This Week in Super Smash Bros.

06/06/14 - New Super Smash Bros. U

Sakurai delivers two new stages, a new item, delicious Brewster's-brand coffee, and more in this week's update.

Welcome to This Week in Super Smash Bros., our weekly recap of the various updates, images, and information regarding the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games for Wii U and 3DS. Here's a look at what the game's creator, Masahiro Sakurai, shared with us this week, along with his comments.

Monday, 06/02/14: Mushroom Kingdom U (New stage)

Here's a new Wii U stage, Mushroom Kingdom U! It brings to life the worlds of New Super Mario Bros. U.

When Kamek casts a spell, the stage transforms drastically! That said, this is not what you would call a moving stage… …By the way, this stage will be playable in the demo version of the game for E3, a game expo that starts on June 10 in Los Angeles.

Tuesday, 06/03/14: Tortimer Island trophy (New trophy type)

Some stages have been shrunk down and made into trophies, like this one of Tortimer Island for the 3DS version. I wish I could have a figurine like this in real life.

Wednesday, 06/04/14: Boomerang (New item)

Here's a new item that we've thrown in--the boomerang. As you'd guess, it'll fly back into your hands after you throw it, and if you keep catching it, its attack power grows with each throw! However, opponents can nab the boomerang out of the air, so it might be an easier item to use in Smash Run.

Thursday, 06/05/14: The Roost (Town & City stage feature)

Brewster brings The Roost back to Smash Bros. Nothing beats watching a battle of famous fighters with a freshly brewed cup of coffee.

Friday, 06/06/14: Coliseum (New stage)

Here's Ike, Marth and…a brand-new stage!

We've added a familiar setting from the Fire Emblem series, the Coliseum. In the original game, this place is filled with both hope and despair. There is machinery in the ground that activates variable platforms.

Good job Curtis.  :) Looks like this will be a great addition to the site.

Also in the news this week, Luigi gets nosey.

I like this week ending review for these pictures. It will allow me to dissect and predict Sakuria's actions in one convenient spot.

As a huge fan of Majora's Mask I'm a little disappointed that Skull Kid isn't a playable character. In a similar fashion to Pokémon trainer, it might have been cool to see Skull Kid utilise the three transformations from Majora's Mask and to have them act as fighting stances.

Ah well. I'm just grateful that A Link Between Worlds and now Smash are acknowledging the existence of Majora's Mask. It gives me some hope that we'll eventually get that 3DS remake, and eventually a direct sequel (although I highly doubt the latter).

Need Lucario, Zoroark and Magnus (from Kid Icarus)

"Princess Rosalina & Lum"? First off, it's Luma. Secondly, Rosalina has never been established as being a princess.

Rosalina is a Galactic Queen. A hell of a classy one too.

Give me a break. Classy? You do know they're not real right?
