Rayman trophy revealed for Smash Bros.

630x

Smash Bros. head honcho Masahiro Sakurai revealed earlier today a new Smash trophy on Miiverse. To the surprise of many, the trophy is that of a third party character: Rayman. Not to be confused with an assist trophy, this in-game collectable trophy was actually designed by Ubisoft themselves and not Sakurai’s team.

The trophy reveal came a few hours before the Smash Bros. website was to announce a new character, which led many to believe Rayman would be added to the roster. Unfortunately, that was not the case for many Rayman fans. You can read Sakurai’s statement on the Rayman trophy below.

“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!!”

    Aside from Captain Falcon’s bit, I actually liked this trophy reveal more than the new character reveal.

    Admittedly, I’m not a huge investor of the Fire Emblem series, but, still. Coolio.

    Who doesn’t love a Falcon Punch? Would be the same game without it. 😉

    As for Rayman Trophy I think its awesome and hopefully allot more third party trophy’s from characters who have appeared on Nintendo systems, the more the merrier! It’s like a celebration of all things gaming.

    Shame.
    I think Rayman would fit quite well into a fighting game, actually.
