    We knew that ARMS would be getting representation in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but the identity of the character was a secret, until today. Sakurai has shown us the latest character we'll be seeing added to the game's DLC roster. He and the development team are working from home, so we get to see a slightly different presentation video than usual, where we learn that Min Min is headed to Smash. Her limbs are stretchy, just like in Arms, giving the character a lot of range, and the ability to use both the left and right arms for attacks. 18 tracks from Arms will also be added to Ultimate's impressive song list. The character and state will launch on June 29th, for $5.99, or included as part of the Fighters Pass Vol 2. More paid DLC Mii costumes are also coming to the game, where Arms's Ninjara will get representation alongside Heihachi from Tekken, Callie and Marie from Splatoon, and also Fallout's Vault Boy. The amiibo line will also continue, with both Persona 5's Joker and Dragon Quest's Hero launching later this fall.

    Well, we got Vault Boy in Smash and we got to see a little of Sakurai's house, so that was cool.

    ...

    Can't exactly say I'm excited for another zoner, but at least her counter-play seems pretty straightforward. I'll keep waiting for a character I'm at least moderately interested in before grabbing fighters pass 2.

    I hear nobody talking about Min-Min being in Smash, and all people are talking about is Vault Boy. ...Sure?
    Tbh I don't really care about Fallout, I care more so about Min-Min. During the stream, she looked pretty damn overpowered at times!

    She looks fun for sure, but for me at least it was just shocking to see Fallout get any kind of representation, even in a Mii Gunner costume

    The best part was the "Pauline isn't that hard" section

    Sakurai owned the audience very hard with that.

    lets be honest, arms wasnt a very sucefull game, it was fun for like 20 mins and them you kinda passed it along and never played it again, no one was really exited to get an arms rep and even now its like "meh" ok its a first party rep so we can acept it but no one cared too much at all.

    game actually had a lot of depth with how you approached different matchups by changing your arms configuration, IMO people just didnt give the game enough of a chance

    Meh, at best it has as much depth as Pokken Tournament, and that's coming from someone who did buy it but later traded it in. Mario Tennis Aces seems to scratch that same "back and forth" itch for me while still managing to retain entertainment value some 30-40 hours in.

    You mean like Cloud? Lol.

    you can say that of every game specialy any fighting game, even bad ones, if you give them enough time you learn more, most people just didnt like the way it played me included.

    Fallout Shelter is on switch so there is a fallout game on switch(not a good one but there is one lol), maybe they are doing this becuase they plan on porting like fallout 3 or new vegas or whatever to switch in the future who knows, bethesda has more Doom games and wolfenstein games on switch and nintendo consoles in general than fallout, it would have made more sence putting doom guy or wolfenstein guy as a gunner but who knows maybe its a preview to releasing fallout 3 /new vegas port on switch someday.

    while FF started on nintendo consoles, cloud itself also only appeared in kingdom hearts chain of memorys on the gba, so kinda like vault boy is a character that only appeared on a spin off game on a nintendo console, of course now we have the ff7 port on switch lol.
