Great Plateau Tower
Great Plateau Tower (始まりの塔, Tower of the Beginning) is an upcoming stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The stage is completely flat with a medium sized structure above the middle of the floor acting as a ceiling. The structure is destructible through various methods, such as damaging it normally or having an opponent collide against it when knocked back. The more knockback an opponent receives, the more damage it does to the structure itself. When destroyed, it gets replaced with a soft platform until it is eventually automatically rebuilt. Occasionally, the Old Man paraglides onto the tower, stays for some time, and then paraglides away from the tower. He can also occasionally be seen gliding in the background behind the tower. He does not affect the battle.
This stage is based on the Great Plateau Tower from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is the first Sheikah Tower Link climbs and activates. Upon being activated, other Sheikah Towers begin to rise throughout Hyrule and Ancient Shrines activate. He also receives a detailed map of the Great Plateau region. Other Sheikah Towers also allow Link to have a map of the region in which the tower is located.
In the beginning of Breath of the Wild, the first person Link encounters after emerging from the Shrine of Resurrection is an Old Man who helps Link begin his journey by giving him items and tips about using the Sheikah Slate. After Link completes four Ancient Shrines, the Old Man reveals to him his true identity as the former king of Hyrule, King Rhoam. He tells Link the events leading up to him being in the Shrine of Resurrection, and gives him his paraglider to aid him on his journey to save Princess Zelda and Hyrule.
