It may not be a new character, but Masahiro Sakurai, director of the Super Smash Bros. series, has revealed a new item for Super Smash Bros. 4. According to a post by Official Nintendo Magazine from Jan. 28, Sakurai disclosed that the beetle from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will make an appearance as an item in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

In a Miiverse post Sakurai reveals that the beetle is a comical item that has the ability to grab opposing characters and carry them off into the air. Whether the item can gab and carry other items hasn’t been disclosed at this time. Find Sakurai’s full explanation of the Skyward Sword beetle item below:

The Beetle item from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a comical item that grabs characters and carries them into the air.

Skilled players will be able to use this item as a unique advantage to get opponents into the sky and to perform air juggles and other airborne attacks. Of course, there is also the chance the beetle carries an opponent off the stage entirely and drops them to their doom.

Super Smash Bros. 4 has been confirmed to release for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in 2014. Expect to hear more on the title’s launch date at E3 2014.
