ICYMI, there’s a new Super Smash Bros. game coming out for Nintendo Switch in December and it looks pretty flipping sweet.
HOWEVER, the latest trailer/sneak peak of the game has left fans absolutely rattled.
You know Luigi? Brother of Mario, hunter of ghosts, mean-mugger of go-karting?
HE GETS STRAIGHT-UP MURDERED.
You think I’m exaggerating?
The Grim Reaper SEVERS LUIGI’S SOUL FROM HIS BODY.
Fans were not prepared.
And yes, sure, this was all a set-up to introduce two characters from Castlevania that will be in the game, but WAS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO KILL LUIGI?!?
As a few people pointed out, Luigi hasn’t been having the best year.
People were so concerned, Nintendo actually released a statement via Twitter saying that Luigi’s okay!
AngleNews has reached out to Nintendo for additional comment.
But some remain unconvinced.
Plus, Luigi doesn’t look very good in the official art on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate website…
R.I.P. (?) Luigi. 1983-2018.
