As far as we know, at th is point in time, Waluigi is not going to be a playable character in Smash Bros. Ultimate. Fans have cried, screamed, begged, and berated Nintendo about it, but there's been no change. What exactly does Nintendo think about all of this? Here's Nintendo of Canada PR rep Andrew Collins commenting on the situation.
I think it’s great when something builds naturally because, you know, as a marketer, when you have something that goes viral like that it’s brilliant. You can’t buy that. You can’t create it. And when the fans do something like that, it’s amazing. But it’s so good to see from a passionate side of things. And let’s face it, it’s funny.
I’ve seen some of the photos. I’ve seen some of the artwork that people have created, and it’s fantastic to see their passion. And, you know, there are some gifted people out there.
