What’s going on everybody, Wav3yGawd here! Nintendo had a mini Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announcement this morning at 10 am EST/7 am PT where they introduced the first character in the second Fighter Pack! They announced the fighter would be from the Nintendo title “ARMS” in the last Nintendo Direct but didn’t say which character. Many people speculated it would be the protagonist “Spring Man”, however this morning during the presentation it was announced that the fighter would be Min Min!
Min Min is one of the characters from ARMS and it was a surprise for many. When the games creator Masahiro Sakurai revealed why we got her and not the protagonist the answer was simple, the ARMS producer wanted Min Min in Smash so that’s what we got. Sakurai also stated that he wanted Min Min but was also thinking about Ninjara! Similar to the Joker, Terry Bogard and Banjo & Kazooie reveals, Sakurai presented a demo of the newest character showing off her skill set as well as the new stage we will be getting as well called “Spring Stadium”. The DLC will also come with 18 songs from the ARMS game which will be great to listen to on the go! The whole DLC has the price of $5.99, but if you have the second Fighter Pack then you should already have the character when she drops next week on June 29th! On that date, new Mii skins will be available as well! These skins include:
Ninjara (Brawler) - ARMS
Heihachi (Brawler) - Tekken
Callie and Marrie (Brawler) - Splatoon
Vault Boy (Gunner) - Fallout
It’s safe to say that Nintendo showed no love to the Swordfighter users this time around. New amiibos are coming our way later this year in the fall for Joker and Hero! Sakurai also mentioned a bit about Spirits mode and new things that will be added there as well! You can watch the whole presentation below (run time of 35 minutes) and let us know what you think! Until next time y’all, PEACE!
