Super Smash Bros. will include Legend of Zelda's beetle item

In news of extreme interest to a very small contingent of our demographic, Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U will include a new item.

According to a new screenshot posted on MiiVerse by game director Masahiro Sakurai, the beetle is coming to the latest version of Super Smash Bros.

The version seen in the multiplayer brawler is that found in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

As such, it can be used to grab characters and carry them into the air. Sakurai apparently finds this very amusing.

Super Smash Bros., ladies, gentlemen and everyone else! It's coming to 3DS and Wii U in 2014 and Nintendo is drip-feeding us information. The latest rumour is that Kid Icarus's Paultena will make a playable appearance.

Thanks, Cubed3.
