Waluigi Doesn’t Get Promoted To The Roster In New Super Smash Bros.

Sorry, Waluigi fans. Luigi’s lanky rival will return to the upcoming Wii U and 3DS Super Smash Bros. games, but only as an assist trophy.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai posted a screenshot of Waluigi’s assist trophy move on the Miiverse. He confirms that the purple-clad miscreant will not be included in the main roster.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are on track for a 2014 release. For more, check out the reveals of Diddy Kong, the Mother Brain assist trophyLucarioZelda, the Skull KidMarthSonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.

  • Still hoping they add Chrom from Fire Emblem Awakening.
  • Yikes, that screen shot is not doing Waluigi justice. Whatever he's holding (golf club?) and his hand look like it's ripped straight from the GameCube.
  • I never understood the appeal of this awful character.
  • This one doesn't make me as sad as Ashley or Skull Kid.

  • Dang... that's kind of upsetting considering he never really gets the attention he needs. Poor fella'. =/

  • Fine by me. Once they give us a starring role besides sports games then he could be a main character. Super Wario Bros. anyone?
  • Waluigi has been denied his rightful spot in the limelight for too damn long. Soon....soon....
  • Good to hear. There are characters far more deserving of main roster status than Waluigi.
  • Much to the disappointment of Dan.

  • Even though he isn't a fighter, he does make for a good annoying assist trophy. Maybe someday he can have the spotlight for once.

  • Good. Waluigi is terrible and only terrible people like him.
  • Ok.

  • This is probably for the best... CUZ YOU CAN'T CONTROL WALUIGI! ...also, there are already too many playable Mario characters.
  • Well that's a shame. I would've liked to see how he controlled.

  • I can hear Dan Ryckert crying.

  • Booo! I wanted him as a character. Dan Ryckert wept today.
  • Well, he is available on Super Smash Brothers Crusade... Albeit it's fan made.

  • Don't give a sh**. He's always been a lousy character and doesn't belong in Smash Bros.

  • Total deal breaker for me!

  • Why? Why did I ever like playing as him in Mario Party 4? Whatever, I don't care that he's an assist trophy.
