GameXplain has posted an analysis video on the new Super Smash Bros. trailer for the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game. A lot of new stages and characters on both versions of the game were analyzed, but a whopping three stages from the Zelda series made their way into the trailer of the game! Hit the jump to learn about the stages and what they contain.
The first Zelda stage shown in the trailer is for the 3DS version of the game, and is the Spirit Tracks stage whose screenshot was previously shown. The trailer showcases combatants fighting on-board of the Spirit Train, with Toon Link even acting as the conductor, and he looks none too pleased about all the fighting that is going on! Additional platforms are occasionally flown in by a pair of crows, but for the most part all of the action takes place on the Spirit Train as it passes through the world of Spirit Tracks. Whether it passes through any notable landmarks from the game remains to be seen.
The second stage shown will also debut on the 3DS, and it is Gerudo Valley from Ocarina of Time 3D. A lot of detail was put into designed this level, and you can even see the bow practice targets in the background! Another interesting feature of this stage is that the bridge is full destructible, and can/will eventually break apart. It is unknown as to whether or not it is something that happens as time goes on, or if the characters can damage it themselves. An interesting detail that the trailer pointed out was that once the bridge collapses, fire appears in the background! Is this what causes the bridge to collapse? Can the player cause this using items such as the Fire Flower? What effect does it have on the battle, and can it act as a stage hazard? Those questions still remain, though as more information becomes available, I’m sure things will become clearer.
The final stage showcased for the Wii U version of the game was Skyloft from Skyward Sword. A panoramic screenshot was previously revealed, but some interesting new things have shown. The characters will battle it out on floating platforms as they travel to different parts of Skyloft, including the Bazaar, the Plaza Tower, and on the residential district near the graveyard, and by the Goddess Statue. This is similar to how the stage of Isle Delfino worked in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. These are just a few of the areas in which characters will duke it out at, and it is expected that more areas of Skyloft will be accessible.
