Skyloft is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, first revealed in the Nintendo Direct of E3 2013. It returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The stage is set in the Skyloft area of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Similar to the Delfino Plaza stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, characters will be transported around the large Skyloft area by a set of moving platforms. The assumed soft platforms have coloured triangles on their sides, while the main platform features strips of yellow on the side. Two layouts for these platforms have been seen so far. One features two angled platforms on the side, with a level platform between them. The other is much less conventional, with four platforms in various places.
Several different areas of Skyloft have been shown so far. One is a grounded area in front of the bazaar. Others include the bridge over the stream, and in front of the Statue of the Goddess. One part of the stage involves the player fighting on the windmill that is topped by a bird's nest. This area has two other platforms to the right of it that were not present in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Battles can also occur in front of the bench near another windmill that allowed players to overlook the whole of Skyloft, the staircase leading to the Knight Academy, a patch of land in front of the lake, the land in front of Batreaux's house, and a small floating island. Finally, the Light Tower is a section of the stage, which consists of one platform above a solid platform, which functions as an aerial stage. Loftwings and Beedle's Air Shop are also shown to fly around the stage.

Skyloft is faithful to its appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, with the only known differences being the addition of two platforms near the windmill. Specifically, the Skyloft stage is in the state that Skyloft was in throughout the middle of the game, as the colourful beacons were not present at the start of Skyward Sword, nor was the Light Tower open, and the Statue of the Goddess broke away at the end of the game. The touring set of platforms appear to be based on structures from Lanayru Desert's past.
