This Is One Of The Fire Emblem Stages In Super Smash Bros. For 3DS

By Ishaan . December 2, 2013 . 9:30am

Update: A number of our readers have pointed out that the stage actually is from Fire Emblem: Awakening. Despite having played the game, I didn’t recognize it in the slightest.


Original Story:

Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 3DS will have at least one Fire Emblem stage, but this one doesn’t appear to be from Fire Emblem: Awakening. The stage in question (above) actually looks reminiscent of one section of the Castle Siege stage from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but with a number of differences. Director Masahiro Sakurai showed it off last week.

Additionally, Sakurai also highlighted one of the visual changes being made to the game. On Miiverse, he posted the above screenshot, revealing: “A red-black effect now appears when you’re hit by a strong blow. It’ll only appear when you have high damage, so when you see this you’re in trouble—and you’re probably about to get KO’d!”

    The Fire Emblem stage looks like the arena at Ferox to me. Then again, I never played and I can’t be bothered to check beyond simple recollection. Ah well.

    • J_Joestar

      The background definitely is, the actual foreground though can’t really be the same since Ferox Arena was basically just a flat ring.

  • Andrew

    It’s clearly Regna Ferox.

  • TheExile285

    Looks pretty cool

  • FlobotingIt

    Is that some sort of Magnet gun that Mario has? Or like a Smash ball firer?

    • Chaos_Knight

      Its the new Ray Gun

  • Lord Búho

    I guess whoever wrote this didn’t play FE: Awakening, that’s clearly Arena Ferox.

  • IS | 桂木

    Uh… it IS from Fire Emblem: Awakening, lol. It’s Arena Ferox

    • Kaetsu

      What’s funny is that Arena Ferox was announced as a map months ago.

  • J_Joestar

    The Red & Black hit effect kinda reminds me of Dragon Element in MH3U.
    Another Capcom Guest incoming?!?!? j/k

  • Crevox

    I’m waiting for that person to post today’s screenshot and say Ishaan never posts it

    But I have no idea personally

  • AnimeRemix

  • fireemblembeast

    Yeah, I think it was pretty obvious that was from FE… Now lets see the accompanying characters!

  • ElAbuelo69

    Ishaan please correct the article as other commenters have cleary pointed out.

  • Sperium3000

    Oh, great! New colorful, interesting stages for people to refuse to play in because they’re douchebags!

  • Post corrected! Thanks, folks. I didn’t recognize Arena Ferox at all. It’s been a year since I played FE:A, though, so that probably explains why.

      Not to mention it looks totally different apart from the background. The real Arena Ferox isn’t a ring of ground in the middle, but a flat arena.

      • J_Joestar

        Guess they felt they didn’t want a walled in Final Destination as a stage so they added stuff to jump on to.

  • Sergio Briceño

    Red black lightning effect? You are working with a Namco team and you brought the ugliest thing about tekken?

  • Pockystix

    c’mon, Let Lucina be an alt form for Marth, like Male Wiifit Trainer~
