Fire Emblem’s Coliseum Stage Is In Super Smash Bros.

By Ishaan . June 6, 2014 . 11:01am

Last night, Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai revealed a new stage for the game—the Coliseum from the Fire Emblem series.


Sakurai wrote on Miiverse: “In the original game, this place is filled with both hope and despair. There is machinery in the ground that activates variable platforms.”


Sakurai only showed off images of the stage from the Wii U version of the game. It is unknown whether the stage will be present in the Nintendo 3DS version as well.

    Huh, i can only guess that since we have the Awakening stage on the 3DS that this will be a Wii U exclusive…

  • Frankie

    Pretty cool stage. I doubt the stage will not be on the 3DS version considering Fire Emblem is more of a handheld game.

    • ZEROthefirst

      The 3DS version already has the arena stage from Awakening so unless they decide to bring that to the Wii U as well then I highly doubt this will make it over.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    This screenshot just makes me want to see SMT x FE in action even more.

    • Thatguy

      This screenshot makes me want to see completely new FE on WiiU

      • Linhua

        … all of this with all of my heart.

      • SetzerGabbiani

        That would also be good. Now that the 3D animations are more dynamic than in the GC days, I would totally go for this. Maybe even an HD remake of RD/PoR with Awakening style animation updates.

      • keithmaxx

        If a new FE for every Ninty console so far is to be the basis, I see one coming soon. I hope that’s separate from SMTxFE, though.

    • GOLD

      oh yeah….that is a thing

  • fireemblembeast

    Ah, the good old Arena. We had good times, we had bad times. Glad to see this as a stage at last…it looks pretty great, too!

  • It’s gonna be banned.

  • MasterScrub

    Hope and despair, you say?

    • Satori Satya

      There is quite a lot of hope and despair among those that are STILL waiting for this to come true:

      • Time Sage

        Should have gone with Fenrich’s naked Crom posters instead.

        • Satori Satya

          Nah. It had to be SFW to avoid alienating anyone.

          Especially Nintendo.

        • Kurai Buzzwagon

          Should just go with Frederick overall
          Clearly hes the real hero of Fire emblem

      • O_O Master Clueless

        Actually I’d prefer Lucina, she was trained by Chrom thus she fights like him just her stance is different, also would love to see a actual female lord from the Fire Emblem, series in SSB4

        • Satori Satya

          You have a point there…. but…

        • Luke Blackwood

          Actually, her fighting style resembles Marth’s more than Chrom’s. Of course, in chapter 4 there is the whole “wow mirror moves” cutscene, but their in-game classes attack in different fashions, Chrom’s being much more reckless and brute (kinda like Ike’s) whereas Lucina’s is more elegant and refinate (somewhat like Marth’s)

      • Eh, I’d rather see Robin.

        • Satori Satya

          The only way that would work is if you could customize the character.

          Or at least have several variations of him/her like they did with the Villager

          • …Or have Robin’s hood up at all times like in the CGs and opening cinematic.

          • Satori Satya

            I guess so.

            But fortunately, we won’t need to worry too much about that one.

      • HershelLousyton

        I’m holding out for Robin/The Tactician personally, but I’d be okay with hunky Chrom or Lucina. Also, why does that image remind me of this?

        • ChuChu

          That’s one messed up hand.

    • Shadowman

      This is all types of wrongs lol

  • Amalaira

    Who is that cute girl on the right??
    Oh wait…

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh, traps… so it’ll be kinda like the Pokemon Stadium, then? I can dig that. Would’ve been cool if that actually happeend in FE:A though…

  • Raltrios

    Ah, the money-maker. Good to see it.
    I pray that it doesn’t bust out Swordmasters that crit before you can back out :/

  • James Enk

    Great looking stage, love FE

  • Akemi Homura

    Chrom Chromfirmed for E3?!

    /conspiracy theories

    • Rasputing

      The only Arena in Awakening is Arena Ferox, it doesn’t have the generic arenas (which it seems this stage is based off of). He’s still likely, but this stage doesn’t affect him either way.

      • Akemi Homura

        Oh, you don’t have to tell me that :>

        I follow the pre-release stuff very closely, I was just disturbed by the lack of “Chromfirmed” in the comments.

  • caedus

    Is the stage gimmick that every feew turns a berserker with a Killer Axe comes out to ruin your day?

  • God

    Looks awesome! I ussally used Final Destination for serious fights of skill, since it’s, you know, Final Destination, it’s in the name, but this is way more awesome!

  • ChuChu

    First pic is like anytime now Ike is ready to snap marth in half.
