With so much information that came out of the amazing Smash Bros. Ultimate direct today, fans spotted something rather unique in the background. Two chairs, suspiciously the same two-colors as the fan favorite character Waluigi. Fans believe this detail in the direct was a nod to Waluigi potentially joining the Smash Bros. roster eventually. Players have wanted this addition for years. There’s even a petition to include the character in in Smash Bros.Ultimate. As of writing it has almost 40,000 signatures.
This guy pointed it out on reddit (https://t.co/u4xuvHh7JK) But take a look at these chairs next to Sakurai! WHO HAS A YELLOW AND PURPLE CHAIR? This has to have been done on purpose, I have a feeling that Waluigi isn't actually an assist trophy and Sakurai's been trolling us pic.twitter.com/zVLtMBb85j

Was this purposely done to suggest he will be a playable character? Do you want to see Waluigi in Smash Bros.Ultimate? Could this be an actual hint? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
