If you have seen the latest trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate then you may have been rather shocked to see Luigi being murdered, sliced with a scythe wielded by Death himself, his soul ripped from his now lifeless body. You can view the scene below, it starts around one minute in to the trailer.
It’s exceedingly dark for Nitendo, a company known for cuddly characters and cheerful games, so fans have been rather worried that the green hatted Italian may really be dead. However, Nintendo have tweeted a reassurance.
Luigi is okay
