Animal Crossing Stage Revealed for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed a brand new Animal Crossing stage that will feature exclusively in the 3DS version of the game. The stage is modeled after Tortimer Island, first seen in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and according to Sakurai a “different island layout” will be displayed each time the stage is selected.

This announcement supports Sakurai’s previous statement that the Wii U and 3DS versions of the upcoming Smash Bros. game will feature stages and support trophies from console and handheld titles respectively. No release date had been given as of yet, but Nintendo has repeatedly confirmed both versions of the game will arrive sometime in 2014.
