Rayman Confirmed as a Trophy for Smash Bros. 4, Sakurai Explains Why

Rayman Smash Bros. 4 Trophy

On Miiverse, Masahiro Sakurai of Nintendo revealed that Rayman from games such as Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends will be featured as a full, 3D Trophy in Super Smash Bros. 4 on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

As you can see, the development team at Nintendo was ecstatic when Ubisoft sent the team a completed scan of Rayman.

“Pic of the day. 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!!”


Of course, with the arrival of more third party characters comes more criticism. Within minutes of Nintendo’s announcement of the Rayman trophy, it was trending on Twitter—with many negative comments as well.
