Were already 2 weeks into June, yet Nintendo still didn't say anything about releasing the ARMS character for the second Fighters Pass pack.

Maybe it could be delayed to July?

Update: It's been confirmed the ARMS fighter will be revealed this Monday.


I'm predicting it's either gonna be 4 male alternate costumes with 4 female costumes or it's gonna be 8 selected characters as costumes (similar to Bowser Jr., be it 4 males and 4 females).

Min Min is joining Ultimate next Monday


With that, it now marks the 2nd time a female DLC fighter joined Smash, following on the heels of Bayonetta, who debuted back in Smash for 3DS and Wii U in 2016.

Could this mean we may get more female DLC fighters in the future like Tifa Lockeart from Final Fantasy VII Remake and 2B from NieR Automata?

Also, we are FINALLY getting the Fighters Pass 1 amiibo, beginning with the Hero and Joker. They are slated to launch fall 2020.

Min Min is also technically the first Smash fighter (of a series that only has one representative) to be put in Smash but not be the specific "face" or supposed main hero of their franchise. Like supposedly "everyone's a protagonist" but I have a feeling the idea was to have Spring Man more the top most well known and well loved character originally but people gravitated towards other heroes, even the developers and associates who work on the game. Since Min Min is technically the overall "fan favorite" in addition to being the producer's favorite so all the more reason to give her the push.

I could see another female DLC fighter being announced. Possibly Shantae as she's a popular pick with plenty of Nintendo association (having debuted on the Game Boy Color) but it's not going ot be Tifa OR 2B (I don't even know who 9B is think you made an error there Asa) in that slot. Considering all the hassle it took just to get Cloud back in with only two measly tracks and no assist trophies with very few stickers pretty clear we aren't going to get another FF represenative in smash especially since I'm sure they want to pick from either very Nintendo based franchises or more specific third party franchises. However it still has to either be one the people want to see, Sakurai is an actual fan of or someone at Nintendo wants to work with none of which really fits 2B so yeah don't expect that one to be picked.

Well Tifa is a fan-favorite among FF fans and I thought FFVII could've used more lore in Ultimate (spirit board, spirits, new stage, and new tracks) but maybe Square Enix still won't allow it? (The franchise in Smash only has 2 tracks, 2 trophies and 2 spirits, all in the form of Cloud). Also there were talks about more FF characters being added in Smash for 3DS and Wii U but Sakurai thought it was too difficult to think of any character that wasn't Cloud.

I dunno if Shantae will ever get in.

Also, Sakuari did state he played NiER Automata before and he really liked it. So maybe we could still expect 2B to get in.

After Min Min, I think we might still get new characters that weren't represent as spirits like Joker, Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, and Byleth. We might also still get new characters from Nintendo based franchises or more specific third party franchises (Soulcalibur anyone?)

I'm predicting the second Fighters Pass Vol. 2 DLC character will be released sometime in fall 2020, while the final 4 packs will be released by 2021.
