One of the first new stages revealed for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the Boxing Ring is making a comeback in Smash Ultimate. Its two variants, each modeled for Smash Bros. itself and the Punch-Out!! series, are both back and ready to serve as a suitable stage for any one-on-one fights that require a little bit of presentation.

Their gimmicks, like the falling lights and walk-off sides, are both back, but more important is the return of the character titles that’ll frame the big screen in the background. Each of the new characters will have a title to add to the list, and certain ones have had theirs changed in the jump from Wii U to Switch. For example, Link’s branded a Champion of Hyrule rather than a Hero, fitting the Breath of the Wild basis this time around. Be on the lookout for new ones as more characters step into the ring!

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
