Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has teased another interesting bit from the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games, this time electing to show off a cameo character known from the classic arcade shooter Galaga.
The character in question is Boss Galaga, who is infamous for trying to pull the player’s ship in with its tractor beam and double its power. Boss Galaga will do the same thing in Super Smash Bros., though this time it will just lift you up off the screen.
Sakurai said the following about Boss Galaga:
“If you get caught in the Boss Galaga item’s tractor beam, it will carry you away to the top of the screen. You can shoot it down, but it won’t join you in battle for double the firepower.”
Super Smash Bros. is set to release for the 3DS on October 3rd and the Wii U by the end of the year.
