Every Stage NOT Returning in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

One of the coolest aspects of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announcement was the sheer amount of content returning from the past four entries in the series. Not including any brand new stages, Ultimate already features a total of 84 returning stages. It’s an incredible amount, but there is a surprising 43 stages that are not returning and we’re here to catalog each and every one.

Of course, any of these stages can be announced to return at any time and we’re giving out a quick rating judging how likely we think a particular stage is to return. Let’s start with the classics!

N64 Stages

Five stages from the original Super Smash Bros. have not yet been seen in Ultimate.

Kongo Jungle

If it wasn’t for Kongo Jungle appearing in Smash for Wii U, the chances for this stage would have been lower. It’s already been ported over to a newer engine, no reason for this one to miss out!

Will this stage return? Very Likely.

Peach’s Castle

Like Kongo Jungle before it, Peach’s Castle was a stage that appeared in Smash for Wii U. It’s fun, it’s different, and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t return!

Will this stage return? Very Likely.

Mushroom Kingdom

Although it has a different layout, a Mushroom Kingdom stage was also made for Melee. While that version hasn’t been confirmed for Ultimate either, we’re betting that both have a chance to appear as both play a little differently despite their visual similarities. We’re putting our money on the Melee version if there can only be one!

Will this stage return? Likely.

Planet Zebes

Most N64 stages have seen a return in at least one of the newer games, but Planet Zebes has sadly been left out with each new game. Unfortunately, Brinstar from Melee is essentially an upgraded Planet Zebes, so we expect the newer version to appear instead of both.

Will this stage return? Not Likely.

Sector Z

Once again, another stage that is just too similar to a stage made in Melee. Sector Z, say hello to Corneria.

Will this stage return? Not Likely.
