Mega Man II’s Wily Castle Stage Will Be In Super Smash Bros. For 3DS, Too

By Ishaan . July 23, 2014 . 10:00am


Super Smash Bros. will feature different stages on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, but some stages will be common to both versions of the game. One of these stages is the Wily Castle stage, based on Mega Man II.


Director Masahiro Sakurai stated on Miiverse: “In general, there are completely different stages in the 3DS and Wii U version, but we made Wily Castle and the special boxing ring available for both versions!”


“We didn’t forget the Yellow Devil either,” he added. “There may be some small differences in the stages, such as the 3DS stage appearing to be during daylight hours.”

    Seeing this image, makes me want to see Mario taking on Rockman’s stages!

    Rockman blasting through the Mushroom Kingdom would be pretty funny as well. :D

      NES Remix III featuring Capcom? I would kill for that.

      Then check out Super Mario Crossover on Newgrounds

      • Namuro

        That’s pretty cool!

        Seeing how many buster shot it takes to down one Goomba, makes me wonder just how powerful mario’s stomp is. LOL

          The game is pretty old, and is still getting updates from time to time. The original didn’t have Ryu Hayabusa. I haven’t played it in some time, but i wish the guys at new grounds would contact all the IP owners to license the relating content to port it to a Nintendo device (be it 3ds or Wii U).

          Who would’ve thought Mario would be so much funner when playing with completely different characters? I’d love to see the same cast handle the other respective worlds

  • Dareka

    Wow it just needed to be willed into the game.

  • Hagaren

    I’ll enjoy beating that damn yellow blob. I remember raging because of him quite a few times.

    That’s what I assumed since there really isn’t any other possible place in classic Mega Man that’s nearly as memorable as Wily Castle, and adding any other Mega Man game’s stage would be a little off-putting, if you ask me.

    I still hope Snake Man’s theme is on the Wii-U version, love that song the most.

    Sucks to be Wily. Wonder if he can get anything done, what with crazy Smash 3DS kids fighting outside his house in the daytime and the crazy Smash Wii U gangs making a ruckus while he sleeps. Simultaneously, too.

    • J_Joestar

      just imagine him going “Get off Ma Lawn!”

  • AlteisenX

    Yesssssssssssssssss! This was the level I most wanted in the 3DS version lol.

    Yellow Devil.
    The source of my childhood nightmare.
    One of them, that is.

      And then we learned the Pause Exploit, killing him in seconds. Then MMX5 came and ruined our lives again.

      • ZEROthefirst

        Until you learned the exploit to continuously wall jump in the corner out of reach of his attacks.

        • 하세요

          I tried that and still ended up getting hit trying to get back over to actually hurt him. Old fashioned way seems to work best, just such a tedious battle.

          • ZEROthefirst

            Yeah you just have to do it very quickly whenever he melts down and kill your fingers constantly wall jumping in that tiny corner. Of course you can do this with the Gaea Armor, but it’s almost impossible using this thing to get past the insta-k lasers <.<

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Yellow Devil should have been an adventure mode boss.. it would have made alot of players rage *sigh* lol

  • ZEROthefirst

    I just really hope you can turn the Yellow Devil off in general or that the final destination version of this stage keeps the moving platforms. Nothing against the Yellow Devil, but I’d rather enjoy the stage without him popping up every other minute like he does in all of the videos from E3.

    I was hoping for a different megaman type lecel since we were getting twp types fpr pac man. Plus I am disappointed because I keep hearing nothing but negative feedback from this stage.

    • 하세요

      Yellow Devil’s presence is definitely an issue – I’m hoping Sakurai is looking at the internet’s responses in the fact that it appears way, way too often. I love the concept, but he’s on screen way too much.

      They could just not bother and assume people are just going to use the FD version of it anyway, since it’s basically the same thing without the random spawning platforms.

      • Judgephoenix

        Yea after I saw it during the matches I was like this stage is getting turned off lol.

  • MagcargoMan

    It’s really lame how Sonic and Mega Man just have their Brawl stage and Wii U stage as their 3DS stages respectively, but Pac-Man gets 2 unique stages.
