Smash Bros screenshot shows Kid Icarus Stage

A new screenshot for Nintendo's upcoming entry in the Smash Bros series has been released, showing one of the stages.

The image of a Kid Icarus themed stage was posted on the game's Miiverse by series creator and director Masahiro Sakurai along with a message: "You can find this statue of the Goddess of Light in one of the stages. She's watching over the arena."

Nintendo recently also revealed that King Dedede will be returning as a character.

Other confirmed characters include Mega Man, Animal Crossing's Villager and the Wii Fit Trainer, as well as Rosalina and Luma from Super Mario Galaxy.

Nintendo has also offered an update on gameplay changes it is making, stating that the development team is rethinking edge-hanging, a high-level strategy expert players could use to make battles a little bit harder for their opponents.

"There are many changes being made to attack and defence options for grabbing edges," said Sakurai.

The game has not yet been given release dates, though they are expected to launch in 2014.
