Zelda, Mario And Mega Man In A Wrestling Ring? Yep, It’s Super Smash Bros.

By Ishaan . January 13, 2014 . 9:30am

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai describes the above screenshot thus: “The ropes surrounding the ring. You can actually use the stretchiness of the ropes to do a spring jump. However, you can’t pull on them to launch yourself sideways in a lariat attack though.”


Alongside the screenshot above, Sakurai also posted the other screenshots you see below to the game’s official website last week. Alongside the screenshot featuring Rainbow Road, Sakurai stated: “Watch out for the Shy Guys driving down Rainbow Road.”


It looks like those will be stage hazards on the Rainbow Road stage, at least on 3DS.

    I wonder if Rainbow Road on WiiU will be from MK8. 3DS version seems to be 7.

    • Chaos_Knight

      I assume from Wii or an original design. Kinda like how Mario Circuit in Brawl is.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Maybe Nikki from swapnote will be a 3DS trophy

    Looks like I got the high score for Dislikes :3

    • Serge

      Special attack: Flasher.

    • idrawrobots

      Too soon. It hurts.

        The sooner the better
        (I apologize to any pure hearted Swap Note fans still aching over Nikki’s departure. She is sorely missed.)

          I was lucky, I was able to get my hands on her Mii via swap note, some how, i forgot, and I got her Mii on my WiiU also.

          So while she doesn’t appear on swap note anymore, her Mii will always be with me.

        • Thatguy

          162 pure hearted Swap Note fans hate you

    • Arcana Drill

      she could be interesting as a 3ds exclusive trophy. It would make sense, and be cool.

    • PreyMantis

      I would love for her to be a playable character instead. Just imagine her drawing notes that comes alive like Sai’s.

    • hazelnut1112

      I hope Nintendo gives her a job somehow.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Isnt that the Punch-out boxring?

    • TheGioG

      Looks an awful lot like it. Playable Little Mac… confirmed?
      (Hoping to GOD that Mac Baby joins our ranks sooner than later)

    • 하세요

      It’s just a Smash Boxing Ring, generic stage by the looks of it. It was one of the first, if not THE first stage to be shown many months ago.

  • Learii

    too bad we can’t use the ropes for launch lol because jump on the ropes is fake i mean look at Mario feets and look at the ropes i think the ropes too small for Mario feets

  • Dianatos

    Zelda is looking more slashy and less sparkly as of late. Unless she could already do something like that and I don’t know about it.

  • If looks could kill, I think Zelda would be the greatest threat…. SERIOUSLY!, I had no idea that woman could look so naturally… evil and/or pissed off :O
    Anyway, I wonder if we’ll get a Mute City’esque stage, unless Rainbow Road manages to fill that slot somehow – which would be rather cool!

  • Edward Parker

    I need this game now!!! Both versions!!!

  • Jeffrey Thrash

    King DeDeDe still looks hilarious.
