In Sakurai's latest picture of the day, that he posts on the Super Smash Bros. Wii U Miiverse, he's unveiled another new map for the upcoming fighter. Today's unveil is a map from Metroid: Other M, the Pyrosphere stage. In addition to what we can see, Sakurai also mentions that an unnamed villain should be popping up in the background of the stage any moment now.
"Pic of the day. Out of the blue, here's a new stage--the Pyrosphere from Metroid: Other M! An enemy from Samus's past may appear at any second…"
I've got to admit, when it comes to bread crumb trail teasers, no one does it better than Nintendo with Super Smash Bros. releases. It could be any day, or every day, that a small bit of new that my in the grand scheme of things seem irrelevant, but still makes you smile. Metroid: Other M wasn't a particularly great game, but it's still iconic. Plus, there isn't a villain in that franchise who isn't 100% memorable.
Super Smash Bros. Wii U and its 3DS counterpart will be launching in 2014.
