UPDATE: Apparently the mini-game featured in the movie is from Super Smash Bros. Melee, not Ultimate. We regret the error and somehow blame Bowser, because reasons.
ORIGINAL STORY: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has easily become an audience favorite over the holiday season, making nearly $170 million to date- not to mention one of the most appreciated Spider-Man films of all time. So imagine just how much the Internet would love combining it with another fan favorite, Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Melee.
That’s exactly what a Twitter user by the name of Lythero did, creating a mini-movie that combines one of the bonus games from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a humorous scene where Miles Morales meets Gwen Stacy for the first time at his local school.
In the quick (but funny) meme, which you can see below, the target-breaking “mini-game” is about to begin with a quick “Ready? GO!” But when Miles puts his hand on Gwen’s shoulder, the challenge ends up being complete, and he promptly gets handed reward points. Check it out!
alright internet, you had your fun
