Chris Taylor, also known as SpookyWoobler on Twitter, has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The doctors told him that he only has a few months left to live. Last week, he expressed fear on Twitter that he won’t be able to fight the cancer long enough to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate when it releases. A little over a week later, after the gaming community spread the word of his wish to play the game, Chris confirmed on Twitter that “two Nintendo reps came down with the E3 demo of Smash Ultimate”, and he was able to “play it for 3 hours”. A local friend, his brother, and his mother were there to play with him. His tweets can be seen down below. We wish Chris and his family all the best!
December is a long way away for someone who is already bedridden…

I found out they were coming around Tuesday and couldn't say cause even a switch with a demo on it is a high value target to be stolen, same for as why i didn't get to keep the demo (though i absolutely expected that)
Seriously though, thank you all so much, you all did this
