    Bomberman disappointed me a lot.
    But as far as I know. ( PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong or its not true) sakurai actually considered him and negotiated with Konami for it .
    But sakurai just couldn't put a him a moveset decent enough for Satisfy Konami.
    And so he decided to make him an Assist Trophy.
    Man I would have prefered that Simon Belmont were the Assist Trophy and Bomberman were the 2nd Konami Rep

    If Bomberman and Waluigi end up being playable, I'm predicting that there will be Echo Assist Trophies.

      They won't lol. They both literally pop out of assist trophies and were used a examples of how the trophies work.

    Daisy confirmed, YES!!! Smash Bros is complete for me!
    Waluigi deconfirmed for 3 in a row, I knew Daisy would make it in before him.
    Takamaru deconfirmed... again! I really wanted him as a newcomer in this game, that's a shame.
    Poor Lyn, still didn't make it in.
    I feel so bad for Krystal, she would've been the perfect Star Fox newcomer, but it's cool to see her nonetheless.
    Bomberman, just ruined his fans dreams.

    How come Ridley is playable in smash but Bomberman and Waluigi aren't? R.I.P. What's even worse is that Waluigi gets K.Od :(((((

    Never have I seen a fanbase were you are given literally 65+ characters in a game, with 83+ stanges, across a ridiculous amount of game series for the history of video games, and people still are willing to "boycott" a game over the exclusion of one spin off character.
    Waluigi fans are completely embarassing.

    • Ediogge

      @Vincent Jones Not going to lie they are not Waluigi fans, they are just there for the meme. I can speak that me and pretty much the entire community loath the kind of "Waluigi fan" who demands his inclusion.

    • Vincent Jones
      Vincent Jones 10 months ago +2

      I hope they don't. They don't deserve it. But they probably will cave and buy it because at the end of the day it is Smash.

    On the bright side I’m glad he’s not just some random Trophy you collect like Rayman was, but if Smash Flash 2 could make him playable I thought Sakurai would’ve been able to do the same too.

    One has to appreciate the art of how badly Waluigi was deconfirmed. Not only is he one of the first Assist Trophies revealed for Ultimate, but he was also used as a punching bag to show off the Assist Trophy score mechanic added.
    It's hilarious!

  • pmmn000

    R.I.P. Bomberman, he could be stuck in assist trophy limbo like Waluigi. Would’ve loved to have seen a cinematic trailer of a few smash vets walking cautiously around in a block maze. Among the vets, Sonic runs around then you see him trip on a bomb then see a humorous far off shot of him shooting into the sky from an explosion. The rest of the vets turn around to find Bomberman with a bomb in hand ready to bowl the rest of the vets with a bomb kick... What a waste as a assist

  • CyberVader

    Honestly, while I'm sad that Waluigi isn't playable, I'm glad that he's in the game anyway, even if he's just a trophy, besides the Miis are coming back so I can just add Waluigi in myself.

  • Vince Roc

    I'm depressed that Bomberman Was a Assist Trophy. They should have made Bomberman into a Playable Character.
    And I knew that Bomberman is going to be Waluigi 2.0

  • rschaosmaster

    Any chance Sakurai was trolling and possibly the assist trophy could be removed with DLC if they are added as a character?

    • Vincent Jones

    Such as shame that Bomberman is not playable. Sigh. Even with all playable characters from previous games & even new ones, poor Bomberman couldn't be in the playable roster.

    "We need Bomberman and Waluigi as full playable characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate they *DONT belong as Assist Trophies. Both characters deserve real recognition. Let's *UNITE all the gamers in the world to deal with this injustice!"

  • Brandon Williams
    Brandon Williams Year ago +1

    I feel bad for all the Waluigi Fans!😂😂😂
    Daisy wins it big! Daisy has ascended beyond the Kart Racing, Partying, Sports Games and made her way into Smash! I’m immensely shocked she made it before him.
    But damn I wonder if Bomberman could’ve worked or if Sakurai couldn’t think of a moveset for him but I think it’s better than nothing. Rayman was just a Trophy so yes I’d take him being an Assist over just being a collectible.

  • Minus Bros.
    Minus Bros. Year ago +19

    I still think it'd be really hard to give Bomberman a diverse moveset. So for the case of him as an Assist Trophy, I'm OK with this.

    • Mr.cooldude10
      Mr.cooldude10 Year ago

      Actually as far as I can tell Sega still owns the Bayonetta IP.
      Not only that but Platinum Games doesn't appear in either the credits of Smash 4 nor the reveal trailer for Bayonetta. It seems as far as Nintendo is concerned Bayonetta is a Sega character.

    • CJ Moore
      CJ Moore Year ago

      Mr.cooldude10 Sega only published the first Bayonetta with Nintendo publishing the second. Really, she’s more of the Platinum Games rep given they’re who made her. I highly doubt Sega has any stakes in that franchise anymore.

    • Mr.cooldude10
      Mr.cooldude10 Year ago

      The only problem with that theory is if Shadow does make it in then he would actually be the third Sega character after Sonic and Bayonetta. (Sega publish the Bayonetta games.)
      Although I see the logic in two charcters per-third party developer, I think having three would allow a good balance that couldn't exist otherwise. In Sega's case, two characters could be from their main series (Sonic) while the remaining character could be from another one (Bayonetta). Or hypothetically for Konami, they could instead use their three characters to represent three different series (Bomberman, Castlevania, Metal Gear).
      I know that sounds like a lot more third party characters on paper but in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate there's overall going to be more Nintendo characters per series than there have been in any Smash game prior. As long as that balance is kept in check, having a few more third party characters wouldn't be a problem in my eyes.
      Plus the rule of three is just a general good rule to follow.

    • CJ Moore
      CJ Moore Year ago

      Mr.cooldude10 my theory is they want to balance it out by having only two representatives for each third party company this time, which might explain the speculation of Shadow being made a character. Not sure who’d they get for Namco or Square, but I’m kind of hoping for Lara Croft.

    • Mr.cooldude10
      Mr.cooldude10 Year ago

      Technically we don't know for sure that Simon Belmont is gonna' be in the game yet, though to be fair it does seem pretty certain at this point.
      Even if Simon Belmont is in though, I still think having three Konami characters would be perfectly acceptable as long as they all play unique from one another as well as the rest of the roster. Konami's history within the gaming world would make having three characters feel fairly natural I think.
