Super Smash Bros 4 to Feature a Pokemon X and Y Themed Stage

The new Super Smash Bros 4 3DS version will feature a Lumiose City stage from Pokemon X and Y.

The game's director Masahiro Sakurai posted up an image featuring the new level on his Miiverse earlier today.

"The Prism Tower rises about Lumiose City. Up until a few seconds ago, the fighters were brawling on top of that tower. No, really," said Sakurai in his Miiverse post.

New pics from both the Wii U and 3DS versions are posted by the game's director Masahiro Sakurai almost every day in Nintendo's Miiverse. Another recent pic reveals King Dedede from the Kirby universe unleashing an attack that could end up being the most powerful one in the game.

"So far, which attack can blast away enemies most dynamically … Is it King Dedede's fully charged Jet Hammer? Nah, it can't beat [Little Mac's] K.O. uppercut," said Sakurai while describing the move.

Another recent image pointed to combo finishers in the Wii U version of the game as it features Star Fox using what appears to be a finishing kick on Samus. Along with the picture, Sakurai stated that every character will get a combo finisher treatment and not just select ones like in past iterations.

"Now consecutive standard attacks will always transition into a finishing move," said Sakurai with the picture.

The new Super Smash Bros games were first announced at E3 in 2011. There is no word on an official release date, however, they are expected to launch before the end of this year. Both versions of the game will boast different trophies so players who purchase both will have some variety.

The Wii U version will be the fourth official installment in the series following in the footsteps of the original that launched for the Nintendo 64 in 1999.
