    • Josiah Parsons

      This has me curious. Special Announcement coming soon?

      • Hugh Quinn

        Smash Bros Nintendo direct?

        • Josiah Parsons

          That’s the only real possibility. November timeframe? that would be a great time for them to restart interest by revealing a dozen or so characters and the story mode.

          • Genesect4ssb4

            There is no story mode. Probably something like Adventure mode. And do you play Smash for the multiplayer or the story?

          • rp17

            Both actually

          • Josiah Parsons

            I’m with rp17, but you’re right. adventure mode for Brawl was kinda bad. This time, it’ll be better!

          • Hugh Quinn

            there won’t be a story mode

    • Slug_DC

      That would be really odd timing for a release. That’s also a Monday and doesn’t Nintendo generally release first & second party titles on Sundays?

    • MetroidZero


    • Nintedward

      People get stuff wrong all the time though this is interesting.

    • Jack5221

      Well, they never really specified when in 2014 Smash Bros would release. They simply say “2014” in the trailer. So really… Any date in 2014 is possible.

      • Shota

        was expecting fall 2014. spring 2014 comes mario kart 8 then later on smash bros i thought. maybe i cant predict

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I think it’ll most likely be out around late spring next year.

    • Merrfn

      That date confused me. I thought it was saying we have to wait an entire year. If smash bros gets out in the holiday season that would be huge for the Wii U!

  • Saikyo

    Got the same email, but it has to.be.a mistake, no way this game is ready before holidays 2014

  • A_7

    This stage was confirmed back when sonic got cofirmed.
    It was in the short trailer!

    • Shota


    • Mario

      That’s no surprise.

    • Lusunup

      It wasn’t confirmed.

  • Lusunup

    I and alot of other probably figure it out already since the reveal on sonic. It wasn’t announced that it was from Lost worlds but by the look of the grass, and the way the land is shape we could guess it.

  • MetroidZero

    I’m going to be blunt–this is because I am impatient when it comes to Smash–but, when are we going to see some more characters? All the Pics of the Day this week kinda sucked…Tomorrow better be good lol. The last time I neglected to look up an update, Olimar was confirmed LOL. My luck. 🙁

    • Shota

      maybe next month a new character reveal. meta knight wario or maybe marth

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        or maybe a newcomer

        • Shota

          yeah that would be even more awesome.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            what you Shota and MetroidZero what for newcomer
            i want Classic Link (i mean the Link from a link between worlds)

          • Shota

            i really want chrom

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            its possible because there’s a fire emblem awakening stage for 3DS

          • Shota

            yeah. but sakurai has yet to confirm him.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Chrom shall be confirm to Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U don’t worry

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      i wonder that samus will turn into zero suit samus. well it must be because the final smash of hers

  • Genesect4ssb4

    This was confirmed back when Sonic was confirmed. In fact, there are several screen shots on the official website of Sonic on Windy Hill.

  • Sdudyoy

    I’ve already seen this.

  • I actually love how designers communicate with the community on Wii U personally rather than letting journalists announce it on a 3rd party app

  • bizzy gie


  • Mario

    I’m a gonna beat you Sonic in Super smash bros WiiU/3ds!

  • TaintedXGamer

    i’m still unclear on sonic’s moves but that punch looks new, I presume they add/changed/intergated his lost world moves somehow in his moveset. I ‘m also enjoying Sonic lost world, Everytime i see Eggman i keep hearing Baldy Mc Nosehair XD

  • Bomberman

    I hope I get confirmed. My life has been pretty boring now.

  • Merrfn

    Does anybody else find these screenshots graphically impressive?

  • Rinslowe

    Nothin but the goodness here people.

  • Macabre

    Sonic Lost World isn’t getting great reviews, but I’m still excited to try it! Anyone else in the US looking forward to its release next week? What do those think that already have it?

    • TaintedXGamer

      it’s been good so far, I’m enjoying the game. (^_^)

  • videogamedude52

    There is also a Pikmin 3 level in the new Super Smash Bros. too!

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Is there? That’s a bit of a head scratcher.

      • videogamedude52

        Yea it was in the new Sonic announcement trailer for SSB.

  • The True Gamer

    Sonic is a plague to Nintendo. Sonic shouldn’t even be associated with Nintendo

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I think it’s fine. You have Sonic Lost World on Wii U, so why not have it in Smash Bros? Makes sense to me.

  • demann78

    I wish sonic lost worlds was good. It looks like the characters
    are now bigger in smash bros. This is great.

  • Wiiluigi

    Sonic stage in SSB? Sounds good! Fighting in a stage where one of the character comes from? How can that not make sense?

    Side note I tried the lost world demo and I was on the fence as to buy or not and I must say it was entertaining. Game design looks great. Not sure on the level name and only played one stage and I was rushing. But good enough to make me really start thinking about this game to the point that I want it.
