The burning question of 2018: will Waluigi be in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? It looks unlikely, but there’s still hope.
Game Director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that there are still “a few” new unannounced fighters to reveal before launch, but unfortunately the director doesn’t provide any details on who said characters could be or when we will hear about them precisely.
“A few” seems to imply a half-dozen max, which means increasing odds that Nintendo will continue to ignore the considerable, half-serious, half-trolling part of its fanbase that wants to desperately see Waluigi in the platform fighter.
Some other characters that would be neat to see would be the DOOM Slayer, Noctis from Final Fantasy, Captain Toad, Rex from Xenoblade Chronicles, and perhaps the Snorkel Ops skin from Fortnite. Or maybe Rust Lord? Or maybe a Waluigi skin in Fortnite?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is in development exclusively for Nintendo Switch, and is poised to release on December 7. For more news and media on the game, click here. For more information about the title via Nintendo itself, keep scrolling.
And as always, hit that comment section like your life depends on it. Who would you want to see Nintendo add to the roster with the few remaining slots? Will it add Waluigi? Or does Nintendo have no soul?
