    Because it doesn't matter how many characters you have f you don't have anywhere to fight.

    Desires?
    Ideas?
    Would you rather more casual stages or legal stages?
    All of that and more can go hhere.
    I found this really neat Japanese Mario 64 guidebook thing and I thought the way they presented Bowser's sub hangar made for a really cool Smash Bros. stage idea:

    Any stages you guys have ever wanted to see?

    - An actual Bowser Castle stage (not the final third of the Paper Mario stage)
    - Ultra Space
    - Doc Louis' Training Room
    - Gluglug Lagoon
    - The Lady Liberty

    That's basically my stage wishlist at the moment. :p

    Did you ever see that epic Mario RPG level from Smash Bros. XP?



    So underrated. There's actually a cycle where the chandeliers come crashing down just like the game, and then it starts all over again.

    I really wouldn't mind the way it was depicted in the original Paper Mario either:

    Skytown or Sanctuary Fortress from Metroid (no more lava stages pls)
    A Delfino Plaza like stage based on Xenoblade Chronicles that takes you to several of Bionis' locations.
    A Mario galaxy stage where you actually fly to other planets and it's more dynamic.

    An actual Fatal Frame stage would be such a beautiful sight. That dark atmosphere, various ghastly cameos, and it can be a bit more grounded than Luigi's Mansion.

    Just imagine what scary tracks would be playing the whole time. Like Tall Woman's encounter theme.

    I definitely want a regular Bowser's Castle. What's too bad is that they couldn't have just had Peach's Castle(Melee) come back with two forms, day and night. Day being Peach's, and Night based upon Bowser's.

    I'd like to see a DK stage based upon the minecraft levels overall. Instead of just jungle levels.

    A Pokemon stage directly based upon the routes would be great. Albeit, it's hard to think of how to make it unique from some grass-like stages.

    Between Worlds

    This stage takes place on both Hyrule Castle and Lorule Castle from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The portal would open in the background... everyone becomes 2D in the void... then becomes 3D when they exit the portal. Portrait paintings serve as floating platforms in the void. The battle goes back and forth between the two castles.

    Aether Foundation

    This island is from Pokemon Sun & Moon. The stage takes place in the outside area with the trees, mountains, and rivers. The portal opens in the background and a random Ultra Beast appears and attacks the stage.

    Phendrana Drifts is one of my favorite areas in games and it is certainly my most wanted stage.

    Skytown from Prime 3 would be pretty cool too. Shame neither have any relevancy


    Hoping for Noctilum if we get Elma because I LOVE that area.

    This one is preety standard opition for a DK stage that fits the franchise. And it needs to be King K. Roll's home stage if he gets in.
    Fungi Forest
    [​IMG]
    Another DK stage. The clock is its main platform and there is a button that can be used to change the light cycle, and depending on whether it's day or night, different threats appear.
    Cerulean Cave
    [​IMG]
    Mewtwo's home stage. And it is actually very simple. Just a couple of pokemon appear sometimes. If you don't bother them you will be ok.
    The Underworld
    [​IMG]
    With a giant talkative Hades in the background and the underworld army, it could be a very funny mess.

    I personally would love to see a version of Bowser's Castle be in an official Smash title. It's so iconic and yet hasn't made it in yet. Thankfully the PM mod team did things right and put the stage in PM.

    A stage based on Mario Party. Seriously, why has that spin-off been neglected throughout the Smash series?

    Have you guys ever considered the Minecart level from DKC as a potential stage? I think it would be very unique as a stage fighting inside the Minecart while the Minecart is in motion. Wouldn't be a tourney viable stage but still a fun one.

    I also think the Temple of Time from OoT would make for a good stage. It would transition from the lobby area towards the Pedestal of Time and then inside the Chamber of Sages where the Sages act similar to the summons from the Midgar stage.

    I think that Krazy Kremland from DKC2 would be an interesting stage.



    The stage would be similar to Big Blue from Melee but with skull carts instead of futuristic cars.

    Stage hazards could be the gates that open if the green check barrels were hit and close if the red x barrels were hit.... and the Kremlings in skull carts who throw barrels at the fighters.

    BRING BACK POKEFLOATS.

    Okay, but seriously, I'd prefer if we got some old legal stages back like Fountain of Dreams, Prism Tower, Yoshi's Story from Melee, etc.

    Personally, I still want Phendrana Drifts. It's one of my favorite ares in gaming and it would be nice to see. Shame it won't happen from a lack of relevancy.

    I'd like a few other "never gonna happen" stages like Traverse Town, Balamb Garden, the Reset Bomb Depot, and Skytown. Just a little less.


    Also to answer my own questions, the more legal stages the better. They are pretty much the only ones I play other than Skyloft every once and a while.

    I suppose Hyrule Castle from BoTW would be kinda neat. I have absolutely no idea how it would work, but it'd a cool nod nontheless.

    BOTW Zora Dungeon spoiler -

    How about a recreation of the already-iconic Vah'Ruta battle? In a fashion similar to Big Blue's, the platforms under the fighter's feet would be Zoras - including Sidon carrying Link? idk - swimming in the water in at an extremely fast pace . In the meantime, Vah'Ruta would throw icy blocks at the fighters from the background; in result, a very VERY gimmicky stage, but one that's very promising for crazy action fun in 8-player Smash.

