While there's a decent list of stages already confirmed for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, more are still being drip-fed to the public through Masahiro Sakurai's Pic of the Day posts. The latest entry introduces another popular — yet neglected — franchise as a battle arena.

This time we have the Great Fox from GameCube title Star Fox: Assault, continuing the run of the series as throwing up a stage in every Smash Bros. game to date. The original Super Smash Bros. had a Sector Z stage, Melee introduced a Lylat System: Corneria arena, while Brawl included the Melee stage in addition to Lylat Cruise; a snapshot of the Wii U stage is below.

Pic of the day. Here's the Great Fox from Star Fox: Assault. I wonder what missions it will conduct. It'll probably have fighters running around on top of it without the pilot's consent.

Star Fox Stage

As the Wii U and 3DS versions have unique stages, we're yet to see whether there'll be an equivalent on 3DS — it would perhaps be best suited to something based on Star Fox 64 3D, but we'll see soon enough.

Are you pleased to see another Star Fox stage in the latest entry on Wii U? Let us know in the comments below.
