American fast-food company, McDonald's, has confirmed that its mascot, Ronald McDonald, will not be in Nintendo's upcoming platform fighter, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

That's right, in the most shocking news of the year, it has been confirmed that Big Mac Ronny, aka the protagonist of every other of your childhood nightmares, will not be a guest character in the newest entry in the beloved fighting series .... for now.

The news comes way of the Twitter account of McDonald's Great White North, who revealed the crushing news during an interaction with a curious fan.

Interestingly, the Canadian McDonald's teases that while Ronny won't be making an appearance in the new game, that could change, and in the process restores hope that Nintendo will do the right thing and add everyone's fourth-favorite famous clown to the mix. I mean, they added back the Ice Climbers, so the least they can do is supplement that with Ronald McDonald.

Suffice to say, fans are ready for Nintendo to pull the trigger for the ultimate crossover:


At the moment, it's unclear whether there are any plans to add The Dabbing Burger King, though my inside sources are telling me that Colonel Harland Sanders remains a possibility as a DLC character.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is poised to release next month on December 7 via the Nintendo Switch. Whether it will launch with the fast-food mascot mains everyone has been asking for, remains to be seen.
