Super Smash Bros


 

The most recent Nintendo Direct left us all in shock, for various reasons – most of them good. It could be the 900+ music tracks in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, or the reveal of new characters like Simon Belmont and King K. Rool. Most shocking of all, however, was the fact that Luigi apparently died a few minutes into the direct. R.I.P. Luigi. You had a good run.

Or not, apparently, because the Nintnedo UK VS account has now had to clarify on Twitter that Luigi isn’t dead.

It’s pretty obvious that Nintendo wasn’t actually going to kill off one of their longest-running characters in a promotional video, but that makes it all the funnier that someone still had to step in and clarify. And, of course, it hasn’t stopped fans from doubling down on declaring Luigi’s death.

Regardless of the fan reaction, we’ll see Luigi alive and well again on December 7th, when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases for the Nintendo Switch.
