We’re set to see a new Super Smash Bros. challenger later today, we’ve no idea who it could be, but if this trophy reveal is anything to go by, it could be a character from Ubisoft’s gigantic roster. Earlier today, director Masahiro Sakurai, revealed that Rayman would be making an appearance as a trophy in the game. Maybe Ubisoft have some faith in Nintendo’s systems after all.
The latest news comes from Sakurai via the Miiverse, he wrote, “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!!”
The update was also accompanied by the image below, a wonderful Super Smash Bros. trophy featuring everyone’s favourite limbless character, Rayman. Could this be hinting at who’s to come later today? Leave your comments below!
