The internet is in mourning for the famous Mario brothers after a new gaming trailer appeared to show Luigi meeting a tragic end.
Luigi and his brother Mario burst onto the gaming scene in the early 1980s as two plumbers who team up to save Princess Peach from the evil Bowser.
The inseparable pair seems to have met their match after a new Nintendo trailer revealed Luigi meeting his end at the hands of a ghostly Grim Reaper.
After Luigi’s tragic death, famous vampire hunter Simon Belmont avenged him and defeated the reaper.
Later footage showed Luigi, now a ghost, trying to re-enter his corporeal form.
The internet exploded with upset fans taking to social media to mourn for the Italian plumber.
The extreme reaction online has prompted Nintendo to tweet “Luigi is ok” in an attempt to reassure worried fans – suggesting Luigi is ok after all.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate is due for release in December.
