    We didn't get a fancy trailer showing off the latest DLC addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster, but we do have confirmation of who the next fighter will be. Keeping it short and to the point, Nintendo announced that "a fighter from ARMS" will be added to the game as part of the Fighters Pass 2. As to which character it is, that's still unknown at this point, but we'll likely learn more closer to the DLC's release, sometime this June.

    Really disappointing that they waste a slot for this.
    A friend of mine bought it at launch, but just played it for 10 hours.
    And now they forcibly promote it again, but it will stay a failed new IP until they fix that slow, cumbersome combat system.

    On the one hand, it makes sense, because ARMS is technically a fighting game, but it's still a Launch-Game-Using-Controller-Gimmicks-That-Will-Be-Forgotten-About-After-The-First-Year type of game.

    Now, maybe if they got Rash from Battletoads or Jago (or one of the more interesting characters) from Killer Instinct, then this would be more hype. I thought Sakurai wanted to "introduce more characters from new worlds?"

    Am I the only one that enjoyed arms? I played the game during their free trials and demos and it's a fun party game with friends and family.
    I know it'd be awesome to have 3rd party characters but why can't Nintendo allow their own characters on their game

    I'd say that it's less that no one wants NIntendo's own characters in their game as opposed to the fact that, if this is gonna be potentially the final Smash game or the last one with this many third party characters, then it's gonna be disappointing if the DLC from here on out is just Nintendo game promotion DLC.

    I played a demo of ARMS about a year ago, wasn't much fun to me. I'll be excited for it if it's a "gimmick character" though.

    I'm sure the character will be well done, considering it's Sakurai and he always does a good job with what he's given, but I'm thinking it was a mistake to have Nintendo choose his DLC fighters for him.

    Springman is a helper in Smash...
    So, Nintendo make a springman a fighter for Smash... Suppose... Who knows...
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Unfortunaly, Nintendo takes desicion.

    What do they have against Waluigi for them not to have added him as a fighter by 2020? :rofl:

    Wait, if they put a mii costume character (and also an assist trophy) AS AN ACTUAL FIGHTER THIS TIME....

    Does that mean that Zero was chosen in one of the slots?

    Nooo Nintendo.....DON'T LIFT MY HOPES UP FOR THAT

    the suspense gonna be LOOOONG

    Well it's going to be the assist trophy one to torment everyone. We all know Waluigi belongs in the game but the fans have been so mean that it's not going to happen.

    Don't get all the hate here.
    I'm pretty happy with this.
    ARMS is totally underrated. It's such a fun game and deserves more attention. Hopefully this leads to that.
