Super Smash Bros. will come out for Nintendo 3DS this summer and is slated for release this winter on Wii U. The roster in both games will be the same, but the stages will differ depending on the system. Here’s a list of stages confirmed for each system as during Nintendo Direct.


Nintendo 3DS Stages

Reset Bomb Forest (Kid Icarus)

3D Land (Mario)

Spirit Train (Zelda)

Gerudo Valley (Zelda)

Arena Ferox (Fire Emblem)

Tortimer Island (Animal Crossing)

Living Room (Nintendogs)

Prism Tower (Pokemon)

Rainbow Road (Mario)

Find Mii (Streetpass Quest)

Balloon Fight (Balloon Fight)

Jungle Japes (Donkey Kong)


Wii U

Mario Galaxy (Mario)

Pyroshpere (Metroid)

Town and City (Animal Crossing)

PilotWings (Pilot Wings)

Skyloft (Zelda)

Windy Hilly (Sonic)

Wii Fit Studio (Wii Fit)

Palutena’s Temple (Kid Icarus)

Stages common to both platforms will have different layouts. The 3DS stages will have two songs per stage while the Wii U version will have a treasure trove of songs to select from similar to Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


The Super Smash Bros. fighters will run at 60 frames per second on Nintendo 3DS, but some assist trophies will run at 30 frames per second.


Wii U and 3DS will have elements that link the two systems together which will be revealed at a later date.

    Great! More reason to buy both.

    Aw, I missed the first part of the video, but only two songs per stage? T_T

    • KoRLumen

      For the 3DS version, yeah. A fuller audio experience awaits on the Wii U version.

    • I waited until it was over and watched the whole thing from start to finish on YouTube for 2 reasons. The first and most obvious is because I was on the move. The 2nd reason is because most streams usually lag for me.

    It’s worth mentioning that they’ll both have “retro stages” a la Mario Kart, and the selection will also be different across 3DS and Wii U. :)

  • Hello, old news! Lol! The list of stages is cool, though. When they mentioned the bit about the music, I immediately thought:
    3DS = Melee
    Wii U = Brawl

  • Kornelious

    Okay awesome, some new stages…Now can we here more about THE CHARACTERS!

  • Krisi92

    Find Mii is the most epic stage.
