On top of a group of characters the Smash Brothers games have always had a select group of points in the game that remain the same with each entry. One such point is the ship from Star Fox which has appeared as a stage in the original Super Smash Brothers as well as Melee and also a returning stage in Brawl and today's picture of the day teases said stage returning for old and new fans to enjoy. The following message and the picture was passed along by Sakurai:
Pic of the day. Here's the Great Fox from Star Fox: Assault. I wonder what missions it will conduct. It'll probably have fighters running around on top of it without the pilot's consent.
The Great Fox is one of my favourite stages from Super Smash Brothers and if it does actually return I will be very happy, it has always been enjoyable to play on and the ships flying around have been quite fun to see and try to smack opponents into. Though I do see this as a likely returning stage even if it comes in a new form.
