The lights are on
The Ray Gun has appeared in all three of the prior Smash Bros. game, but for the upcoming Wii U and 3DS iteration, the gun has received its most drastic redesign.
Super Smash Bros. director, Masahiro Sakurai, said of the new ray gun in a post on the Miiverse, "The Smash Bros. mark appears backward because it acts like a stamp. We design the Ray Gun carefully each time to ensure it doesn't look like a real gun."
Every day new images appear on the Super Smash Bros. website, and we share the images that add new details. Head here to learn about Marth's return, Sonic, and the other Wii Fit Trainer.

I have been waiting for this game for almost a year since I got my wii u. Come on nintendo and give me what I need!!!
Nice. Pretty cool!
That's funny how they make sure to design it to make it not seem like a real gun, despite the fact that "gun" is in the name of the item.
My heart dropped for a second when I saw Mario with a gun before I realized that it was a screen shot from Smash Bros, lol :P
I like the new design of the ray gun.
Looks good, but this is a pointless reveal. Items are cheap to use so they will be turned off the second I get the game, save for maybe the smash ball to see the new final smashes, and then be done with that too. Characters are the only thing of interest in what is going to be coming for this game.
The ray gun from the original smash bros was the best. It looked cool, and sounded deadly.
I liked the old design better
