From five minute smash fests on Final Destination to forty-five minute stock fights at the Hyrule Temple Super Smash Bros has featured as many iconic maps has it has characters, and based on the video feed released earlier in the week, the latest installments will be no exception. As expected, the majority of the presentation was devoted to showing off the various new aspects of the game, including stages. But veteran players will recognize at least two arenas in which they can destroy their friend’s egos and assert dominance over the last handful of chips.
Donky Kong’s home stage, the brutally unforgiving Jungle Japes from Brawl, is back for the 3DS version of the game. Hopefully the game being on a portable will prevent me from throwing it out of frustration due to a poorly timed Klaptrap attack.

Yes, the owners of the WiiU can look forward to dodging cannonballs and other projectiles from Meta Knight’s flying fortress. I was never a fan of any of the flying stages in Super Smash. They always seemed too distracting. The Halberd does seem an odd pick, but then again they did add the Wii Fit Trainer as a character so I guess anything is up for grabs at this point.
If your favorite classic stage is nowhere to be found, don’t fret. Director Masahiro Sakurai implies more classic stages are in the works saying “Obviously each system will have different past stages.” As of now, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Poké Floats and Great Bay from Melee.