    Guess that would be too much spoiler territory and it would ruin the pleasure of discovering it on our own in the original game though. :/

    Final Destination (Melee) and Battlefield (Melee), please. So what if it's redundant? I like these stages for their abstract backgrounds.

    But I'd also like to see a Mario Party stage, such as Bowser Nightmare or Clockwork Tower.

    Because that was MY idea and Nintendo stole it. But they didn't even put it in the main game so I'm offended by that.

    Other than that, Bowser's castle is always going to be my main request. With all sorts of traps and lava. Yeah, I don't expect it to be legal but I expect it to be representative of Bowser's castle

    I just remembered something, you know what we don't have already that'd be great and hasn't been mentioned yet? A Modern Kirby stage! Bonus points if it's based off of either Cookie Country or Haltmann works H.Q. and/or legal.

    Stages I'd like to see.

    * Yiga clan hideout (Breath of the Wild, mainly for the song...)
    * Bowser's Castle (Or his theme park from super Mario 3D World, we're kind of overdue for a stage that's mainly for Bowser)
    * Ultra Space (Pokemon Sun & Moon)

    I'd like to see Fourside from Melee return as well, kind of miss that stage.

    Even if we don't get a Wonderful 101 character in the next Smash game, I would love to see a stage based on Blossom City, in the same vein as Isle Delfino or Skyloft - have a platform (or a ship) fly around the city, landing at or passing through some of the ridiculous action setpieces that the game has to offer.

    -Super Mario 3D World stage
    -NES Remix
    -Tourian
    -Kingdom III
    -Access ARK
    -1, 2, Switch stage, just for kicks
    -Studiopolis Zone
    -Tetris and/or Puyo Puyo
    -Definitely a Splatoon stage
    -Obscure Nintendo arcade game stage (Donkey Kong 3 or Radar Scope)
    -Perhaps New Donk City?

    Since I'm going by the assumption that it'll be a SSB4 port, I want every stage from both Wii U & 3DS versions to make it comprehensive.

    I'd love to see these:

    - An Alola Stage (Iki Town, Po Town, Aether Foundation, Ultra Space, the Battle Tree, or a touring stage would all be nice)
    - A Gyromite Stage
    - Inkopolis
    - The Lady Liberty
    - Gluglug Lagoon
    - N. Sanity Beach


    Yeah, those last few are tied to specific newcomers making it in, so what? :p

    Also keep Arena Ferox.

    Yes, well...this is a bit of a stretch, but a stage from the Tekken universe might be interesting. I'd want the Arena or Sakura Schoolyard from Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Think of them as Boxing Ring and Coliseum, respectively.

    Your guess is as good as mine
    Melee Peach's Castle truly deserves to return, as does Big Blue, Pokefloats, Rainbow Cruise and also maybe Spear Pillar. Also they gotta bring back a lot of the good 3ds stages while leaving the more hectic wii u ones behind.
    An idea I like is a Popples stage from Panel de Pon. It could be a right-to-left scrolling stage that goes through all the different fairy worlds connected by rainbow bridges with different hazards in each world (flames in Flare's, rushing water in Elias', gravity changes in Seren's, thick woods that restrict movement in Thiana's etc) it clearly ain't tournament worthy but it'll be fun.
    A Splatoon stage would be tons of fun too, likely Urchin Underpass. Have splat bombs and charger shots as hazards with the occasional inkstrike and killer wail.
    A Valla stage from FE Fates could also work with floating platforms and stuff.
    Pokemon Sun/Moon stage and a BoTW stage should definitely be in there too.

    They just gotta find a balance between making stages with hazards and fighting the stage itself cause Pyrosphere and Wily Castle are big offenders of this.

    Bowser Castle - Mario Kart series

    [​IMG]

    Way long overdue.


    The Stage - Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

    [​IMG]

    Eldin Bridge's shape with hazard extravaganza.


    Any new area from DKC2 or Tropical Freeze

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Really, any location that isn't a jungle would be welcome, especially if it comes from those games.


    SkyTown - Metroid Prime 3

    [​IMG]

    With how unfairly omitted Metroid Prime 3's representation was in Smash 4, this stage would be a great way to recover this fault, not to mention Steamlord hazard and stuff.


    Sector 6 (NOC) - Metroid Fusion

    [​IMG]

    This would be the new "Temple" of Smash, as to know an unexpected stage from a less relevant but cult game.
    Not to mention both the look and hazard potential (like destructible elements and X viruses) would constitute a great breath of fresh air for a series which mostly consisted of lava-themed places stage-wise.


    Aurum Islands - Kid Icarus: Uprising

    [​IMG]

    I know it would be the third time Uprising would be repped stage-wise, but I don't really care, this location has lots of potential to be a cool stage.


    Sylvalum - Xenoblade Chronicles X

    [​IMG]

    Rather than "lol all Mira Delfino-style", I would just want this place from Xeno X, as it easily has one of the most unique aesthetics in gaming.
    It would be also interesting to see a certain gigantic boss from the original game, which appeared there, appearing as an hazard as well.


    Excitebike Arena - Excitebike

    [​IMG]

    After Wrecking Crew, Pilotwings and such, it's time for another classic retro title which can hardly have playable representation to shine.
