Skyloft (スカイロフト, Skyloft) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, first revealed in the Nintendo Direct at E3 2013. The stage is set in the Skyloft area of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Similarly to Delfino Plaza, characters will be transported around the large Skyloft area by a set of moving platforms. The assumed soft platforms have colored triangles on their sides, while the main platform features strips of yellow on the side. The platform layout goes in the following order:
After that, the stage reverts to its Battlefield-like design and returns to the starting point, starting the stage's cycle anew.
Between each platform layout, the stage stops at several points of interests in a random order:
The underside of Skyloft can meteor smash fighters.
When hazards are turned off in Ultimate, the platforms never travel around the Skyloft area and instead, only uses the first layout listed above.
Ω forms and Battlefield form
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the Ω form uses the same base platform as the normal version; this time without soft platforms, featuring a temple-like design on its bottom. The platform will still tour around the stage, but will not stop at any places of interest. Players will also notice that the soft platforms on the Goddess statue are missing. Star KOs occur.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the main platform of the Ω form and Battlefield form is similar to SSB4's Ω form; however, it is resized and reshaped to match Final Destination and Battlefield, respectively. The three soft platforms of the Battlefield form resemble the ones in the normal form.
Skyloft is Link's homeland in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. In Super Smash Bros. 4, it is faithful to its appearance in the said game, with the only known differences being the addition of two platforms near the windmill. Specifically, the Skyloft stage is in the state that Skyloft was in throughout the middle of the game, as the colorful beacons were not present at the start of Skyward Sword, nor was the Light Tower open, and the Statue of the Goddess broke away at the end of the game. The touring set of platforms appear to be original designs.
