Remember back before Little Mac was announced for the next Smash Bros. game, when there was a boxing ring with the Smash logo on it? After Little Mac’s debut, most people assumed, after seeing the new Punch-Out! themed boxing stage, that the original had just been a placeholder and had since been replaced. However, in a recent Miiverse post, Sakurai revealed that there are in fact two versions of the stage: a blue ring featuring the Smash Bros. logo, and a purple ring featuring W.V.B.A. logos.

Sakurai did not, however, elaborate on how one can change between the two versions. It would seem that using Little Mac on the stage is not the answer, as he is not present in the screen containing the
Punch-Out! version (which can be viewed after the jump). It seems there will be an option to switch between the two versions at the stage selection screen, or perhaps the stage will randomly choose one of the two versions when selected.

What do you think about the two stage versions? Neat addition, or meaningless visual changes? Sound off in the comments!

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
