We may have received a huge influx of information regarding Super Smash Bros. for Wii U just a couple weeks ago with the 50-Fact Extravaganza, but there are still apparently surprises in store on the part of Nintendo and game director, Masahiro Sakurai. In today’s “Pic of the Day” feature on Miiverse, Sakurai provided two images showing off a stage that we knew existed, but about which we knew few details. Most interestingly, however, is that the stage in question in from a game that won’t release until some time after Smash Bros. for Wii U comes out: a first for the series.
Based on Yoshi’s Woolly World, a game scheduled to come out for Wii U some time next year (and conspicuously absent from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct), this stage demonstrates the same aesthetics as the source game, even going so far as to charge the physics of the stage to simulate the wool (and other material) based platforming of the source game. Additionally, this stage will be a dynamic one, changing its layout throughout a battle.
As a fan of the upcoming Yoshi-centric platformer, I’m happy to see this stage make the cut – but I’m even more excited for what it could mean about other stages about which we do not yet know. Heck, maybe we’ll even get some Majora’s Mask 3D love in the Wii U tiltle (I would say Zelda U, but let’s be realistic here). What stages from unreleased games would you like to see in Smash Wii U?
