Star Fox Assault is the latest inspiration in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with creator Masahiro Sakurai revealing the inclusion of a new Orbital Gate stage.

This explosive addition is described as being “pretty hectic” with players witnessing team Star Fox saving the large satellite, which orbits Corneria, from an Aparoid invasion force.

“This is the Orbital Gate stage. This is a Wii U version-exclusive stage reenacting Team Star Fox’s defense of the Orbital Gate from an Aparoid missile attack,” Sakurai wrote on Miiverse.

“Missiles are launched towards the Orbital Gate! The force field shields the machinery for a while, and the missiles eventually get shot down by team Star Fox. Overall, this stage feels like a ride. It’s pretty hectic, so hold on tight!”

“The Arwings are passing through the gate! And the fighters hop on for a free ride!!”

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will release in Europe, North America and Japan this winter.
