In this latest screenshot of the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. 4, Masahiro Sakurai reveals that there are two different versions of the boxing ring stage in the game. One is the Smash Bros. version, as portrayed above, and the other is from the Punch-Out!! series.
“Pic of the day. There are actually two versions of the boxing ring stage! This ring is the Smash Bros. version…”
Sakurai then continued to post in the comment section of Miiverse and revealed a screenshot of the Punch-Out!! version of the boxing ring stage, featuring King Dedede and Kirby.
“…and this one is the Punch Out!! W.V.B.A. design. King Dedede really likes fighting in the ring, doesn’t he?”
What differences may these two stages have in store for Smash players, despite their similarities? We’ll have to wait until later in 2014 to find out!
