Chris Taylor is a Nintendo fan who has been diagnosed with cancer. He was unsure as to whether or not he would have the opportunity to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before the game launched. Because he was bedridden, he was unable to attend any preview events where the game would have been playable.
Fortunately, a group of fellow Nintendo fans got together and contacted Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Canada to see if Chris could be granted the opportunity to play the game. The Nintendo of Canada team then traveled to his home with the E3 demo and set up the game so that he and a few of his friends could play the game for a few hours.
We also hope that Chris is able to overcome his battle with cancer! If you'd like to show him your support, you can follow his Twitter account.
