A New Look At Dr. Wily’s Castle As Smash Bros. Stage

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai knows how to deliver fan service. In his latest Miiverse post and reveal, the man behind Nintendo’s mascot brawler takes us back to our 8-bit childhood.

Dr. Wily’s Castle will be a stage in the upcoming Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. (no images were shown from the 3DS installment yet, but we’re hopeful). Not only will players duke it out in front of the skull-adorned edifice, but an old foe will make things even more challenging.

Those who played the original Mega Man will recognize the “yellow devil.” He appeared at the end of the Mega Man reveal trailer, but now we know he appears during the stage. Unless Mega Man is packing Elecman’s weapon in his buster (and can take advantage of rapidly toggling the pause), he might just have his hands full.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS will be out some time in 2014. For the latest reveals, check out the Skull Kid, Marth, Sonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.

  • That's so cool!

  • Nice. Get this out and start turning the Wii U around.
  • Mega Man looks great, but I can't wait to see what other newcomers are joining the fray, because so far he is the only noteworthy one, in my opinion.
  • Oh Yeah, I remember that big yellow dude. Wow that just sparked a dim corner of my mind… … daddy noo!!! lol jk.

  • The yellow ***!

  • Aww man these guys were a pain in Megaman and Megaman X. I think one of them stopped me from beating Megaman X 5 or 6 or something. So frustrating.
  • Loving the stages so far, looking forward to the release date so I know when to kick everyone's butt as Marth.

  • Wonder if the pause trick will work?...

  • That would be awesome if Yellow Devil could be destroyed by one of Mega Man's weapons as an Easter egg. Also, doesn't he reappear in either Mega Man 3 or 4? I fought him recently, but I didn't play the first game.

  • Sakurai stated the stages will be different between Wii U and 3DS versions, so I doubt this stage is on the 3DS version. I've only played Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 10, what makes the Yellow Devil so evil? I get that he's really hard, but what about him makes him nightmare inducing.

  • Wow! Nice!

  • prolly have to get a wii u if they didn't ruin it because I love smash bros

  • Neat.
