It Appears Ridley Will Not Be A Playable Character In The Next Super Smash Bros
During the recent Smash Bros Nintendo Direct – Sakurai went into detail about Boss Character appearing in certain stages. In the direct – the Yellow Devil was detailed extensively as a Boss Character for the Mega Man stage. However, Sakurai did hint that there will be more Boss Characters – showing the shadow of what it is most likely Ridley – hovering over Pyrosphere (at 7.19 timestamp of the Nintendo Direct).
Ridley is perhaps one of the most requested Nintendo Icon that fans demand to be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. However, with the certain confirmation that Ridley will be a boss character that will periodically appear in Pyrosphere – it is likely Ridley will be missing out on a spot in the famous roster of Super Smash Bros. I for one will be disappointed – but I was almost expecting this – to be honest. I suppose we will have to wait until the next installments.
