Masahiro Sakurai, director of the Super Smash Bros. series, has revealed a brand new Kid Icarus: Uprising themed stage for Super Smash Bros. 4 Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. According to a report by Official Nintendo Magazine from Jan. 29, the Wii U and 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. 4 will have a new stage based on Kid Icarus: Uprising, which will have Palutena watching over the arena.

Though there are rumors of Palutena being a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4, Sakurai has yet to confirm her as a playable character, but she will make an appearance as a statue in this newly shown stage. Based on the opening stage found in Kid Icarus Uprising, this new stage shows the Coliseum in the background with a Goddess of Light, Palutena statue in the foreground. You can read Sakurai’s description of the new stage below:

You can find this statue of the Goddess of Light in one of the stages. She's watching over the arena.

Masahiro Sakurai previously made mention of having handheld titles highlighted in the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. 4, meanwhile the Wii U edition would have home console games. With a Kid Icarus: Uprising stage present in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. 4, it has sparked some speculation as to whether an HD remake of Uprising could come to Wii U.

Of course, it could just be Sakurai making reference to his previous title.

Super Smash Bros. 4 is scheduled for a 2014 release on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
