Nintendo Lets Terminally Ill Smash Bros Fan Play The New Game Before Its Release

Twitter user Chris Taylor (@SpookyWoobler) recently had his dreams come true when Nintendo granted him some time with its upcoming new Smash title, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The game isn’t out until later this year, but Nintendo – along with some of the Smash and DMC communities – worked to bring Smash Ultimate to Taylor who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Responding to a thread on Reddit, Taylor wrote: “No words can describe how thankful i am to the smash and DMC communities banding together and helping me.

“I hardly deserve it but you guys did all this and just the pure kindness brings me to tears, thank you so so so so so much.

“If anyone just hearing about this and wants to help me still even though you’ve all gone far and beyond the call, the cancer i have is a semi-rare bone cancer called Osteosarcoma, the doctors i’ve met who work on it here in Toronto are amazing but are completely lacking in funding for research.

“I’ve done 2 different experimental treatments in hopes of finding better ways to treat the cancer, but to give you an idea, the main chemo they use for this is the same they used back in the 1970’s era

“If you want to make sure that we don’t have more people dying of osteo, including young children which its most prevalent in, there is a collective of osteo focused doctors and families who run a non profit at to help fund research for new Medication AND help fund the dying dreams of people like you did mine.

“If you could send some donations their way, that would mean a million to me

“Again thank you so much, i can’t say it enough, thank you all. I hope every single one of you have an amazing day.”

Sharing the news with tweets that went viral, Taylor’s story has warmed the hearts of the internet. Well done to everyone who made this happen!
