Masahiro Sakurai has announced a new stage for “Super Smash Bros. 4” on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. According to a report from Mii-Gamer on Dec. 24, the latest level appears to be based on the “Mario Kart” series.

The new stage takes place on a rainbow-colored platform in space. It resembles the infamous Rainbow Road race tracks from the “Mario Kart” titles. In the arcade racing games, these courses are the hardest to navigate through due to the high speed and no railings that prevent the car from falling off the ledge. You can check out a screen showing Rosalina and Samus fighting on the level, along with a few shots from “Super Smash Bros. 4,” in the slideshow to the left of this article. The comments from the game director can be seen below:

Here’s a new 3DS stage–Rainbow Road! It can’t be explained in one picture, but it’s going to be a cruise-type stage.

Masahiro Sakurai previously disclosed that the forthcoming title will include different stages on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The aforementioned image only shows off the handheld version, presumably suggesting that it won’t be available in the home console iteration.

Nintendo is planning to release “Mario Kart 8” in the spring season of 2014 while also launching “Super Smash Bros. 4” sometime next year. The new collaborative stage should help promote the two upcoming releases from the company. The previously-released “Super Smash Bros. Brawl” also featured a level based on “Mario Kart.”
