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.
