Smash Bros. 4 3DS screenshot reveals Animal Crossing stage

Duke it out on the tropical island

A new Smash Bros. 4 screenshot has revealed that the 3DS version will feature a stage set on the tropical island of the latest 3DS title, Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

This is the latest stage to be confirmed for the portable title, and comes after the prior revelation of the Animal Crossing stage in the Wii U version of the game, which differs greatly from the 3DS stage seen below.


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.

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.
