Luigi’s Mansion: Old games tend to hide some elements that, at least normally, wouldn’t be noticed by many players. However, digging through extra menus can reveal some pretty curious things about certain items, and this is the case with Poltergust 3000 in Luigi’s Mansion.
This Monday (3), Supper Mario Broth’s Twitter profile revealed that Luigi’s equipment is able to count how much dust was vacuumed when accessing the game’s debug menu. Another detail is that there is also the possibility of seeing changes in this amount when expelling or vacuuming more. Check the images below:
In Luigi's Mansion, the Poltergust 3000 actually counts the number of dust particles it vacuums up just so it can eject the correct amount of dust when it expels air. This has no apparent purpose other than maximum realism. Details in image. pic.twitter.com/xgNn08HIm2

Although there’s no apparent explanation, there’s a chance that this system could be used to unlock new areas or even aid in some ghost encounters, but it ended up staying in the game just as an extra for realism, apparently.
Finally, the debug menu has some other features (like some objects that could be scanned with the Game Boy Horror inside the game), and you can check some of that in the video below:
