Nintendo announced the latest fighter to join the gigantic cast of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Switch: Min Min from Arms. She’s a character best known for having stretchy noodles instead of arms, and will be available as DLC starting on 29th June 2020.
Director Masahiro Sakurai made the announcement in a video filmed in his home, as the entirety of the Smash team is currently working remotely. Sakurai said that Min Min was chosen because Arms director Kosuke Yabuki said, “I want Min-Min.” He also noted that the character was particularly difficult to integrate into the world of Ultimate, but he believes “we were able to create a fighter with an extraordinary fighting style.”
This is the first new fighter to join Ultimate since Byleth, star of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Along with the character, the latest DLC also adds a new fighting stadium from Arms, as well as 18 tracks from the game’s incredible soundtrack. Additionally, Sakurai revealed two new Amiibo figures that are in the works: Joker from Persona 5 and DQXI’s hero. Both will be available later this year.
