"This island looks familiar," teases director.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will include a stage based on the Pilotwings series, if we’re judging the game’s latest daily screenshot correctly.

The screenshot shows one of the maps from the Super Nintendo Pilotwings, tilted in a 3D-like perspective.

In an update on Wii U’s Smash Bros. Miiverse page, game director Masahiro Sakurai said, “This island looks familiar!”

Stay tuned.

    If Nintendo want to save the Wii U they simply need to give us a new Pilot wings. That’ll shift a few million consoles.

      The one they put on the 3DS didn’t exactly…soar

        I’m pretty sure it made it the success the 3DS is today. Without Pilotwings it’d be nothing.

    I have yet to play Pilotwings despit the fact that ive bought practically every Nintendo console since the NES in 1989.

      I’ve never played the original, but the 64 version had its moments. It was my first (and for quite some time, only) 64 title, so I spent an inordinate amount of time with it.

    Having a mode 7 pilotwings stage is them admitting that pilotwings should have been in SSB a long time ago.
