The latest Super Smash Bros 4 pic of the day to be released by the game's director Masahiro Sakurai features the special gold fighter for the 3DS version.
Sakurai posted the pic up on the Miiverse earlier today with a short message explaining how to attain the gold fighter.
"If you collect 100 coins, you transform into a gold fighter! For a short period of time, your attack power will increase and you won't flinch when you receive attacks. This unique stage's name is Golden Plains and it's exclusive to the 3DS version," he said.
Sakurai also released a picture that revealed a level taken from New Super Mario Bros. 2.
"New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a game where you collect tons of coins. Thus, it's only natural that many coins will appear in this stage.. Wait, is this really Super Smash Bros?" He continued.
The new Smash Bros. games will launch for both the Wii U and 3DS later this year.
Nintendo confirmed to IGN last month that the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros will launch sometime in the summer this year. Wii U fans will have to wait until the winter to get their hands on this epic fighting title.
Sakurai discussed how multiplayer will work in the game with IGN. He stated that players can play online with friends and can also engage in a handful of different multiplayer modes. There will be two distinct forms for multiplayer including "For Fun" and "For Glory."
For Fun only records players wins, and pits opponents against each other in random stages that include all items. For Glory levels the playing field by removing items and setting every match on a Final Destination version of certain levels. Wins and Losses will be tracked in For Glory.
