Min Min Stretches the Boundaries of Gameplay in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

With Min Min being announced as the first fighter of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass 2, director Masahiro Sakurai also discussed how Min Min will play, considering the different genre of fighting game ARMS is. It turns out Min Min will bring a lot of her home game’s gameplay into Smash Bros. as well.

While the A button will perform a basic attack, it’s a bit different for Min Min, as holding A will extend her left arm instead. Her side Smash Attack will extend the arms even further. Meanwhile, short-pressing A will make her use kicks instead. But what about her special moves? It turns out that her normal and side specials will instead shoot out her right arm instead. Both of Min Min’s arms can slightly bend like they could in ARMS.

Min Min’s Down Special can be used to change her right arm’s ARM between the dragon, the Ram Ram, and Megawatt. The Ram Ram is low damage but goes in a wide arc, while the Megawatt is slow but can defeat enemies easily. The Dragon is rather standard, but can shoot lasers from its mouths.

Finally, Min Min’s up special has her jump up really high with some invincibility to escape enemy attacks. When used in the air, Min Min sends out her arm to grab the ledge like how Byleth extends the Sword of the Creator.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available for Nintendo Switch. Min Min releases on June 29, 2020.
