So today I was scrolling through youtube and I saw a poll from Nintendo out there in the open with choices; Mario!, Mario?, Luigi, WAHAHA. at the time of writing the respective results for 265K votes were 11%, 4%, 25%, and 61%. A Whole 161,650 people voted for the purple hatted man of mischief without even seeing his name. Waluigi Is a HUGE meme for Nintendo, however, that works in their favor.
This isn't a meme post but a question on what Nintendo is doing or going to do. Scrolling around comments and other places on the internet you can see people hating or not understanding the inclusion of Waluigi in smash or the hype of him. He isn't a very fleshed-out character, and he is a sidekick villain. Yet he gets brought up just enough to never die out as a meme. Anyways, Nintendo is a really big company with plenty of money and a decently long future ahead of them with their success. I think in the future a game involving Waluigi as a prominent character is likely to come sooner than later. For smash ultimate there are 5 more fighters confirmed to be unlocked. They are being released months apart from each other. Likely there will be even MORE fighters after that. Waluigi has plenty of money potential. Nintendo would probably release a game for him before they made him into a character so those people saying he won't be special enough will see him blossom into something more before being added to smash. Nintendo has the ability to get rights to make him a character using their money and influence. If they can go out of their way to make piranha plant or several Fire Emblem characters they could easily have the resources(time, money, and manpower) to add Waluigi. They made a game for captain toad that sold over a million copies and Luigi's mansion sold over 6 million. So if they made a game for a character that everyone talks about then I am sure it would do plenty good if they put the focus on him, Doesn't have to be the best, just unique and New and people would get it. The news of the game would travel fast around the internet and you would see Waluigi memes of him getting noticed by Nintendo Senpai spreading. Nintendo is GREAT at keeping secrets, which is shown why no one knows what the fighters are until Nintendo wants you to so really they could have a whole Waluigi franchise planned out and no one would know.
TLDR; I think Nintendo is riding out the meme that is Waluigi, They will cash out on who he is before the meme starts to die out and I think that time will be sooner than later because I have been seeing more stuff about him pop up recently. It's not really if but when they will do something. The creation of a game would light up the internet with Wahs.
