The lights are on
Today's Super Smash Bros. reveals showcases a new scrolling stage based on Super Mario 3D Land.
Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai wrote on the accompanying Miiverse post, "Here's some info on the Nintendo 3DS stage called Super Mario 3D Land! First, it advances by side-scrolling…"
Sakurai added some additional shots of the stage on the Miiverse along with the one featured on the main Smash Bros. page. It sounds like the stage scrolls, pauses for a moment for some battle, and then moves on to the next venue. Sakurai says that a full rotation of the stage takes about two minutes
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are on track for a 2014 release. For more, check out the reveals of a new Animal Crossing stage, a new Pokémon Lumiose City stage, a stage based on the Japan-only Tomodachi Collection, Diddy Kong, the Mother Brain assist trophy, the Waluigi assist trophy, Lucario, Zelda, the Skull Kid, Marth, Sonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.

At least it's not a simple boring Mario level copy pasted. This will add some needed tension and keep people on their toes. However, no one is surprised that a Mario level is included. I'm guessing a total of 3-5 Mario themed stages total in SSB.
i cant wait
I hate the side scrolling arenas in Smash, I get so many cheap KO's, but still I like that the 3DS and Wii U are getting different stages. I'm going to be buying both versions for sure.
game will be amazing (despite the nonsense in the comments)
I really like how the 3ds version looks. Hopefully it plays just as well.
Awesome! I can't wait to try it out!
Just bought my 2DS last weekend...I hope this game lives up to the hype!
After the Little Mac reveal, I can't really imagine being excited about a stage reveal.
really not too interested in the 3ds/2ds version.. I don't plan on picking it up. Id rather the wiiu. with nintendo, graphics aren't always the most important to anyone, but this version just looks muddy, and loses so much detail when zoomed out.. something kind of important for a smash game since your friends/enemies never occupy the same space as you for more than a few seconds
This is nothing new, it was shown off during the E3 trailer for the game and their have been pics of this stage every so often on the official site.
Nice. Another fun looking stage.
good thing it's coming for 3DS i don't have a wii U
