Super Smash Bros. Wii U gets Super Mario Galaxy-inspired stage

A new screenshot on the Super Smash Bros. website has revealed that a stage inspired by Super Mario Galaxy will appear in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U. The stage will feature gravity-based gameplay according to a post from Game Director Masahiro Sakurai on the game's Miiverse.

"The pull of gravity emanates from the center of the planet, so this will require using brand-new tactics," Sakurai wrote. Since the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game have different stages - and thus, no cross-platform play - it's unclear if the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will also get the Galaxy treatment in any way.
