The Home-run Bat returns in Super Smash Bros.

Posted on February 12, 2014 AT 05:01am

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that the Home-run Bat will be making a return in the upcoming 3DS and Wii U game.

“The Home-run Bat in this game is black,” Sakurai said in his latest Miiverse post, ”and it’s so powerful that your eyes might bug out!” The Home-run Bat is considered one of the most powerful and dangerous weapons in the franchise as unlike most other items it can be used with a forward smash attack. If this attack connects it causes a massive knock-back that can sometimes be enough to K.O. an opponent.

Super Smash Bros. is set to release later this year for 3DS and Wii U.
