One of Luigi's moves for the upcoming Wii U and 3DS Super Smash Bros. game will have the younger brother using his "Poltergust" vacuum to trap enemies. That's according to a new image from the game shared by game director Masahiro Sakurai as today's "Pic of the Day."

Sakurai writes, "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."

As you can see in the image, Luigi is outlined by a gold glow that suggests he'll use the Poltergust as his Final Smash move. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii, Luigi's Final Smash was the trippy "Negative Zone" that inflicted damage upon enemies caught in its damage zone.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS is expected to launch sometime in 2014, though Nintendo has not provided a firm release date yet. Luigi's Poltergust vacuum most recently appeared in 2013 3DS game Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
