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!!
Aftermath and InvestigationEdit
It was clearly a deconfirm, right? Wonder Red, Brittany, Phosphora, Saria, and more - they were trophies, they're not playable. The end. Why would Sakurai reveal a trophy before the character? (Note: This did happen once pre-Brawl, however, and Lucina was shown as an image when referring to Amiibos for Smash Bros. during E3) On the other hand, this was entirely unprecedented. An upresented third party series had never gotten a trophy before. What did this mean? Eventually, it started to pass, but then it happened.
A Nintendo of Canada rep said Rayman when he was referring to Mega Man. While this was clearly a slip-up, such as Guy with Sword, Kid Icarus, and Samurai Goroh the Pokemon, somebody decided to take this to JFK levels.
Now? Now, no one knows. I mean, we think it's pretty obvious that he's not playable, and that, like Toad believers, his believers are trying to justify anything they can, but at this point, it seems pretty obvious that he's a goner. But then again, this is the first trophy we've seen that's not an Assist Trophy that didn't reuse the model, so who knows?
Oh, and also, there's this gem from an interview with some guy who works for Ubisoft, from an interview after the roster was determined.
Uh, maybe we'll have the answer [Can Rayman kick Mario's ass?] very soon. (laughs)
—Ubisoft rep (may or may not have been Sakurai in disguise)
On August 3rd. 2014, a Nintendo of Canada rep said that no, Rayman isn't playable, That didn't stop the conspiracy theorists, though!
It Gets WeirderEdit
And then the game hit!
Rayman still has a trophy. As does Commander Video (some indie character only hippies care about).
Meaning Rayman got not one but three trophies while other no-brainers didn't. As in, there were four third-party trophies total, and Rayman's made up three.
And don't even get us started on the leak...
- Rayman has two trophies. It is unknown which one will be used. It still is.
