The world can be a tragic place, but sometimes even the darkest stories can contain a beacon of light. This was the case recently for Chris Taylor, a young man who has been battling cancer for years and was recently given just three to six months to live. Taylor has been looking forward to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but his terminal condition means there's no guarantee he'll live to see its release.

In order to help him achieve his dream of playing the upcoming Nintendo fighter, Taylor's friends took to social media to spread the word, and soon Nintendo caught wind of the campaign. Last Tuesday, Nintendo representatives secretly informed him that they intended to fulfill his wish by bringing a copy of the E3 demo to his house.

The news was kept silent until they arrived (over concerns of the demo potentially being stolen in transport), and soon Chris Taylor was battling it out with friends and family in his living room. You can read his thank you to the Smash community on Reddit.
