During Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct last week, we saw Luigi kick the bucket, and now fans are speculating that it ties in to the game’s unannounced single-player campaign.
Luigi’s untimely death played out before our very eyes in the last week, but Nintendo has assured fans that the plumber is alive and well, despite his soul being cleaved from his body by the spectre of Castlevania’s Death. But Luigi’s apparent demise has led fans to believe the game’s unannounced single-player mode will see players rescue characters who have had their souls taken.
Twitter user noctulescent (via Eurogamer) has pieced together the pixelated main menu image from the main menu that we saw in the Direct, which appears to read ‘Spirits’ in both the Japanese and English broadcast. Fellow Twitter user LootPots constructed a mock up of the menu as a whole, giving us an idea of what it will look like in-game.
This theory seems to hold water, and not just because of the mode’s name. Earlier this year at E3 2018, during Ridley’s cinematic reveal trailer, both Mario and Mega Man were whisked off and seemingly impaled on Ridley’s tail, while Samus’ fate was left to our imagination.
As pointed out in one of the many Reddit threads on the topic, series lead Masahiro Sakurai has previously indicated that the roster will start significantly smaller than the full 67 that have been revealed so far, with players unlocking additional characters as they play.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming to Nintendo Switch on December 7.
