In Masahiro Sakurai’s latest Miiverse update, he revealed that Bullet Bill from the Super Mario Bros. series is now an item in the Smash Bros. franchise! Sakurai says”Bullet Bill here is an item. Can you guess what happens when you use it?”

“Bullet Bill here is an item.”

Would he give us a brand new item but not tell us how it works?

Thankfully that is not the case this time!

“Answer: You turn into Bullet Bill and go full speed ahead!”

Sakurai confirmed that with the Bullet Bill item, you actually turn into Bullet Bill himself and “go full speed ahead”. This will definitely be fun, and potentially frustrating for your opponents!

Are there any other new items you would like to see introduced into the Smash Bros. series?
