Smash Bros. fans start campaign for terminal cancer patient

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases this December and as every other fighter that is keen for its release prepares, one humble person may miss its debut. Chris Taylor, a fan of the Smash Bros. series is unfortunately a terminal cancer patient and has voiced his concerns about potentially missing the games release.

Taylor has taken to his Twitter account to shed some light on his terrible situation. After he saw the reveal for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate he said "Im really scared i won't be able to play ultimate" and "I know its childish to despair over a video game but smash means a lot to me and when ultimate looks soo good it breaks my heart."

Community members for Super Smash Bros. have picked up Taylors Tweets and have shown their support, tweeting towards Nintendo Canada, Nintendo VS and Nintendo America for Taylor to get exclusive early access to the game before he passes. As this is such a heartfelt innocent story, I personally believe that everyone in the Super Smash Bros. community should get behind Taylors wishes. Lets show our support towards granting him early access to Ultimate by tweeting as many official Nintendo accounts as possible, retelling his story. Let's give back to the community and bring some happiness towards what I could only imagine be some pretty grim thoughts.
