We’ve already had an obscure Japanese addition to Super Smash Bros. 4 this week in the form of a Captain Rainbow trophy, but if that’s not enough for you then you might be pleased to hear about the new stage for the 3DS version. It is based on Tomodachi Collection, a Japan-only DS game which received a 3DS sequel (Tomodachi Collection: New Life) last year.

It’s a life simulation series similar to Animal Crossing, wherein players use Miis to interact and make friends. The new stage in today’s Smash “pic of the day” reflects the series’ casual nature with a shot of a typical living room. Smash series director Masahiro Sakurai shares on Miiverse:

“Looks like someone’s enjoying the bachelor life in this pad.”

If I were to guess, I’d say that the background will probably change to show different rooms and other familiar locations from the Tomodachi games. As if the Find Mii and Pilotwings stages weren’t enough, I’d say it’s extremely likely at this point that a Mii will be revealed as a playable Smash fighter.

    Mii’s wouldn’t be too bad in the game, it could work. Also it wouldn’t be the first time that Sakurai put things in Smash that used to be unknown or obscure to the west (looking at Fire Emblem).

      What is so obscure about Mii’s in the west? Just curious. I think it would be cool to use Mii’s as a Pokemon Trainer or VIllager.

        My comment came out the wrong way, I meant that stuff like the Captain Rainbow trophy is part of what you’d expect in smash.
