The weapon is actually based on a submarine from “Steel Diver,” a first-party Nintendo 3DS launch title that came out on March 27, 2011. It launches torpedoes that will start out slowly in the beginning before accelerating. A new screen shows Samus looking to pick up the item while Marth watches from a short distance. You can take a look at the cameo weapon, as well as a few other screenshots from “Super Smash Bros. 4,” in the slideshow to the left of this article and the description from Masahiro Sakurai below:

Q: ‘Is this a Steel Diver?’ A: ‘Yes, indeed, that is a Steel Diver.’ The sub from Steel Diver is now a cute projectile weapon--it launches torpedoes that fly slowly at first.

The development team previously noted that they are trying to make certain projectile weapons look less like a real gun. As a result, a lot of the firearm items often look like toys in the “Super Smash Bros.” series. The aforesaid Marth and Samus are two returning fighters for the latest mainline installment of the franchise.

Nintendo is preparing to release “Super Smash Bros. 4” for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U platforms sometime within the next year in the North American region.
