Like with Brawl, Sakurai will be providing daily updates on the development progress of Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS through Miiverse.

Today, Sakurai confirmed that Rayman will make an appearance in Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS. Rayman is not a playable character, but rather a trophy. Sakurai asked Ubisoft for a Rayman model, and luckily Ubisoft was kind enough to provide a 3D model of him, instead of a 2D one. I was hoping he would make an appearance in Super Smash Bros in some capacity, and I am glad that he is at least a trophy.

Pic of the day. In order to make Rayman’s trophy, we asked Ubisoft to share their references. We were expecting to receive 2D drawing references for Rayman, but to our surprise, they sent us data of a brand new 3D model that they rendered for this game!! And that was how this trophy was created. It takes a lot of work creating each model, so it’s wonderful that the creators contributed their own efforts!!

    Now this was very surprising, but I do remember playing original Rayman on PS1, which is VERY challenging, but it also has some of the most beautiful music ever composed for a video game.

      Would you have liked rayman to be a playable character? I was kinda hoping he would be :(

      • Juhis815

        Well, I would rarely use Rayman as a playable character, so it’s not a huge loss for me.

          Are you any good? You gotta play with me! I consider myself to be above average :)

            I use Kirby just because he’s jumping abilities are top-notch, but there’s also the matter of timezone, because I come from Finland, so it would require hefty planning to ensure we can do the 1-on-1 match.

    Nice! Rayman would be a great addition to Super Smash Bros. Many great memories!

      I am still holding onto hope that he may be included! Come on Sakurai
