Today on Miiverse, director of Smash Bros, Masahiro Sakurai, officially revealed the name of the Star Fox stage in Super Smash Bros. For Wii U. The stage is called the Orbital Gates and will reenact the epic armada battles that the series is known for.
“This is the Orbital Gate stage. This is a Wii U version-exclusive stage reenacting Team Star Fox’s defense of the Orbital Gate from an Aparoid missile attack,” Sakurai wrote on Miiverse.
Orbital Gates will be a visual spectacular and will be an absolute joy to play largely thanks to the eye candy that takes place before your eyes. During the battle – missiles will be launched towards the Orbital Gate. Of course, like any hi-tech spacecraft the force field shields will protect the Orbital Gates. And of course, the Star Fox team will save the day by eventually shooting down the missiles.
“Missiles are launched towards the Orbital Gate! The force field shields the machinery for a while, and the missiles eventually get shot down by team Star Fox. Overall, this stage feels like a ride. It’s pretty hectic, so hold on tight!”
“The Arwings are passing through the gate! And the fighters hop on for a free ride!!”
While we bask in the glory of these screenshots, let’s not forget Super Smash Bros. For 3DS is set to release on October 3/4 in North America, Europe and Australia respectively. On the other hand, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U is scheduled to be release during the holiday season.
