Stage: Castle Crimea


Name: Castle Crimea

Universe: Fire Emblem

Debut: Super Smash Bros. 4

Obstacle Level: 2 (out of 5)

Type: Stationary

Availability: Starter

Castle Crimea is the Fire Emblem stage representative and a major home stage for the Fire Emblem characters. It does not appear in any of the Fire Emblem games but it was designed to emulate the feel of Fire Emblem.


Appearance

The stage is fought upon a castle roof much like Castle Siege. However, it appears to be the roof of the gate of the castle. The background overlooks the battlefield as two military factions fight against each other. Soldiers, archers, horsemen, and generals can be fighting side by side against each other. It is truly a war zone. However, above it all fights the brawlers but whose side they are on, none know. In the background trebuchets “Pachyderms” fling flaming shots into the fortifications. On either side of the gate are two towers that act much like in Shadow Moses Island. That cannot be destroyed.

After a minute and a half, the gate is toppled over and the players fall to the ground level where they must fight over the rubble that used to be the gate. In the back ground, the fight continues as before but the right is all around the brawlers. The ground is uneven and strewn with rubble and stone. Occasionally, a Pachyderm will fling another flaming tar boulder into the walls which will crash onto the stage. It does 20% Fire damage and explodes with high knock back. Look for falling shadows to avoid the boulders.

The gate is not fixed and players will fight in the ruined courtyard until the match is over.


Hazards and Movement

This stage is pretty plain and simple with the only hazard being the toppling of the gate and the flaming tar boulders that crash onto the stage every so often. Their is no moving platforms or changing background in the second part. However, players can walk-off the stage since their are no edges.

My Thoughts

I had a really hard time creating a Fire Emblem stage since the series doesn”t really have much in the way of descriptive locations so I decided to make a stage much like in Brawl that captures Fire Emblem in one stage. I originally made a stage that had several phases but I decided that was way to much like Castle Siege so I opted for one that is somewhat similar but different in terms of game play and movements. I wasn’t looking forward to making this stage at first but, no its all said and done, I am starting to like it more!


Chances of Being in SSB4

?% – I really have no idea what Fire Emblem stage will appear in SSB4. As mentioned before, Castle Siege does not represent any particular game in the series but as a whole. I am not sure if we will see a stage based off a particular location in the games or a stage that represents the series as a whole again.
