No one wants to wake up to news like this
Fans of all things Nintendo’s Mario Bros. were gasping in horror on Thursday morning as the video gaming company released a video depicting the death for Luigi. The apparent death of Mario’s fraternal twin brother occurred during Nintendo Direct, which is basically an online presentation of new trailers. In a trailer for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, viewers had watched Luigi nervously walk into Dracula’s castle. Shortly after, a scythe-wielding Reaper cuts Luigi in two. As angry fans took to social media to express their displeasure, Nintendo made sure to calm their fears a bit by saying on Twitter tat “Luigi is okay.”
