Yesterday’s Super Smash Bros.. Ultimate-centric Nintendo Direct flow started off something of a dim note: we watched some terrified Luigi running through a castle in his classic Luigi’s Mansion apparel hoping to prevent snakes, creepy landscapes, along with mummies, all while equipped just with a plunger for safety. Eventually, he ran straight into the grim reaper itself. With one fell swoop, the reaper swung its scythe and pumped Luigi’s soul by his body.
Naturally, this was a smart set up to declare which Simon and Ritcher Belmont from the Castlevania series will be joining the already robust cast of Super Smash Bros.. Ultimate as it lands on Switch after this season. The traditional vampire hunters will be bringing their original brand of battle into the name with a wealth of famous weaponry including axes, crossesand holy water and also their iconic whips.
But allegedly killing one off of Nintendo’s most well-known characters didn’t go down too well with fans of the series, so Nintendo has resigned to affirm that Luigi failed, in reality, survive his tangle with the grim reaper. There are not any more details provided, nevertheless. Instead, Nintendo’s VS Twitter account in the united kingdom simply published a tweet on the subject stating “Luigi is okay. ”
Besides the destiny of Luigi being confirmed, the Belmonts will be joined by Donkey Kong Country‘s King K. Rool when Super Smash Bros.. It is going to also be available in an excellent limited edition bundle featuring a GameCube controller and adapter at Europe.
Luigi is fine
