Nintendo Just Embarrassed Waluigi and Fans Are Pissed
There's no doubt that one of the major draws of playing Super Smash Bros. is you can play as a ton of different Nintendo characters. On Tuesday, Nintendo announced the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game, which will be released in December for Switch. This time, there are even more characters. The trailer goes as far as saying, "Everyone is here."
Many Nintendo fans are crying "WAAAAH" because everyone is not here. Poor, villainous Waluigi -- basically the Mirror Universe version of Luigi -- is not a playable character. Everyone's favorite meme-able Wa-character was hosed. It turns out, he has a lot of fans, and they want answers.
I feel so bad for Waluigi. Can you imagine a party, where EVERYONE is invited except you? Your asshole kinda-brother who farts on everything and eats all the food and drives his super loud motorcycle is invited and NOT you— Jesse Nowack (@Nowacking) June 12, 2018
I CAN'T BELIEVE WALUIGI WAS THE CHARACTER THEY USED FOR "YOU CAN KILL ASSIST TROPHIES"— 🏳️🌈Ryan The Frog🐸 (@RyanRibbity) June 12, 2018
I can still see Waluigi being a playable fighter— Colin (@IntroSpecktive) June 13, 2018
Waluigi summoning a Waluigi assist trophy during a match is the most Waluigi thing I can think of
Some are mourning his omission, but others know the real reason Waluigi isn't here. He turned down the opportunity. He's got wa-lot of other things going on.
waluigi was asked to be in smash yet again but he respectfully declined because he's a pacifist who just wants to play tennis with his friends :^)— BEST BOUT MACHINE (@brooksasanoun) June 12, 2018
Nintendo too scared of Waluigi’s raw sexual energy to include him in the Super Smash Bros. roster.— Robert Gordon (@Robert_Gordon_) June 12, 2018
In the new game, you get access to more than 60 characters including stalwarts like Mario and Luigi and characters who are new to the franchise like Ridley from Metroid and Inklings from Splatoon. You know, "Everyone is here."
Everyone, that is, except Waluigi, unless fans raise a stink long enough that things somehow change. However, you can get your Waluigi fill when Nintendo releases Mario Tennis Aces on June 22. Or maybe they can make him some kind of retro game for when the NES Classic is reissued later this month.
