Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Stage Builder Revealed so Sneakily You Probably Missed It

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Stage Builder Revealed so Sneakily You Probably Missed It

This is what happens when Bowser takes over.

It looks like we don't need a new Nintendo Direct to get juicy Nintendo Switch game news. A trailer released yesterday has revealed that a Stage Builder feature may well be coming to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. While you might assume this wasn't meant to be revealed, it's unlikely the trailer went through multiple levels of approval with the 'leak' slipping through.

Below, you can see the 'Nintendo Switch my Way' trailer, which highlighted Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In the very first second of the trailer, when the child goes to pick up the controller from in front of the TV, you can briefly see the blurry "Stage Builder" text as an option on the screen.

Of course, credit to ResetEra for spotting the text on the screen in the trailer, which is incredibly easy to miss. At the time of writing, the feature hasn't been confirmed or commented on in any way by Nintendo.

Of course, this wouldn't be the only new addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the horizon. Joker from Persona 5 is set to release for the fighting game at some point in April, and it's entirely possible that both Joker and the new Stage Builder feature could arrive in the game together, in a big new update.

If the Stage Builder feature is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, what stages would you hope to create? Something without lava would be preferable, thank you very much.
