Pilotwings Map Confirmed For Super Smash Bros.

Today's daily Super Smash Bros. image features the lesson 3 map from Pilotwings on the Super Nintendo.

Presumably, this will be a playable stage in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, but the image from the official Super Smash Bros. website (which adds new images every day) doesn't make that immediately apparent. It could be a trophy, or maybe even a playable fighter!

Whatever it is, it hasn't been updated to the high-definition era, retaining all of its nostalgic pixelated glory. Looking at it recalls memories of crashing in a fiery jet pack explosion on the bullseye landing zone in the bottom left corner.

  • It looks a little...horizontal...

  • This game is shaping up to be awsome

  • So, does this mean a Pilotwings parachutist is going to be a playable fighter?

    Or a biplane?

    Yeah, those are totally good ideas.

  • That angle definitely makes it a trophy.
  • That angle definitely makes it a trophy.
  • I WANT THIS GAME SOO MUCH!!! I want Pokemon X a tad bit more though.... ;D

  • I'm calling it!! It's gonna be a playable character!! You'll be able to beat up Jigglypuff as an island!!
  • that is excellent.

  • I wish they could just release an avalanche of info. I wonder how it'll be if it is a map.

  • Wow, and I thought Pilotwings started with N64. I do love these retro style maps, and this one only makes me thing of NES Open Tournament Golf. If this is a stage, it looks like it's another one of those changing terrain types. I like those, especially Delfino Plaza, but it seems like overkill now.

  • I would like to see this as a playable arena. Although the way the picture is angled makes it look more like a trophy.

  • It looks so... flat... Fighting in a match with planes everywhere sounds awesome though.. Or on planes!!

  • The picture itself doesn't really lend itself to anything. People say trophy, but I don't know... Are islands common trophy items? It's possible they're just using this image as a teaser for the actual stage, or something.
  • Doesn't look too much like a stage to me... though it doesn't look like much else either.

  • SMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH BROOOOOOOS. I am hyped for this game! The new maps and characters have all really impressed me so far.

  • this level even has the Smash Bros. Logo if you look at the runways and rotate the image

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the characters in Pilotwings just your Mii avatars?

    If that's the case, then I predict that 'Your Mii' will be announced as a playable character at some point. I'd be just fine with that. That would be an awesome move set to work with ( considering they could pull from Wii Sports/Resort, Nintendo Land, Pilotwings, etc).
  • I can't wait for this game to come out.

  • The most useless news item ever?
