Possible Rayman DLC Leak For Super Smash Bros Wii U?

This comes direct from 4Chan so whether its legitimacy can be trusted remains to be seen. The fairly convincing off-screen images show that Rayman could be joining the Super Smash Bros roster as possible downloadable content. You may remember that a Nintendo Canada employee implied that Rayman would be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. This was back in August.

      1. Gat damn it!! The deletion pretty much confirms it! Damn spoilers! We can’t be surprised with anything nowadays… :(

        Though it would explain why Ubisoft went to a far extent providing the RM trophy.

      2. Why don’t you look at ALL of the “joins the battle” screens? They all have the same background. There isn’t any reason to call this fake yet.

      3. Idk these pics make me believe its fake even more now why show half of raymans body when all the other characters have their full body showing? And why have this screen at all? Dlc u would just get rayman u wouldn’t have fight him to unlock him.

      4. We’ve yet to get any DLC characters so you’re assumption isn’t necessary correct or incorrect. For all we know the DLC we buy unlocks the ability to unlock the character. Or maybe we get this screen as soon as hit start after you install the DLC. We still don’t know, I am however leaning towards the ‘fake’ argument though.

      5. Well the unlock screen for dark pit is only to his legs up, so that kind of disproves your first argument about the full bodies.

    1. There’s just two things that these pics have going for it. 1. Mewtwo doesn’t simply use the model Nintendo showed us or PM, and 2. This doesn’t have the obvious mistake of putting Rayman after Mii Fighters, this has Mewtwo and Rayman where they would be placed

    2. I work with PhotoShop everyday at work and I can say making those images isn’t an easy job. Maybe some easy Clone Stamps and Quick Selections with Healing Brush Tools would work with it, but not easily and definitely would take more than 5 hours. I have used PhotoShop CS6 everyday for two years.

      Like

      1. 2 years? That much? Well maybe that explains why it would take you 5 hours to make something like this. With good enough HQ images I would say 10 minutes tops, but I have been using PS since 07 so like I said, that’s explains that. Its really easy to fake something like this. All you have to do is download the HQ Roster image that’s on the internet, cleanly edit Rayman in, save the image to a thumb drive, put thumb drive on a new ish TV, open image on said TV, take the picture at angle to create a sense of authenticity, and that’s it.

  1. While I have no idea whether or not this is fake (It’s hard for me to immediately write this off as fake since this particular render of Rayman seems to be completely new) I do love the idea of Rayman being in Smash; there really isn’t a reason for him to NOT be in it.
    I still hold to my old theory that Rayman was originally going to be in Smash (evidence being the seemingly out-of-place Rayman trophies in the game), by Sakauri decided to stop development on him when Ubisoft broke the whole “Rayman Legends will be a Wii U exclusive” deal, which was around the time the list was being finalized. I know Sakauri stated that all the characters that were in the game were finalized on the same day, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility that some of the characters on that list were cut, since that’s already made evident by the last-minute cut of the Ice Climbers. Anyways, it’s just a thought. I hope Rayman will someday have a spot in Smash.

    1. That theory sounds pretty stupid when you take how long Rayman has been in success, Sonic and Pac-Man have games that didn’t make it to Nintendo systems, if the roster was finalized as early as 2012 or 11 Sakurai wouldn’t make the creative decision of just dropping him for that old joke. How would anyone know Ubisoft even ask for his inclusion the first time?

  2. I dunno, it’s possible. Between this and the Nintendo Canada slip?

    On top of that, I’m mostly looking at the icon behind him (a Lum from the newest Rayman games, apparently original art), and the fact that it looks like original art of the character. On top of that, it’s exactly the same stylization of the trophy, in terms of details to the face.

    Could actually be legit.

    1. It looks newly drawn like the other pictures. It’s the eyes and brows that are throwing people off. The Mewtwo model looks different too. Lets wait instead of questioning the model work as a lot of them look like existing renders (which is why there was a heated debate over the ESRB leak)

    1. Sonic and Pac-Man had even less success than Rayman in recent years. Nintendo recognizes gaming icons this isn’t about whether they like the company or not. Sega used to be enemies with Nintendo then they became close friends, let’s just forget the company itself and just accept the games are fantastic. Rayman is awesome and deserves to be in (more than Snake sadly)

      1. Rayman has been here since the 90s and had big success on Nintendo systems. People only know him from his modern cartoonish games. It used to be a respectable 3D platformer to the point where Rayman 2 was considered the game that “changed 3D platformers”

      6. Maybe not a higher level, but a higher workload since you’re taking Calc and Algebra at the same time. It’s definitely a higher level than hs Algebra though. But I also think hs Algebra was easier because it was spread out through the whole year. Now we only have the length of a semester to learn the material.

        I also took it during college with the same course structure. I took it during a summer semester lol. I did well though. Most of the class failed and all they did was complain that they didn’t get the score they wanted or how the professor was not fair, haha. I’m also taking Discrete Math by the way, which I’m finding harder than Calc.

    Bear in mind though that these decisions are entirely up to Nintendo and Nintendo alone.
    We can’t decide what characters can or cannot be in their games, and there is really nothing you can do to stop them.
    If this turns out to be true, then that’s awesome and means we now officially have 2 additional characters added to the roster.
    If it turns out to be false, then that’s a bummer but it’s not really something to make a fuss over.
    The most we could do right now is wait for a confirmation.

  16. I believe it. Looking at characters separate from the company’s actions (since Megaman clearly deserved a spot despite the fact that Capcom has buried and completely forgotten about him), Rayman and Bomberman are kinda the next two third-parties that should be included. I’m looking forward to this assuming it’s real. I’m more concerned with Smash being a great game and having a big, great cast of unique characters to play as. I agree entirely that Ubisoft shouldn’t get squat in Smash, but I’d also be hard-pressed to argue that Rayman himself doesn’t deserve a spot. It’s a difficult situation… but I still think he deserves it more than Snake did at least.

  17. I believe it. It looks real to me and everything adds up (like why there are Ubisoft trophies in Smash Bros 4). Only thing that sucks is that Ubisoft doesn’t really support Nintendo consoles. Had Ubisoft been a better supporter, I would have been all for this.

    I bet the decision to add him in the game was made years ago when Nintendo fans were praising Ubisoft for being supporters of the Wii U. How could the developers have known the praise would end and turned completely around? No sense in letting all their hard work towards creating the character go to waste. Might as well still release him.

    I’ll use him. I think Rayman is a cool character. Just not too fond of the company that owns him.
