As the game features all previous playable characters, Villager has returned. Villager is nearly identical in appearance to his iteration in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, but features a more subdued color scheme and several animation changes. Villager received several gameplay changes including the ability to see pocketed items and the ability to pocket items using the net.
Furthermore, Isabelle has also been confirmed to appear as a playable character, after being an Assist Trophy in the previous game. Some of her moves are similar to the Villager's, but most of her moves are unique to her.
Smashville, Tortimer Island, and Town and City have all been confirmed to be returning. All stages are now able to be turned into Battlefield and Ω forms. These forms turn the stage's geometry into that of Battlefield and Final Destination respectively. A function that turns off stage hazards was also announced, but it has not yet been confirmed what changes will be made to the three Animal Crossing stages.
The beehive is confirmed to be returning from the previous installment. The fruit that grows on Tortimer Island and the wood chip produced from Villager's down special are also confirmed to be returning.
