Smashville in Super Smash Flash 2.
|Appearance||Super Smash Flash 2|
Smashville (すま村) is a starter stage in Super Smash Flash 2. It is the only Animal Crossing-themed stage in the game and it is based on the Super Smash Bros. Brawl stage with the same name. It is a fairly simple stage, consisting of one long platform and one short moving platform above it, and it also features Animal Crossing characters cheering on the fighters in the background.
This stage is set up exactly in the way it was in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. There is one large platform in which the fighters can see Gracie's car and other Animal Crossing-related objects. A small moving platform passes over this larger one, sweeping back and forth over the main stage. Its layout is similar to Final Destination's, though the moving platform sets the two stages apart. Both in Super Smash Flash 2 and in Super Smash Bros. series, the background changes depending on the time of day, and also there are some climate changes, such as rain.
- The main music track is titled DJ K.K., a custom remix from Animal Crossing.
Smashville is one of the most popular competitive stages in the Super Smash Bros. series every time it appears; Brawl, Project M, Smash Wii U and SSF2. Its single-platform layout renders it a very neutral battleground, arguably more so than even Battlefield, in many match-ups. Characters that excel with the platform game, open-air game, ground game, and offstage game are all able to play to their fullest. Furthermore, unlike Battlefield, there are only two elevations to fight at rather than three due to the lack of an upper platform, discouraging camping. Smashville is always a guaranteed neutral stage due to these properties.
Animal Crossing is a real-life simulation game series in which the player moves into a town and lives life. There are many buildings in which the player can explore, including a town hall, a museum, and even their own customized house. The background for Smashville in Super Smash Flash 2 is based on Animal Crossing: Wild World for the Nintendo DS. It shows a small town during the morning or daytime.
- In an earlier version of Smashville, all the villagers were replaced with the shopkeeper Mabel. They were removed when the stage was revised.
