The Summit fears no man

The Summit fears no man

The Ice Climbers' stage in Super Smash Bros Brawl is called The Summit (of Icicle Mountain).

It starts off as a calm fight on a mountain top, but soon you're hurtling down the slope at breakneck speeds - ending up in the ocean.


Halloween gets everywhere these days.


Fat Dedede breaks the mountain.


There's something wrong with its brakes!


Great, now we're adrift.


Private Cooly McBear, reporting for duty.


We gonna need a bigger boat.

Look! It's Ice Climber Kirby! First new Kirby we saw was King Dedede and now we have Ice Climber. I wonder what Kirby would do if it absorbed Pokemon's Trainer Pokemon? I hope they put up all Kirby's Brawl forms when it is released (wonders how Zero Suit Samus Kirby and Snake Kirby would look).

They're leaving us with cliffhangers. I love that. Luckily, I know where that fish is from. Can you believe it, Balloon Fight.

I read that the fish in this stage is from Balloon Fight, an old NES game. Maybe a balloon fighter will be a new character.

What happens after the stage is sunk? Is there anything more besides that? Because if I'm playing a 15 minute match and the piece of ice falls in the first minute, I'm going to be a bit disappointed.

Someone get that bear a Coke! And Kirby with the Ice Climbers hat looks absolutely hilarious.

They should at least leave the Kirby hats a secret.

I didn't hate the ice stage in Melee but it wasn't my all time favorite. I love this stage, it looks beautiful. Super King that Coke joke was funny, I forgot all about those Coke Bear Christmas ads.

I can't wait to see all the kirby forms and this one is pretty neat too. Oh man I love the ice climbers.

Ah, the classic quote: "We're going to need a bigger boat". It never gets old.

Finally! Let Icicle Mountain rest in peace for eternity! I hated that stage. Then again, there's that new DK stage that's the same thing. This one looks much better. I like it lots.

Balloon fighter will probably be an assist trophy.

I love this stage. Which game is this stage from?

Awesome stage! Does Nintendo ever run out of great ideas?

Not the best stage yet, but definitely better than the Ice Climbers' last joke of a stage (Icicle Mountain) in Melee. It wasn't the scrolling that was bad, it was the randomness of the scrolling. It'd go up slowly, then speed up, then shift directions entirely and go quickly down. That was such a horrible stage. I'm glad I only played it like two times at most.

This is a far better stage than the icicle mountain, it's a great stage and for being in the water.

BrothaZ said:

Well this is better than their last stage. A lot better.

This level would be awesome if it has water physics. You could jump on one end to tip it down, and even flip the iceberg.

God damned greenhouse effect is effecting video games now?! What has the world become.

NIMIKQ said:

I think they proportion the time of the sinking with the length of the match (15 min match, it starts moving 5 minutes in?).

insultman911 said:

Yay, water! I can put water in the stage custom mode.

Epsilon said:

Wow, this looks WAY better than Icicle Mountain. As for keeping the Kirby hats secret, it's not really a big deal. Besides, it's not like Ice Climber Kirby is anything new.

Avatar

DragonFoxCoon said:

I agree with Master Foot. We should be surprised about the Kirby hats. Except for the ones we already know of, like the Ice Climber and Bowser abilities.

Diddy Kong Lover said:

Kirby woud look good as Sonic or Diddy Kong too. When will they add Dixie Kong? That stage is an improvement for Ice Climber stages.

Avatar

SupaYoshi88 said:

Wow! Yea thinking about it perhaps that fish in the stage is hinting something about a balloon fighter character. Who knows?

This stage is better than the Ice Climbers stage in Melee.

insultman911 said:

I wonder if in the game, you can actually swim. I like these adventure stages. They're really cool.

Avatar

insultman911 said:

You know what would be really cool? I know it would be cool to swim and all that, but what if the fish dunked the iceberg, split it in half and it sunk underwater. Then you could swim underwater? That'd be awesome.

Avatar

Ultigonio said:

@SupaYoshi: Nah. Just like its prerequisite, this Ice-Climber stage has one simple Balloon Fight reference. At Icicle Mountain, 'twas the alternate music.

Avatar

pichu fan said:

Anyway can you drown? Dedede is swimming, is it because he's a penguin? No fair.

Avatar

Peach is #1 said:

Balloon Fighter is stupid to have playable. He's more an assist trophy type.

Avatar

insultman911 said:

If my statement isn't true, yes, you'd probably fall underwater and lose a life. Dedede is not swimming. He's standing on something.

Avatar

SupaYoshi88 said:

When I said Balloon Fighter character I didn't mean playable, I just meant showing up in the game. He would make a better assist trophy.

I can't wait to see kirby's sonic hat.

GamingGuy84 said:

Sweet stage. Looks like everyone confirmed so far has a stage with their symbols on them except for Samus and Sonic. What kinds of stages would Sakurai have in plan for them? I have some guesses. For Sonic, his stage could be Green Hill Zone; that level was always fun in the old Sega games. For Samus, I think she should have a stage that looks like the cave where she defeated Metroid Prime's final form in Metroid Prime 1. It could have some Phazon pools to damage the players touching them. MP's core form could appear in the background every now and then and form new Phazon pools when the old ones dry out.

Aeth said:

GamingGuy84, Samus's Stage was playable in the demo at E For All. It was the classic Brinster stage (you know, with the rising acid). Sonic is either Green Hill or Marble Zone (many of the pieces in the "build-your-own-stage" looks similar to things that would be in the Marble Zone).

frogman said:

Actuallly Aeth, the Metroid stage is called Norfair although because of the similarities between the two, I got them mixed up as well. As for Ice Climber stage, it looks like one of the prettiest and most interesting stages announced. This is good compared to the awful stage they had last time.

Aeth said:

Music for this Stage: "Ice Climber", "Balloon Trip", "Shin Onigashima".

David said:

Brinstar (Rising Acid) is in Brawl too. Try not to get them confused.
