The wait is over. The Smash community finally knows who the next DLC character is. Releasing June 29th, Min Min from ARMS will be coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate!
ARMS is a first-party Nintendo fighting game. Fighters in ARMS use their spring-like arms to attack and grab opponents with each fighter coming with certain different abilities, arm lengths, and gloves.
One of the more popular fighters, Min Min brings many of her same abilities and quirks to Smash. Herr left and right arms function differently, the left her signature Dragon and the right an interchangeable ARMS (Ramram, Megawatt, and Dragon). Her attacks focus on racking up damage from and keeping enemies at a distance. Additionally, most of her tilt attacks are based on her martial arts background, employing kicks and splits.
Although ARMS once held promise as the next major Nintendo franchise, it fell flat due to relatively repetitive gameplay and a limited online community. Min Min in Smash could help revitalize the game.
This post will be updated with first impressions on the character when she comes out next week.
