New photos give a look at some of the stages in the upcoming Super Smash Bros 4 game.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai shared the screenshots, showing the Gamer stage in the Wii U version and the PictoChat 2 stage in the 3DS version.

“Don’t let Mom find you while you’re duking it out!!” he said with a picture of the first stage.

“If Mom does spot you, she’ll scold you and blow you away!! …I’ve never seen a fighting action game as chaotic as this one,” he said with another picture.

For the PictoChat 2 stage, Sakurai noted that the developers have included the appearance of Pac-Man “as an element from Pac-Pix, which was released in 2005.”

“It was quite revolutionary,” he added.

“There are a lot of new elements in the PictoChat 2 stage. In this screenshot, it looks like there is depth to the stage…or like there isn’t. The illusory nature of the drawing is meant to challenge your perspective,” he said.

And Sakurai also shared some new details about alternate tracks for stages on the 3DS version.

He said they can be chosen by holding down the R Button while you select the stage–the brown drop shadow that frames the stage image when you hold down the R Button indicates the alternate track is active.

“For the Living Room stage, the alternate track is the vocal version of the default track. Songs with vocals aren’t the best match for battles, but the song was too good to leave out, so this is how we chose to include it,” he said.

“Also, For the Boxing Ring, if you select the stage while holding down the L Button, you can play on the Smash Bros. version of the stage. If you hold down the Y Button, you can choose to play on the Punch Out! version. These variations are usually selected at random, but this method lets you select them manually,” he added.
