Today’s Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate opened with a rather dramatic sequence, in which Luigi immediately died after being struck by the Grim Reaper’s scythe from Castlevania. Anyone who watched the Direct witnessed Luigi’s soul escaping from his defenseless body. Despite this seemingly worrisome set of events, Nintendo has confirmed that Luigi is miraculously still alive and well.
Luigi is okay
