Waluigi has been confirmed as an Assist Trophy in Smash Bros. 4.
Luigi's rival was also an Assist Trophy in the previous game, Super Smash Bros Brawl, making this his second appearance in the series.
Introducing him on the Smash Bros Miiverse forum, the game's producer Masahiro Sakurai also addressed inevitable complaints from Mario fans who wanted Waluigi to be a playable character.
"Once again, Waluigi's Assist Trophy joins the collection, which also means he's not a playable character," he stated. "Just because you try hard doesn't mean you'll make it into the battle."
Assist Trophies are secondary characters who are summoned at random when a player activates an Assist Trophy item.
Brawl featured a total of 27 Assist Trophies, including Waluigi. Punch-Out!! star Little Mac was also an Assist Trophy in Brawl, but he's been promoted to playable character status in the upcoming fourth game.
A number of other new characters will also be making their playable Smash Bros. debuts. This Super Smash Bros trailer revealed Capcom's Mega Man and Animal Crossing's villager will be playable for the first time in the series, while Wii Fit Trainer was confirmed shortly afterwards.
It was also recently announced that Rosalina and Luma from Super Mario Galaxy will also feature for the first time,
Nintendo has also confirmed a number of returning characters since the game's original reveal. These include Diddy Kong, King Dedede, Luigi,Captain Olimar, Sonic, Princess Peach and Toon Link.
