The lights are on
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 trophy, Lucario, Zelda, the Skull Kid, Marth, Sonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.

I really enjoyed Super Smash Brothers Melee and Super Smash Brothers Brawl. The characters had incredible abilities, and the levels were really fun to play on. I loved to play as Link, and use his finishing move to knock opponents out of the stage. I can't wait to play the 3DS version of Super Smash Brothers.
