It’s a level, it’s a dungeon, it’s a kart track, it’s a game board, and now Bowser’s Castle has finally made its Smash debut as a stage!

As usual, the castle floor is filled with lava that’s too hot to touch. You can toss opponents in, but make sure not to fall in yourself!

Ow-ow-ow-ow-ow! HOT! Ow-ow-ow-ow-ow! HOT!

Of course, Bowser wouldn’t be content to put just one deathtrap in his castle. Thus, Thwomps hidden on the ceiling will periodically crash down onto the battlefield, crushing anything in their path – even the stage itself!

URGH! This tends to result in a KO. URGH! This tends to result in a KO.

After a Thwomp has fallen, you can stand on it and use it as a platform. But, as with everything else in Bowser’s Castle, do so at your own risk.

Better jump off soon! Better jump off soon!
