Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that players will be able to use the elasticity of the ropes in order to perform a high spring jump. The game director also disclosed that the same trick won’t work horizontally when trying to perform a lariat attack. You can check out Mario using the ropes on Mega Man and Zelda, as well as several other shots from “Super Smash Bros. 4,” in the slideshow to the left of this article. The details can be found below:

The ropes surrounding the ring. You can actually use the stretchiness of the ropes to do a spring jump. However, you can't pull on them to launch yourself sideways in a lariat attack though.

Masahiro Sakurai has not yet revealed what game influenced the boxing ring stage. Many fans believed that the level may be paying homage to the “Punch Out” series while others think that it could be taken from a certain boss fight that reoccurs in the “Kirby” franchise.

The game director is expected to complete the development of “Super Smash Bros. 4” sometime later this year. The Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS video game, which will be published by Nintendo, should be coming out for multiple regions in 2014.
