Piranha Plant will be limited-time free DLC character for Smash Ultimate

Piranha Plant Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The final roster for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is confirmed with Ken and Incineroar, but the fun doesn’t stop there. For a limited time, Piranha Plant will be a free DLC character for those who purchase Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and have their My Nintendo accounts in working order. Piranha Plant is still in development for the game, which is why he is not counted as part of the official roster and why he is DLC.

My initial reaction to this news is–what? In fact, I think the collective reaction of the whole Internet right now is just… What?

Stay strong, Waluigi fans.
