I love me some music. I have challenged myself to learn all 34 on piano, let's see how that goes.

I wonder if those stairs to the right are solid? That would be interesting, differentiating the two sides and making for different recoveries on that side. I don't know how I feel about the lower middle section, that could just get annoying. I think the stage bosses will make this stage very interesting, as long as they aren't unavoidable like the Yellow Devil.

I'd love to hear you perform some of the songs on piano on a video or recording of some sort. Castlevania music is some of the best from the early days and really holds up today.

I might try and record it, but I don't have an audio interface for recording.

I'm really happy with all the Castlevania representation in this game!

This stage just made me realize how lame Sonic and pacman's stages are. Maze on 3ds is just fine, but the wii U stages + green hill zone leave something to be desired.

Couldn’t agree more. Cloud’s stage makes it the second best 3rd party stage in Smash Bros. history. Lol

I'm sad that Final Fantasy didn't get the same love with music selection for that stage. I guess a lot of it wouldn't fit in well with Midgar though. I'd love to see another FF character and outdoors fantasy style stage, but now I'm being greedy.

Why Sakurai decided to bring back Pac-Land instead of Pac-Maze for Ultimate I will never understand. Oh and as for underwhelming 3rd party stages you can throw Wily's Castle into that pot as well.

Yeah, PAC-LAND is one of my least favorite stages in the history of Smash. I know PAC-LAND had the feature where the ghosts would only be blue for all but 1 player in multiplayer or something like that, but they could have easily put "P1", "P2" etc... above them to show who would not be affected. :-/
