Nintendo Gave Terminally-Ill Cancer Patient a Chance to Play the Unreleased Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Nintendo just made someone's dream come true!

Video-games are always fun. Along with being a temporary respite from reality, it lets you be part of a larger game - with multiple players, and RPGs. And for some, games often become one of the most common ways to spend their time.

Nintendo, a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company headquartered in Kyoto, and considered almost a divine (replaced synonym with god-like) company by gamers, in mid-September announced an Ultimate version of the popular game, Super Smash Bros. While this had the gaming community rejoicing, it also had a particular person scared that he wouldn't get to see his favorite game being released.

Chris Taylor, known more commonly on the Internet as Spooky Woobler, is a 21-year-old gamer, and a three-time cancer survivor. After finding out he's terminal, he decided to stop his treatment in July this year.

So when the company announced the release date as December, Taylor was unsure whether he'd get to play the new version of his favorite game.

And Nintendo made this wish into reality!

Nintendo sent two representatives to his house with a copy of the E3 demo of Smash Ultimate and a Nintendo Switch and he got to play it for a few hours.

Taylor shared photos from the event.

And a message on Reddit about the experience, and spreading awareness about his type of cancer.
