Everyday Sakurai drops a new screenshot for Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. These screenshots usually show off new stages, assist characters, fun moments between characters, and plain old trophies.
Today, we will be getting a new character reveal which is rumored to be Shulk from Xenoblade. So one would assume that today’s screenshot would have something to do with that character, however it had something to do with another character that seems way out of left field.
Rayman is included in the game, as a trophy. A character that many would have wanted playable, is being left as a trophy. This means that Nintendo went out of their way to get the character in (Rayman is owned by third party Ubisoft), but didn’t use him as a fighter.
This is a pretty odd decision, as the character surely has tons of potential in the arena. Hopefully we’ll be pleasantly surprised soon. You can see the screenshot of Rayman’s trophy below.
