Super Smash Bros Ultimate is already a jam-packed affair, with over 70 characters to play with, hundreds of songs to fight to, and a plethora of modes, new and old. It’s surprising then, that Nintendo appears to be adding another mode into the mix, a stage builder. A level builder is of course not a new feature for the series, as it also featured in Super Smash Bros Brawl and Wii U. It wasn’t included in Super Smash Bros Ultimate at launch however, and has been at the top of many fans’ wishlists ever since. To help keep you in the loop, we’ve put together this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Stage Builder Guide. We’ll go through what we know so far about the new level creator mode, and keep adding info as we get it.

The trailer embedded above is a recent video released by Nintendo. The point of it is to emphasize the different playstyles that the Switch emboldens, using Super Smash Bros Ultimate as an example. If you look during the first few seconds of the video, one of the kids grabs a controller from next to the TV. On the TV is the Super Smash Bros Ultimate start menu, though it’s a little different to the one that you’ll see when loading up the game at the moment. A new mode can clearly be seen, and it’s the stage builder that fans have been hoping for. We’ve included a still of the trailer below, so you can see the leak for yourself.
