Rayman frozen in ice

Nintendo and Ubisoft might have grown increasingly friendly during the Switch generation, but unfortunately, it's still not enough for Masahiro Sakurai and his team working on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to include the French publisher's iconic mascot Rayman in the base version on the game.

Still, with four DLC character slots remaining – anything is possible. That's why the internet is currently going crazy about a particular tweet that popped up a few days ago on Twitter, suggesting Rayman is frozen within the ice of Ultimate's Battlefield stage. Take a close look at the screenshots above and below and see if you can spot him.

Can you see Rayman?
How about now?

Of course, this has led to wild speculation the limbless mascot will be added to Ultimate as DLC, while others believe it's a sign the character is literally frozen in the past.

As pointed out by GameXplain, this texture has been visible since Version 1.0. Not to forget, Rayman is already featured in Ultimate as a spirit and previously appeared as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. There's also a history of Smash series hiding textures off the reflections of trophies in both Brawl and Melee, so this latest finding could be something similar.
