It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, and to celebrate one of the most pointless occasions of the year, Nintendo created a poll over at Play Nintendo.
Nintendo wanted to know which of its most-famous characters you’d ask to be your Valentine, and the results are definitely surprising.
The poll asked: “Who would you want to give a Valentine to?
“Mario is brave, Princess Peach is kind, Isabelle is helpful, and Wario is…gassy. Would you want to give one of them a Valentine? You can choose from some of these beloved friends below!”
The options you could vote for included some understandable choices: Mario, Link and princesses Peach and Zelda. However, you have to wonder who voted for Kirby, Pikachu or Jibanyan…
Winning by a landslide victory was Waluigi, who took first place with nearly 1500 votes. To put that into perspective, Animal Crossing‘s Isabelle took second place, with just 110 votes [via Reddit].

I wonder if this means Nintendo will FINALLY start listening to fan requests to get Waluigi in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Waluigi hater: Waluigi will never be in smash! Stop it! Your embarrassing yourselves. He’s an assist, GIVE IT UP!

Who would you have voted for?
2019 is set to be a great year for Nintendo, with the likes of Animal Crossing and a canon Pokemon RPG headed to the Switch sometime within the next twelve months.
Nintendo is still riding the wave of success that the Switch has brought, ending 2018 on a high thanks to the amazing sales numbers of games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee over the Christmas period.
Keep the good work coming, Nintendo!
