Yeah, we've definitely discussed it. Ubisoft has definitely brought up the idea of Rayman in Smash to Nintendo for a while:You know I honestly kinda wonder if Rayman fits the criteria of what Pass 2 is supposedly being a pattern of characters that were left out of Base game that couldn't make it or "fixing/patching" it up.
Especially given Rayman's trophy in Sm4sh, one would certainly think he may have at the very least been considered for Ultimate.
Plus that Rayman's had content removed from Smash 4 in transition to Smash Ultimate (from 3 trophies to just a single spirit, and two other Ubisoft series being better represented) which we speculate could have been held off on purpose for a DLC spirit board later, similar case to what theoretically may have happened with Sephiroth and Final Fantasy 7.I'm sure we've brought it up before but y'all remember this quote from Michel Ancel in 2013?

Combine that with this whole "missed opportunities" theory, what we know from Steve that character negotiations can take a few years, maybe we got a true shot at this!
