I'm going to defend Rayman's case for Smash given this information:

It's Sakurai's word that matters in the end. It's not a mystery to anyone in this thread that Ubisoft treats their once-mascot poorly nowadays, but if Sakurai wants Rayman from Ubisoft, they'll have to say yes, they can't really argue or push a different character. We have Banjo, Megaman, Simon and Snake in Smash, who are all from poorly treated franchises, but Sakurai specifically asked for and were all given to him. If Sakurai walks up to Ubisoft for a character, I guarantee you it'll be for Rayman, as he must be well aware of his popularity, and if Ubisoft doesn't comply then he won't go for it. Ubisoft would be foolish to turn the opportunity down regardless of the character Sakurai wants anyway.

In conclusion, Ubisofts negligence towards Rayman's character doesn't lower his chances in any way.

Edit: Besides, it's too early to judge the show based on a single piece of concept art. I'll wait for more information before I grow concerned. At the very least we should be somewhat glad that the series is coming back in some way.

While I have my doubts on that show, in the article, there's been only said that
it was "inspired by the popular Rayman franchise", not that it's not at all about him.
Let's try to look at the bright side and hope.

Somewhere in the West.

Rayman and Tetris are finally allowed to be in the same game! Albeit as spirits, everything has to start somewhere, I guess. Even if more Tetris content will take forever, when Henk Rogers is involved.

Not gonna lie, fellas, I'm legitimately upset that the newcomer speculation thread will discuss Ezio 20 times and Rabbids 5 times before even mentioning Rayman once.

They obviously don’t want to put the time to talk about him because of the whole “Spirit’s Deconfirm blah blah blah” (than again Rabbids are Spirits aswell since they’re 3 Rabbid Spirits while Rayman has one, seems to be a hypocritical thing to suggest that 1-Spirit is a complete deconfirmation but 3-Spirits is passable)

Well, pure Rabbids don't have spirits, just the Mario Rabbids characters. However, some will still argue things like Rex and Geno being locks post-pass though.

I don't really care who people support though, you're allowed to like Ezio over Rayman, it just upsets me to think that Rayman's become a joke-tier character to a lot of people.

So was Banjo & Kazooie for the longest time being on Rayman’s level when everyone was talking about Minecraft Steve and things unraveled to being that everyone has now reversed the opinion from Minecraft Steve being the joke character for Ultimate.

Also It honestly doesn’t matter how you differentiate between Normal Rabbids or Mario Rabbids, they’re at the end of the Day just Rabbids and they are the exact same thing. Plus Rabbids are born from Rayman and the likelihood of them getting in is in enthatic 10% since Every pioneer 3rd-Party Character (Sonic/SEGA, Mega Man/Capcom, Pac-Man/Namco, Banjo & Kazooie/Microsoft) has been the most important selected pick while the other side characters that are popular remain as background characters like Zero, Tails, Ms. Pac-Man, Shadow, Proto Man, Alucard, etc.

One other thing, Assassins Creed is not that popular in EAST since only 3-Games where ever released in Japan like Liberation (PSP), Bloodline (PS Vita) & Odyssey (Switch). So the likelihood of a Playable Assassins Creed character is as likely as a Mortal Kombat character being playable which is to say 3% likely to happen for Ultimate

Devil's advocate, but Persona spawned from Shin Megami Tensei and only Persona is represented in Smash. I wouldn't call this an argument against the Rabbids.

Like, you're not wrong in Rayman realistically having the best chances of the three characters, my complaint was the Smash community's perspective on Limbless Ray, not his true chances.

To be fair Persona did have the Shin Megami Tensei atmosphere in it, likewise with Rabbid games having the aura and world of Rayman atmosphere so really it’s honestly like how you get the idea of how Sakurai prefers the foundation of the World of those Games

The Smash Community are not Really Ubisoft Fans since they don’t have that big of an attention span of the History of Ubisoft Art that Rayman laid the foundation of what Games we would have years later.

Sup ya'll! Count me in as a Rayman supporter. :kirby: Seriously tho, why isn't our limbless boy not in Smash yet? :confused: Yves should check with Miyamoto to see if he can put in the word on his behalf so Sakurai can put our boy in the roster (SPIRIT UPGRADE-O!!!!).

interesting, reading the thread a bit, they found a render similar to it from Rayman 3, but doesn't quite line up with the original render.

(The one they provided was actually a paintover, so i dug a little deeper for a more official one. best i could find was from a youtube video showing renders.)
. 1573403225732.png 1573402097739.png

the notable differences are the ears/hair, and lack of teeth in the render. the nose is also slightly smaller, and the hood is further down. all of these could be edited in if given enough time.

while this could very easily be fake, i notice the render pose would actually be perfect for solving the potential Amiibo issue he'd have by putting his hands on his hips for his Smash render, causing alot less supports needed on his base. a somewhat clever workaround.

I'm still heavily skeptical about this one, but it's always good to see him be talked about.

It’s a shame there is no poll option on this chatboard but the hell with it. So to everyone that is here to help with investigating this image, I want to ask for you guys to find some more information regarding the image that we’re seeing. Would you be interested respond to simply Yay or Nay

Not gonna lie, I missed the crappy blurry cropped image kind of leak.

Honestly with all the convincing leaks we've been having these last couple of days, watch this one be the one that ends up being true lol

It'd be a major shot in the arm for this thread, that's for sure.
The leak as a whole looks bogus in my eyes, but I like the touched-up R3 pose. Wonder what artist is behind it, provided it's fake.
Yeah my first reaction to this was "have we not suffered enough to you?" but on the contrary I'm happy Rayman gets noticed for something.
