There is definitive proof: Smash brings people together.

Jovante M. Williams and his friends were doing what most gamers would have enjoyed over the weekend: a friendly night of Super Smash Bros. Nothing wrong with that, except for one small problem: the neighbours thought they were being a little too loud, and so they called the police.

As Yahoo Lifestyle reported, the St. Paul Police diligently responded by sending a couple of officers over to the apartment. And upon arriving at the scene - and finding nothing disturbing - they asked the gamers what was going on.

"'I’m like, ‘Y’all wanna play Smash?!’ And two of them literally raised their hand and walked up," Williams reportedly told Yahoo. "They’re like, ‘How do you jump?’ They were acting; one of them was playing Pikachu!” he added.

I can't quite make out whether this is Smash Bros Ultimate or Smash on the Wii, although seeing some of the controllers I'm guessing it's probably Ultimate on the Switch. Regardless, it's more proof that Smash is wholesome as apple pie, and the power of games to transcend all sorts of barriers.


    It's really refreshing to have a "Cops visit gamer's house" story where no one gets shot, has been murdered or has beaten another member of family.

      Sadly, it's most likely because the cops themselves weren't Caucasian.

      Still, a good mood story regardless :)

        Cops are cops. No need to bring race in to it. None. Like, come on. Don't be racist.

          I'm not racist, I'm just pointing out the horrible trend in America where when there's a call that involves black people and white cops tun up, it usually ends with dead black people. :/

          Race is absolutely relevant in this type of situation. You’d have to be blind not to see that

    That's just fantastic :)

      Def agree. Next door be like 'The cops went there, and now its worse. WHY!!!!' lol
