Rayman DLC Rumor

UPDATE 02/15/2015

The rumor was apparently faked as the person behind the “prank” has posted another video explaining how he did it.


UPDATE: There is now a video. Keep in mind this video could go down at any time.


Today, a 4chan user posted a series of pictures of the classic Ubisoft hero appearing in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, alleging that they came from an “industry contact.” While it’s possible, probable even that the pictures are fake, it’s worth noting that leaks of Shulk and Duck Hunt’s appearances in the game originated from 4chan, and that Ubisoft was more than happy to let Nintendo put a Rayman trophy in the game. The idea of DLC for Super Smash Bros. isn’t without precedent, either, as Mewtwo is expected to be released as a DLC character this spring.

In short, take this news with a grain of salt. But, should this be real, it would be a great way to pay homage to yet another oldie-but-goodie video game hero.

    I’m honestly not ok with Rayman being there, Ubisoft does not deserve to have a character in Smash.

    • Cephrien

      Lol stfu. Rayman is the shit.
      and besides, even Rayman’s creator has been screwed by Ubisoft.
      Blame the parent, not the child. : P

    • Jahu

      Kinda like the deal with Capcom and Mega Man, right?
      I’m new to Rayman–I only downloaded the demo for Origins last week (I LOVE IT)–so I don’t really know.

    • This Guy

      That is like saying Sonic shouldn’t be on there because he has had crappy games.

    • Taiyaki

      I agree with Pedro. Rayman does not belong in Smash, if he does then so does Lara Croft and Crash Bandicoot.

  • Jahu

    Video now? Holy crap! Rayman confirmed!

    Found a pic of Rayman on the 3DS version, too. This is either an excessively large hoax or this is confirmed.

    • Ryan_oprainfall

      Interesting! The evidence is mounting.

    • Kelechuckuw K.c.W

      This has been confirmed to be fake. This guy just took
      credit and broke down how he did everything. to say the leaste to, this was a well done job, he got alot of the little details spot on there . & it looks pretty legit.

    • Ryan_oprainfall

      Honestly getting tired of people faking things. This one didn’t hurt much because I’m not a huge fan of Rayman, but the Fallout 4 stuff hurt a heck of a lot last year.

      Anyway, this is how rumors work. Never assume anything is true until it is confirmed. It’s why we’re careful to point out at oprainfall that any rumors are likely not true.

    Who is Rayman and why is he in smash bros?

  • James Best

    I’m so excited! I love Rayman!

  • Reiswindy

    New vid (other one got deleted)

    • Kelechuckuw K.c.W

      This has been confirmed to be fake. This guy just took
      credit and broke down how he did everything. I have to say, this was
      quite a job, he got all of the little details spot on. It looked pretty

    If you’re gonna use 4chan (or the better 8chan) as a source, I recommend going through so it saves the link after the thread goes down.
