Super Smash Bros. game director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that Ubisoft’s limbless Rayman will be a trophy ahead of the playable character announcement later today. In his daily Miiverse post, Sakurai casually revealed the platform character to his followers, saying that Ubisoft’s designers had sent Nintendo a unique character model for Rayman.
It’s certainly an interesting move from Ubisoft, but let us know your thoughts in the comment section below. Remember you can catch the live reveal at 3pm BST / 7am PDT today. Here’s what Sakurai said on Miiverse:
“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!!”
Thanks to all those who sent this in.
