The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS details will keep coming from Nintendo ahead of the staggered release of both versions, and today is no exception. The title will be out this summer on 3DS and most likely this winter on Wii U, though it seems like we'll have to wait until this month's E3 conference for a specific date.

Aside from the recent reveal of Ike the last major character details came from a Nintendo Direct video, and it's unlikely we'll see anything that significant again before E3. What we will keep getting are daily updates from Nintendo via the game's official site, which usually consist of a new picture accompanied by a description.

Today series director Masahiro Sakurai, who chooses what to post each day, has revealed a new Super Mario inspired stage for the Wii version of the title. You can see the new stage above, officially called Mushroom Kingdom U and it's meant to "bring to life the worlds" of New Super Mario Bros. U.

He also included a bonus image, below, that shows how the stage will transform and alter the playing field for players. Mushroom Kingdom U will also be one of the stages playable at the live E3 tournament.

"When Kamek casts a spell, the stage transforms drastically! That said, this is not what you would call a moving stage...By the way, this stage will be playable in the demo version of the game for E3, a game expo that starts on June 10 in Los Angeles."

Keep checking back for more Smash Bros. news ahead of E3, which will hopefully include an early specific release date announcement.
