The community of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are currently being polled in order to find out who they want to see as new playable DLC characters in this crossover multiplayer universe.
According to The Ballot Man, the number of survey participants has already reached about 20,000. Voting continues here.
The leader is the character named Waluigi. He has about 1,700 votes. Heavy (Team Fortress 2) is in second place with roughly 1200 votes, followed by Rayman (over 1000). The fourth, fifth, and sixth places are currently held by Steve, Sora (Kingdom Hearts), and Kirbie's Bandana Dee.
The voting results reflect the top 29 fighters, and you can check out the full list of the most popular characters if you need:
Waluigi has been long-requested by fans for many years now, ever since the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Nintendo disappointed Waluigi fans over and over again, as the character continued to appear as an Assist Trophy three times over.
Other characters, like Isabelle and Ridley, started as Assist Trophies or stage hazards and later were promoted to fully-playable characters, but Waluigi was not as lucky.
And this topical poll among members of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is best at showing the developers that his time has come.
Rayman, who appears third place on the ballot, has become long-absent from video games in general, with the recent Ubisoft Forward upsetting many fans with the character's absence, but perhaps now is time for the armless mascot to finally make a comeback.
Of course, this survey is not official and does not 100% guarantee that its leaders will be added to the game. However, it is certainly important to understand how developers can please players and, possibly, attract new ones. It's a shame that there is no parallel poll on whether to expand Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on PC, Xbox, Play Station, and more consoles. This game is exclusively available for the Nintendo Switch by the present time.
