Smash Bros Wii U screenshot shows Kid Icarus stage

Series creator posts another image from upcoming brawler

A new screenshot for Nintendo's upcoming entry in the Smash Bros series has been released, showing one of the stages players will get to trade blows in.

The image of a Kid Icarus themed stage was posted on the game's Miiverse by series creator and director Masahiro Sakurai along with a message: "You can find this statue of the Goddess of Light in one of the stages. She's watching over the arena."

Nintendo recently revealed that King Dedede will be returning as a playable character in the game.

Other confirmed characters include Capcom's Mega Man and Animal Crossing's Villager and Wii Fit Trainer, as well as Rosalina and Luma from Super Mario Galaxy.

Nintendo has also offered an update on gameplay changes it is making, stating that the development team is rethinking edge-hanging, a high-level strategy expert players could use to make battles a little bit harder for their opponents.

"There are many changes being made to attack and defence options for grabbing edges," said Sakurai.

Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are being co-developed by Namco Bandai. The games have not yet been given release dates, though they are expected to launch in 2014.
