Orbital Gate Assault

Orbital Gate Assault is a stage that appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It originates from Star Fox: Assault.

The fight begins on the Great Fox. After some time the fighters are dropped onto an Aparoid missile; like the Great Fox the missile's jet boosters can damage fighters. During this time, an Aparoid fighter crashes onto the missile, damaging anybody hit by it and releasing an item, as well as Arwings appearing and flying away before the missile strikes the gate's force field. Touching the barrier surrounding the gate inflicts damage and knockback. Three Arwings destroy the missile and the battle shifts there. The fighters will be dropped off at the second missile as the Arwings barrel roll away. The second missile will hit the gate at the opposite direction but will be destroyed by the Arwings again, the battle once again being set on the Arwings before the fighters are dropped off on the Great Fox and the cycle starts over.

The omega version of the stage is set on a platform designed after the Orbital Gate itself. The platform travels around the Orbital Gate alongside three Arwings, though the battle no longer takes place.

One of two Star Fox conversations can be initiated on this stage by holding the shield button when selecting this stage as any character other than Fox or Falco.

The unlock match for Falco takes place here.
