Fans of Smash were elated when Nintendo revealed that Super Smash Bros. For Wii U will feature eight player multiplayer, which is a significant upgrade over series standard four player.
Today on Miiverse, Sakurai has shown the difference between Battlefield and Big Battlefield, which is a larger version that accommodates 8 players well.
Battlefield may not be the perfect stage to host an 8 player session of Super Smash Bros., as shown in the screenshot above. It can ( and most likely will) be too chaotic and perhaps you will lose sight of your own fighter among the carnage.
Thankfully, to remedy this, Sakurai has included extra large stages made especially for 8 player smash. One such stage is Big Battlefield, which is a larger version of Battlefield with twice the number of platforms. You can check out the stage below.
“And here’s a stage prepared for a large number of fighters, Big Battlefield!! Fighters can spread out, so it should be easier battling on a stage like this,”Sakurai wrote on Miiverse.
