Now Playing: Every Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Final Smash Move (So Far)

A wild new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate glitch has been discovered, and it really is a sight to behold. As shown off by Master0fHyrule on YouTube, the glitch spawns an apparently infinite number of Waluigi Assist Trophies, which makes the game descend into some kind of purple nightmare.

You can try to trigger the glitch for yourself by getting two Isabelle characters on a stage and, at the same time, deploy the fishing rod on a Waluigi Assist Trophy. If you do this correctly, and maybe get a little lucky, one of the Isabelles will continue to use the Assist Trophy again and again and again, until presumably the end of time. This apparently works with not only the Waluigi Assist Trophy, but numerous others as well. Take a look at the video below to see it in action. The infinite Assist Trophy glitch was apparently discovered by TheAfrowJow, and you can watch their video on the glitch here on YouTube.

Waluigi is not a playable character in Smash Bros. Ultimate, but Nintendo is aware of the groundswell of interest in putting him in the game. Whether or not that ever happens remains to be seen, however.

Smash Bros. Ultimate launched earlier this month, and it enjoyed a record-breaking start in Japan where it had the highest launch sales in the history of the Smash series in Japan. Sales figures for the United States and other parts of the world haven't been announced.

The game has a massive character roster, and it's getting more fighters with post-launch character expansions--including Piranha Plant and Persona 5's Joker. We have our own list of characters we want to see.

In our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate review, Edmond Tran gave the game a 9/10, writing, "An inconsistent online mode and situational downers don't stop Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from shining as a flexible multiplayer game that can be as freewheeling or as firm as you want it to be."
