Masahiro Sakurai, director of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, has revealed new details on the stages of Super Smash Bros. 4 and how some will feature secrets based on characters used by the player. According to a report by Mii Gamer from Jan. 24, the Spirit Track stage found in Super Smash Bros. 4 on Nintendo 3DS will change while Toon Link is being used by a player or computer opponent.
Detailed on a post on Miiverse, Sakurai went into detail on how the stages found in Super Smash Bros. 4 will change depending on the characters being used at the time. Showcased in a newly released screenshot, Sakurai makes note that Alfonzo, from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, will serve as train conductor when Toon Link joins the battle.
If Toon Link isn’t being used by a player or the computer AI, Link will resume his job of controlling the train. Find Sakurai’s full comment below:
When Toon Link joins the battle, Alfonzo is in charge of the train. Alfonzo: "Leave it to me!"
Though this is the only example given at this time of a stage switching characters based on who is used in battle, similar changes could occur on an Animal Crossing or Super Mario Galaxy while the Villager and Rosalina are used.
Super Smash Bros. 4 is expected to release in 2014 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
