Tortimer Island stage revealed for Smash Bros. 3DS

Masahiro Sakurai, director of the upcoming 4th installments in the Super Smash Bros. franchise, has revealed a new stage for the 3DS version on Miiverse: Tortimer Island. For those of you who have played Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you’ll recognize the locale as the island resort where Tortimer (the old mayor from previous AC games) spends his retirement conducting tours and soaking up the sun. Sakurai himself has visited the tropical getaway “countless times to catch bugs.”

Sakurai’s pic of the day (shown above) gives a small idea of what surprises the stage may hold. What do you think about the latest reveal?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
