Galaga is in Super Smash Bros.

The Galaga boss ship has a role in Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U. As an aficionado of all things Galaga, this recent screenshot of the Galaga boss ship capturing Fox McCloud makes me more interested in the new Super Smash Bros.

Does Fox need to do a barrel roll to escape the Galaga capture beam?

While I was already interested in the game, I haven't actively been following it like the hardcore Smash fans, but seeing the Galaga boss is enough to make me want to play this. Bandai Namco is developing the game, so it makes sense that some of the old classic Namco pixels will be in it. It looks like the Galaga boss is some kind of weapon or item. What happens to Fox after getting captured?

The Special Flag from various Namco games like Rally X, Xevious, and Galaga 3, among others, is also in Super Smash Bros. Now I'm wondering what other old Namco things will show up. The pixel art aside, there is a lot of good stuff to look at in these Super Smash Bros. screenshots.

Charizard with an Special Flag is a fantastic thing.
