Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai took to Miiverse today in order to post his pic of the day featuring a screen shot from the 3DS iteration of franchise. In today's image, we learn that Rainbow Road, from the Mario Kart series, is the newest revealed stage set to be in Super Smash Bros. 3DS.


Sakurai left a brief note under the screen shot saying that Rainbow Road will be a "cruise-type" stage. Although he did not specify what that means exactly, it is more than likely that this arena will be much like the Rainbow Cruise or Poke Floats stages in Melee. These stages move the players through the a backdrop, while the platforms you fight on change.

Check out the image of Rainbow Road, and Sakurai's message below

Pic of the day. Happy Holidays! Here's a new 3DS stage--Rainbow Road! It can't be explained in one picture, but it's going to be a cruise-type stage.

Additionally, we have a few other "pics of the day" showcasing the Wii U version of Smash. As you can see in the Rosalina image below, her height far exceeds that of Mario and Peach. Sakurai mentioned that this new fighter, although very tall, "boasts an anti-gravity" effect and is very light. Perhaps Rosalina will have a jump that floats a bit more than the traditional characters; we'll have to wait and see.
