New Smash Bros DLC adds 15 new stages to Wii U eight-player mode

Super Smash Bros for Wii U Review

The latest 316MB Wii U update brings fifteen new unlockable stages for the eight-player brawl mode in Super Smash Bros.

Previously, the Wii U Smash title limited players to only a few stages for their all out eight-player matches, as many of them are just too small to contain all the rampant craziness that goes on.

The update, available today, adds nine regular stages and six Final Destination stage variants for eight-player matches. They include:

Regular Stages:

  • Mario Circuit
  • Luigi’s Mansion
  • Pyrosphere
  • Norfair
  • Lylat Cruise
  • Pokémon Stadium 2
  • Animal Crossing – Town and City
  • Animal Crossing – Smashville
  • Wii Fit Studio

Final Destinations:

  • Mario Galaxy
  • Mario Circuit (X)
  • Kirby: The Great Cave Offensive
  • Lylat Cruise
  • Pokémon Stadium 2
  • Animal Crossing – Town and City

Despite being released back in December, additional content is still in production for Nintendo’s smashing success of a fighter. A free Miiverse stage is in the works, as well as the Mewtwo character DLC and tournament mode.

Recently, Smash creator Masahiro Sakurai hinted that this latest version of Super Smash Bros. might just be his last game project. Ever. He had previously suggested that the Wii U and 3DS version might be his last Smash title, simply due to the sheer scale of trying to 1-up himself each time.

The Super Smash Bros. series began back in 1999 on the N64, and has continuously impressed audiences with successive titles on ever evolving consoles.

“It was very tough this time around,” Sakurai explained in his weekly column for Famitsu, a Japanese magazine. “I doubt I’ll be able to go on making games if it continues like this. But, I consider myself lucky that so many people seem to enjoy [Smash Bros.]”

Admittedly, the news is a bummer, but after delivering an experience that is an absolute 10 out of 10, it will be tough to try and top it. Sakurai might be right to bow out after the bar was set so high rather than suffer to wrath of angry fans if the next Smash game doesn’t deliver the same one, two, punch!
