Yesterday, during the latest video presentation for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Masahiro Sakurai revealed the latest DLC fighter: Min Min, from ARMS. She will be added to the game next week, on June 29th (North America) / June 30th (Europe, Japan), alongside the latest Software update (Ver. 8.0.0).
If you missed the presentation, no problem: you can find the full recording in the YouTube playlist below, alongside the reveal trailer for Min Min, and the preview video for the 6th set of Mii Fighter costumes:
Next, here’s details about what was revealed during the presentation:
Min Min is the 81st video game character included as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with a roster representing one of the largest crossovers of video game characters in history. From her humble beginnings as a ramen-loving employee at the Mintendo Noodle House, to her knockout performance as a champion contender in the ARMS Grand Prix, it’s no stretch to say Min Min has made a huge name for herself. As a one-of-a-kind fighter, it’s only natural for Min Min’s fighting style in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to be equally unique. Each of her extendable ARMS – the Ramram, the Megawatt and her laser-firing Dragon ARM – can be controlled individually and used to access a diverse range of tools.
Min Min’s accompanying stage, Spring Stadium, features a variety of interactive elements ARMS players will instantly recognize, including the ability to damage opponents when making contact with them after using a jumping platform. Foes will also bounce off the striking ceiling arches when they’re launched. The adorable ARMS drones will also make an appearance to deliver items that aid in battle, but make sure to approach them with caution when freeing boxes to claim their rewards!
In addition to this new fighter update, new Mii Fighter costumes, including Ninjara from ARMS, Heihachi, Callie & Marie from the Splatoon series and Vault Boy, will also be available as separate purchases on June 29.
Finally, two fighters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have new amiibo figures available for purchase at select retailers at a later date: Joker, the masked phantom thief, and Hero, the slime-slaying Luminary.
Finally, here’s some pictures and artworks:
