From the article, "The contest is over, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon‘s Polterpup takes it all. I bet you didn’t even know there was a competition. Well, there is, probably. The Polterpup is an absolutely charming character and I have to say that it is easily the best, new mascot character of 2013. At first I was going to just try and argue that it’s the best dog character we’ll see this year, but it’s more than that. It’s too integral to the overall experience and needs a higher honor."
