage unit.
Some even more awesome elements that were added were a working light, wheels for scooting along, and as Jon said,
\”…perhaps the most important feature of all –a specifically created mouthpiece, wide enough to accept even the most punchy spirit.\”
