With Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS set for an imminent arrival, Game Designer Masahiro Sakurai is starting to shift attention towards to the Wii U version that still awaits a release date.

Sakurai-san's latest Miiverse Pic of the Day continues recent form in revealing another new stage for the Wii U version of the game, this time drawing from the GameCube title Star Fox: Assault; we're sure it'll look pretty stunning in the HD version of the game. You can see the posts below.

Pic of the day. This is the Orbital Gate stage. This is a Wii U version-exclusive stage reenacting Team Star Fox's defense of the Orbital Gate from an Aparoid missile attack.

Star Fox1

Missiles are launched towards the Orbital Gate! The force field shields the machinery for a while, and the missiles eventually get shot down by team Star Fox. Overall, this stage feels like a ride. It's pretty hectic, so hold on tight!

The Arwings are passing through the gate! And the fighters hop on for a free ride!!

This looks like a particularly exciting evolving stage, and will surely give Star Fox fans plenty of buzz during battles. Let us know what you think of this one in the comments below.
