Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed a brand new stage for the 3DS version. The upcoming brawler’s new stage is named Golden Plains and hails from New Super Mario Bros. 2, where the area’s chock full of golden coins ready for players to collect. But the coins aren’t just for aesthetic merits, Sakurai also mentioned that players can turn their chosen fighter into a lustrous metal if 100 coins are collected within the colourful stage.
The new 3DS stage joins a variety of exclusive handheld areas, including Lumiose City from Pokemon X and Y, as well as Tortimer Island from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Here’s what the esteemed director said on Miiverse, including exactly what type of attack bonus players will receive when the total number of coins are collected.
“New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a game where you collect tons of coins. Thus, it’s only natural that many coins will appear in this stage… Wait, is this really Super Smash Bros??
“If you collect 100 coins, you transform into a gold fighter! For a short period of time, your attack power will increase and you won’t flinch when you receive attacks. This unique stage’s name is Golden Plains and it’s exclusive to the 3DS version.”
