Not to worry; Luigi didn’t really die during the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct

I guess having your soul ripped from you doesn’t count as being dead

luigi is dead

Poor Luigi, I knew him well

During today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, we saw Luigi of the Mario Bros, have a brush in with death. But not just with death, but the character that personifies death; the Grim Reaper. The result was poor unfortunate Luigi having his soul ripped from his body. Yeah, it was bad but let’s not kid ourselves that it wasn’t glorious either. Because it totally was.

And much to the horror and dismay of Nintendo fans everywhere, it appeared that Luigi had died. But I suppose that not even being the victim of a soul ripping doesn’t count as being dead. In fact, Nintendo UK Versus chimed in on Twitter to let everyone know that Luigi was just fine.

So basically, there’s nothing to see here. Everyone’s ok, everything is just fine. Funny how that works, isn’t it? Speaking of which, it wasn’t time we’ve seen a beloved Nintendo character seemingly met their demise. In fact, wasn’t Mario impaled through the chest by Ridley during Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct?

is mario also dead

We can’t forget Mario’s apparent death during E3 2018 either

Rest assured, both of Nintendo’s brotherly duo are just fine. I mean, they are just video game characters who fall in bits, get eaten alive, or much worse. It’s basically their job. We’ll see them ready to go at it, once Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gets released this December 7th, 2018.
