There has been more than a mild amount of Super Smash Bros. news arriving today, as the review embargo for the 3DS iteration lifted early this morning. Our review praised the game for being a true-to-form portable iteration of the beloved series, and while fans are eagerly awaiting the portable installment’s arrival in October, there’s still a certain appeal that the Wii U version has.
One of the main attractors that the home console version has is the number of exclusive stages that it’ll be featuring. Indeed, the two games will have a different catalogue of battlefields to choose from; this premise adds validity to consumer desires to purchase both iterations of the fighting game.
The latest stage announced to be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was none other than the returning Castle Siege, and now another one called Gamer has joined the platform’s library of exclusive battlegrounds. Based off of the Game & Wario mini-game of the same name, Gamer appears to throw players into a zany meta-game that requires their constant awareness to avoid being spotted by 9-Volt’s mom.
According to the creator of Super Smash Bros., Masahiro Sakurai, the stage itself is chaotic. Whether or not that’s a good thing is up for debate, but there’s no denying that the aren will be wholly unique.
“Pic of the day. Here’s a stage exclusive to the Wii U version: Gamer. Don’t let Mom find you while you’re duking it out!!”
“If Mom does spot you, she’ll scold you and blow you away!! …I’ve never seen a fighting action game as chaotic as this one.”
While the contents of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS version were all outed by leaked ESRB footage, there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding the Wii U edition – which is something of a relief. There are still many other aspects about the more powerful iteration that aren’t known.
With the GameCube controller bundle for Smash now officially posted by retailers, however, more news on the Big N’s home console version will likely be arriving sooner rather than later. In the meantime, stay tuned to Game Rant for more news on the series as soon as it hits.
What do you think of the new stage? Let us know in the comments!
Super Smash Bros. arrived on the 3DS on October 3, 2014, while the Wii U version currently has an anticipated Holiday 2014 release date.
