Dragoon from Kirby Air Ride has been shown in the upcoming Super Smash Bros 4 game, which is slated for a summer release date for the Nintendo 3DS version and a winter release date for the Wii U version.

Dragoon is an Assist Trophy that gives players the ability, if they combine all three pieces, to knockout one another. 

“Uniting three parts will complete the legendary Air Ride machine…the Dragoon! It’s back! But we didn’t just leave it the way it was, and added some nice touches to the design of the targeting screen,” said game director Masashiro Sakurai.

“It is, of course, in stereoscopic 3D on the 3DS.”

Sakurai also recently shared with fans the Bullet Bill item.

Using the item will let the user become a Bullet Bill and take off in whichever direction they wish.

Sakurai didn’t say whether the player will be able to control it after launching.
