The lights are on
Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has announced a few new inclusions for Super Smash Bros. The reveals include a new stage from a beloved RPG and an assist trophy from an older title only recently made available outside of Japan.
For the first time, there will be a stage based on Paper Mario. The fan in the background blows things around, and when the paper folds and unfolds, a new scene is revealed. The second area of the stage is based on the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
Sakurai also confirmed a new assist trophy. Takamaru from The Mysterious Murasame Castle will make an appearance (seen above). The title first appeared on the Famicom Disk System and arrived on the 3DS Virtual Console this year.
Sakurai also shared a new picture of the 3DS-exclusive Tomodachi Life stage. The environment was previously confirmed, but this gives us a new look at how we'll wreck our friends' apartments.
