Retro levels we want in Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U

Nintendo revealed a Balloon Fight level for Smash Bros. 3DS, so we started thinking... if that game is big enough to get a level, what else is? That's the  focus of this week's Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS Weekly! Take a watch. 

Super Smash Bros. Wii U Weekly is GamesRadar's weekly Super Smash Bros. Wii U show. Yeah, we bet you figured that out already. Come back every Wednesday for the latest news, analysis, and speculation about the upcoming brawler.

    Well, BalloonFight wasn't chosen because it was a 'big enough' game, it was chosen as a novelty or throwback. AFter all, as small as BalloonFight may be, it's still more significant than Electroplankton or PictoChat ever were.

    I love watching Henry try to figure out what to do with his hands in these videos.

    Hollander.... you forgot to post the video for last week! Thankfully the screenshot from last week tipped me off that I hadn't seen it, otherwise I would've missed that horrible pokerap that was god awful hilarious. Toon Links Only + Balloon Battle + Stamina Mode = Tower Fall on 3DS Hmmm retro levels... a Mario Paint level would be the best possible one to me. It would be similar to the Pictochat level from Brawl where things could be drawn in and become part of the level, but also it should randomly switch to the music part and have the music notes scroll across the screen about one jump height over the floor of the level. If you get hit up or jump to high you'll get smacked by the scrolling music notes. Episode Ideas: I have two. The first is go through the comments and just explore a few quick ideas that people have come up with that you guys think could be cool additions. Things that wouldn't merit their own episode, but you still think are worth mentioning and exploring for a moment. My other idea... is why there needs to be a Golden Sun character, specifically Isaac from the original two or his son from the DS sequel, in new smash. It's a Nintendo exclusive RPG that was on the GBA and DS, and there was even an Isaac assist trophy in Brawl so there likely isn't any legal reasons why they couldn't. His main attacks would be sword and melee based, they have psynergy which is a wide range of psychic abilities that are combination of telekinesis and magic for special moves, there are also djinn creatures that could be used for attacks, and the awesome summons from the game means there're plenty of options for a great final smash. My most wanted franchise to be added to smash, and it makes way more sense practically than Ridley at least. Ok, one more alternative: why a Wonderful 101 character would make a ton of sense. Wii U exclusive game, Nintendo is helping Platinum a lot, it's cartoony but actiony, it's very japanese, and his move set would be extremely easy to come up with. Nintendo let Platinum put Madworld on the Wii and are publishing Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U. Clearly the two companies get along pretty well.

    What modes you want back? Also what'll you add to previous recurrent single player modes?

    In reality, I've rarely been fond of retro stages. They're always way too chaotic for me to truly enjoy. Of all of them, I think my favorite is Melee's Flat Zone. but even still the stage is very small.

    ... I don't really know, how about an Excitebike stage.

    Im all for Retro stages, i liked 75M of the DK arcade, that was out of left field. Doctor Mario or maybe even Tetris would be awesome.

    They could make an nes remix stage.
