Super Smash Bros. Ultimate May Not Have All Past Stages
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out December 7
  • It's exclusive to the Nintendo Switch
  • Might not have every stage from franchise history

At Nintendo's E3 2018 presentation, one of the biggest reveals was that the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – releasing December 7, 2018 on the Nintendo Switch – would include every character from the Super Smash Bros. History, including those that were offered through downloadable content (DLC) in the past, alongside a couple of new ones in the Inklings from Splatoon and Ridely from the Metroid series.

But that's not the same for stages, the arenas you fight on. A recent press demo, covered by Japanese video game magazine Famitsu and translated by gaming website Source Gaming, revealed that not every stage from the Super Smash Bros. history will make it to Ultimate, unlike the characters. "Not all past stages are going to be in the game but a whole lot of them will," the latter tweeted on Tuesday.

In a follow-up tweet, Source Gaming did stress that "that the questions and answers were likely edited by Famitsu for brevity and translated from English to Japanese, which introduces the potential for misunderstandings". That means it's best to take this with a slight pinch of salt until we get a proper look at the game. If you can read Japanese or know someone who does, feel free to read through the Famitsu interview by yourself and share your interpretation in the comments section below.

Here's the official description for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:

Legendary game worlds and fighters collide in the ultimate showdown—a new entry in the Super Smash Bros. series for the Nintendo Switch system! New fighters, like Inkling from the Splatoon series and Ridley from the Metroid series, make their Super Smash Bros. series debut alongside every Super Smash Bros. fighter in the series…EVER! Faster combat, new items, new attacks, new defensive options, and more will keep the battle raging whether you’re at home or on the go.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out December 7, 2018.
