Smashville (すま村, Smash Village) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate based on the Animal Crossing franchise. Players battle on a platform with a moving horizontal jump-through platform suspended above an Animal Crossing town while spectators watch on.
Smashville's only dynamic element is a floating soft platform that moves from side to side over the stage.
The stage is home to numerous background characters from the Animal Crossing series, and features a day-night cycle that runs according to the console's internal clock. On Saturday evenings from 8:00 PM to 12:00 AM, K.K. Slider will appear in the background performing a concert. Other background characters spectate the fight, reacting to KOs and visibly favoring one fighter or another.
Small, red balloons sometimes float overhead, carrying food items if they are enabled (even if the overall item frequency is set to "none"). The balloons can be popped with one hit. Moves that change once hitting a hurtbox will interact with the balloons, such as Bouncing Fish.
Ω forms and Battlefield form
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the moving platform, background characters, and balloons do not appear in the Ω form. Additionally, the stage is increased in length somewhat to match that of Final Destination.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Ω form and Battlefield form are similar to SSB4's Ω form; however, the main platform is resized and reshaped to match Final Destination and Battlefield, respectively. The three soft platforms of the Battlefield form are based on the soft platform of the normal form.
The following characters appear in the background of Smashville:
Each Animal Crossing game is mostly set in a small town. A typical town can be seen in the background of this stage and retains almost everything that is present in a town in the Animal Crossing series, such as trees, rocks, flowers, a river with bridges, and a waterfall along with various buildings:
Strangely, despite Tom Nook's store being one of the most important buildings in the Animal Crossing series, not one version is present in this stage. The background also contains elements that occasionally appear, such as a taxi driven by Kapp'n, a turtle that drops off the player in the town in the beginning of Wild World with his taxi; a flying saucer flown by Gulliver, a seagull astronaut; and Pete, a pelican mailman, flying accross the background.
In Animal Crossing, there are balloons that occasionally float over the town carrying a present. In order to get the present, the player must wait to see if the balloon get caughts in a tree. If the balloon does get caught in a tree, the player can shake the tree which makes the present fall down. In Wild World, the player can buy a slingshot to pop balloons in the air to make the present fall. This stage features balloons that can be popped when attacked, and, if items are enabled, they carry food.
In Animal Crossing, there is a dog named K.K. Slider who is a musician that appears at the train station every Saturday at 8:00 PM. If the player talks to K.K. Slider, the player can either request a song or ask him to play a random song. In this stage, if the player plays on this stage from 8:00 PM onwards on a Saturday, K.K. Slider can be seen and heard playing one of his songs. In the Animal Crossing games, K.K. Slider will only be performing until 9:00 PM, but in this stage plays until midnight. The songs that K.K. Slider plays on this stage are real songs that he plays in the Animal Crossing games.
In Brawl this stage is a starter in tournaments because of its simple layout and lack of stage hazards. It is one of the three Brawl stages legal in Japan; the others are Battlefield and Final Destination.
The 2017 recommended ruleset for SSB4 also lists this stage as a starter in tournaments, for the same reasons as in Brawl.
