Nintendo Just Gave This Guy the Surprise of His Lifetime, Days Before He Passed Away

By Pippa Raga

Three-time cancer survivor Chris Taylor decided not to pursue treatment when the illness reared its ugly head a fourth time around. However, he feared that one of his biggest dreams would remain unfulfilled, as he might not live to see Nintendo's upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in December.

He began to tweet to his 12K followers earlier this month, writing "I am a little worried that Smash'll be out of reach for my lifespan though and that mega sucks if I'm being real with y'all." Though the message only got two retweets and 22 likes at the moment, one clairvoyant user predicted "They gonna find a way to get it for you.. I feel it."

And they did. The next day, Chris took to Twitter again, this time posting, "I'm really scared I won't be able to play Ultimate, December is a long way away for someone who is already bedridden..." and the universe heard his pleas.
