As previously reported, director Masahiro Sakurai said Mai would not be added to the game because, as he explained, “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is for good boys and girls of many different ages.” Inevitable reactions followed.

As Automaton Media reports, players are naming their Mii Fighters after the missing Mai.
