Nintendo Grants Terminally Ill Fan’s Wish To Play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Switch

Nintendo Grants Terminally Ill Fan’s Wish To Play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Switch

Chris Taylor is a super big fan of Smash Bros. and extremely excited to play the newest game in the series (following its debut at E3). Unfortunately, Chris was diagnosed with cancer that now (after beating it twice before) has become terminal. Chris was worried that he may not be around long enough to play Smash Ultimate.

Taylor has tweeted about this wish before, which gained some attention, which then set off a chain reaction across gaming subreddits driving attention to his wish.

Enter Nintendo with a fan service like none other.  The gaming giant heard Chris and answered with one heck of a visit.  They expedited out a demo build of the game to Chris so that he could play the game with his friends and family.  The lot got to spend some time testing out the game and taking tons of pictures.
Taylor described in his tweets how it hurt him to see all these trailers and discussions for games he doesn’t think he will be able to play when they come out.

Fortunately, Nintendo was made aware of this, and flew a demo build of the game to him early this morning. Taylor’s friends and family got to play the game for three hours today and let him take a whole bunch of pictures he promises to put up.

 

We wish Chris the best of luck and regardless of the outcome, this must have put a smile on his face.  Good guy Nintendo coming in and doing something this awesome for a fan.
