The time has come. Back in March 2020, Nintendo announced that it would be bringing a Super Smash Bros Ultimate ARMS competitor into the ring as the next fighter. A reveal was set for June 2020, and the company is keeping that promise. On June 22, 2020 at 7am PT/10am ET/4pm CET, the new fighter will be revealed.
As is customary with these events, this Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ARMS presentation will be just over 30 minutes long and feature Masahiro Sakurai, the game’s director, talking about the new fighter and showing them off. As a reminder, due to the current state of affairs and the world, Sakurai has been watching over things remotely. There was even talk of a delay for this character, due to the pandemic.
The identity of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate ARMS fighter will be revealed there. No hints have been provided. However, Min Min was the winner of the ARMS Party Crash Bash and appeared in the second anniversary artwork. However, Spring Man and Ribbon Girl are considered mascot characters for the fighting game. At the moment, Spirits based on Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Min Min, Twintelle, and Ninjara are all in the game.
Nintendo also went out of its way to note that only the ARMS character will be revealed.
There will be no further new fighter reveals other than a fighter from ARMS in this livestream.
