Some games have a special quality to them that just isn’t matched by any other game on the market. It’s capable of bringing people together in ways that you never thought or imagined would be possible. One such game is Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which managed to get some cops who were called to an incident to join in on a game of Smash.
ComicBook.com has up a feel-good story that actually (and very easily) could have gone a completely different direction. It starts when the cops are called on some guys, presumably for a noise complaint. The cops show up all bundled up and decked out in gear, but things don’t quite go down as you might expect.
Instead of arresting the gentlemen, or turning into some sort of tragic evening news story, the cops realized that the two guys were just having some (presumably loud?) fun with the latest Nintendo Switch exclusive, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The duo were invited to play some four-player Super Smash Bros., with the guys who had the the cops called on them. A 10-second clip was posted up over on the Smash Bros., sub-reddit, where one of the gentlemen says that they’re about to play some Smash. We see the two cops standing in front of the TV with the controllers all decked out in their gear with one of them giving a thumbs up, and the two other guys laughing and getting ready to play.
It’s quite a sight to see, given that it’s rare you get a happy ending to a story that could have gone sideways real quick. We know how some of these calls can end up, so it’s great to see that in the end the cops and the guys that the cops were called on managed to come to an agreement to have some fun and play some games.
Given that the holiday season is basically in full swing at this point, it’s a cheery and good-hearted story that definitely helps put gamers in the festive mood.
The game contains one of the largest rosters in all of fighting game history. Heck, you might even be convinced you’re playing a Smash Bros., version of MUGEN.
In the video with the cops and the guys playing the game, only a handful of characters had been unlocked, so it was likely early goings for the gamers and they only likely starting playing. Possibly that’s why they were causing such a ruckus as they were unlocking characters early on and were excited about who they were going to unlock next?
Either way, the new fighting game from Nintendo is making some huge waves shortly after dropping at the conclusion of this year’s The Game Awards. If you already have a copy just be mindful of your neighbors and avoid making too much noise. But even if your neighbors do call the cops on you, it can’t hurt to offer them up a controller so you guys can play some four-player Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
