SALT LAKE CITY — “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” debuted its trailer to much fanfare Tuesday afternoon. It helped that the game announced that every playable character from the franchise will be available for the new game’s roster.

But there’s one Nintendo character who won’t be in the game — Waluigi. And fans couldn’t be more upset.

For the uninitiated, Waluigi is the bizarro version of Mario’s less-popular brother Luigi. The character often hangs around with Wario, the devilish and evil version of Mario.

The character has been available in several other Nintendo games, including the upcoming “Mario Tennis Aces,” which will drop June 22.

But Waluigi won’t be playable in this new “Super Smash” game. He will appear as a trophy of sorts that players can destroy after they win a battle.

Other than that, he won’t make an appearance.

Fans shared their disappointment on Twitter following the announcement, according to Mashable.
