Sakurai on Classic Smash Bros. Stage Selections on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

In a journal in Game Informer magazine, Super Smash Bros. producer Masahiro Sakurai discussed classic stages.

The latest set of games, available on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, contain a selection of new arenas and much-loved classics to battle upon. From the fan-favourite "Temple" to "Onett Town", there are numerous stages from past entries that made the cut - but why?

Sakurai noted how it would be "impossible to create completely original world settings for each one," noting how it was necessity to port past arenas, made possible on a "variety of balance decisions."

Some of these factors included how popular a past stage is, if it works on the Nintendo 3DS screen, plus if two stages in a franchise are both ports on 3DS and Wii U.

What do you think of the stages that made the roster? Would you have chosen differently?

I'm actually a little upset that stages such as Hyrule Castle, Mushroom Kingdom 2 and Pokemon levels from the N64 version haven't shown up yet.

Same here.

Chance favors the prepared mind.

I was a little disappointed in the choices they made in porting stages for this one. Having Temple, Corneria and Jungle Japes back for the third game in a row was pretty disappointing.
