I grew up a video game nerd. When Super Smash Bros. hit the Nintendo 64, it changed my life forever. My life was then changed again when Super Smash Bros. Melee came out (the gamecube controller is the ideal controller you want to use. If you think otherwise you're crazy). I'll be honest, I fell off for the other Super Smash Bros. games after that but came back for the next installment, SSB Ultimate. But just like the rest of the internet, I'm actually heart broken that Luigi just gets killed in this trailer right away. Hi, Nintendo, he's a core character on a plethora of games. My virgin eyes were not ready for that!
Are we gonna ignore the fact that Luigi got murdered in cold blood and is literally staring at his lifeless corpse as a ghost? pic.twitter.com/kzCHAZDI1G— Masahiro Sakurai (@Nin_SmashBros) August 8, 2018
However, Nintendo did reach out to comment that Luigi is just fine. All is right in the world!
