Frigate Orpheon in Brawl

Frigate Orpheon in Brawl

The Frigate Orpheon is a new stage in Super Smash Bros Brawl.

Taken from the legendary Metroid Prime on GameCube, it's the first ship that Samus infiltrates.

In the background the Parasite Queen is in clear view for all. You'll also experience some power outages, leaving you in relative darkness. When a siren sounds, the whole stage will rotate 180 degrees (vertically).


Aw let me out, I'll be good this time.


Anyone got coins for the meter?


Well this is cosy. Maybe we shouldn't fight so much.


I didn't sign up for this.


Tell my wife Hello.

There's also a tune from Mother called Porky's Theme.

Wait, is this an actual good update? It can't be, but it is! The stage idea is kind of similar to the other Metroid Stage in Melee with Kraid in it (the one where the stage rotates). I wonder what they meant by jump when the alert rings (either that alerts when the stage turns or Mother Brain comes out to play).

That sounds strikingly similar to "Frere Jacques". Are we here to brawl or sing nursery rhymes?

Maybe this is Ridley's stage.

Yet another half-assed update from the big man. *Sigh* Still waiting for that Shiek update.

"Tell my wife hello", that's from futurama. Nice screens, looking good.

I remember the termite queen. I didn't get too far in the game, however.

Wow this is actually really good. Not only is this stage, like really cool, but it means that the bridge of eldin isn't the only Zelda stage. Don't get me wrong I think it's really cool, but I see some really good twilight princess stage design opportunities open.

It seems DeeDeeDee and Ice Climbers were the last characters and Sonic is a character with no stage. Or it could just be me.

Great! I loved this place in MP. I really didn't think this was a stage though.

Great stage, kind of a creepy song.

"My WIFE". Even though it's a parasite QUEEN. Anyways, this stage is interesting but seriously, the parasite queen fight? It really makes me wonder why there isn't a stage set in Mother Brain's lair.

Oh, and I can't say I like the music much, it's REALLY weird for a march, although it starts sounding a lot better at the end of the clip. Don't like the monophony though, especially in comparison to all the other beautiful polyphonic songs.

Whoops, sorry, made a mistake in my last post, meant Parasite Queen not Mother Brain.

I love the stage. I just beat Metroid Prime over the weekend and loved it. This is going to be pretty intense with the whole power going out and it turning 180 degrees. If Ridley is in, the game will be perfect. As for the song, I actually like it and I don't understand why everyone is criticizing it. It sounds very dramatic and perfect for New Pork City stage.

Finally, a good Metroid stage.

Metroid Prime. Good times.

I wonder if when it turns, it does it real fast because if it does turn and it's slow, you would have to keep jumping until the next thing comes or else you'll fall.

I know exactly what Master Foot means. A souped up version of Frere Jaques, what next Nintendo? A rap version of "Mary had a Little Lamb" supposedly originating from the Kirby series?

That's a little rude DKX900. Nintendo is doing their best with these updates. Its probley hell back in Japan, since their release date is January 30th.

Music for this Stage: "Vs. Ridley", "Opening/ Menu (Metroid Prime)", "Sector 1", "Vs. Meta Ridley".

The alarm means the stage is about to flip (or rotate, whichever you prefer). The Parasite Queen stays in the background (thankfully).

Cosy. Is Wii's World in the UK?

Here's the 411 for this stage. When you hear the siren, that means the stage is about to flip. So you don't get caught under the stage with no way back you have to jump when you hear the siren. And Gina Beets, it flips fast. And one more thing, Frogman, don't get excited about Ridley being playable, he is a boss in the adventure mode.

You have to be careful on this stage because when the stage flips, you could get stuck underneath. You can probably guess what happens, elevator going down.
