Today’s new screenshot of Super Smash Bros. has revealed a brand new stage. The stage is Fire Emblem themed and is shown off by Ike and Marth. Here is what Sakurai had to say about it on Miiverse along with a second screenshot:

We’ve added a familiar setting from the Fire Emblem series, the Coliseum. In the original game, this place is filled with both hope and despair. There is machinery in the ground that activates variable platforms.

Gaijin Games is no more – in a name sense at least. Going forward, the studio will be known as “Choice Provisions”.

Choice Provisions explained the name change in a blog post, stating:

When Gaijin Games was founded in September of 2008, it was with the goal of creating the kinds of games we played in our youth. As it turns out, many of the games we grew up playing were developed outside of the US. This is what inspired us to brand ourselves as “gaijins.”

The name made sense, but it also carried somewhat of a negative connotation to it. No matter how you may feel about the word “gaijin” personally, I think it’s fair to say that some people out there view it as a negative term. Being the upbeat, positive folks we are, the last thing we wanted was for people to be offended by our name. We are but humble purveyors of video games, and the end goal of all the work we do is to make people happy.

Ergo, we’re changing our name to Choice Provisions.

Along with today’s news, Choice Provisions has officially confirmed Woah Dave! for 3DS. The title is due out this summer.

Natsume has revealed its final two Nintendo-related announcements for E3 2014. The publisher will be localizing A-Train: City Simulator for 3DS as well as Alphadia Genesis for Wii U.

Here’s an overview of both games:

Combining the best of both city simulation games and transportation simulation games, A-Train: City Simulator for 3DS is sure to be a hit with fans of both genres! As the newly promoted head of the local transportation agency, it’s your job to make sure that both the city and its transportation system run smoothly! From buses, trains, and subways, you’ll have to think about the best way to incorporate these into the city while avoiding possible bottlenecks and frustrated citizens!

Natsume is also pleased to reveal their first Wii U game, Alphadia Genesis! Boasting a rich, complex story starring Fray, a member of the local guild, and Corone, a knight. As their journey progresses and conflicting national interests come to the forefront, it becomes apparent that it may take more than a little work on both their parts if their relationship is to weather the foreboding storm on the horizon.

A-Train: City Simulator and Alphadia Genesis, along with Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, will be showcased at E3 2014.
