MIN MIN FROM ARMS DISHES OUT SPICY PUNCHES AND KICKS IN SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE
In a video released today, Masahiro Sakurai, the director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, showed off the ARMS character, who will be charging into the arena on 30th June as the game’s newest DLC fighter. Sakurai demonstrated how to truly pack a punch with Min Min and revealed the Spring Stadium stage as well as 18 music tracks from ARMS, all coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch later this month. To view the video in its entirety, visit the Nintendo AU YouTube channel.
All of this new content will be available to players who own Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 or who purchase Challenger Pack 6 separately for AUD$7.80 or NZD$10.20 on Nintendo eShop*. By purchasing Fighters Pass Vol. 2 on Nintendo eShop for AUD$39.00 or NZD$51.00 players will get access to Min Min, along with five more yet-to-be-announced Challenger Packs as they release. Each pack includes one new fighter, one stage and multiple music tracks.
Min Min is the 81st video game character included as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with a roster representing one of the largest crossovers of video game characters in history.
From her humble beginnings as a ramen-loving employee at the Mintendo Noodle House, to her knockout performance as a champion contender in the ARMS Grand Prix, it’s no stretch to say Min Min has made a huge name for herself. As a one-of-a-kind fighter, it’s only natural for Min Min’s fighting style in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to be equally unique. Each of her extendable ARMS – the Ramram, the Megawatt and her laser-firing Dragon ARM – can be controlled individually and used to access a diverse range of tools.
Min Min’s accompanying stage, Spring Stadium, features a variety of interactive elements ARMS players will instantly recognize, including the ability to damage opponents when making contact with them after using a jumping platform. Foes will also bounce off the striking ceiling arches when they’re launched. The adorable ARMS drones will also make an appearance to deliver items that aid in battle, but make sure to approach them with caution when freeing boxes to claim their rewards!
In addition to this new fighter update, new Mii Fighter costumes, Ninjara from ARMS, Heihachi from the Tekken series, Callie & Marie from the Splatoon series and Vault Boy from the Fallout series will also be available as a separate purchase on 30th June.
Finally, two fighters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have new amiibo figures available for purchase at select retailers at a later date: Joker, the masked phantom thief, and Hero, the slime-slaying Luminary.
Also available is the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 1 for AUD$32.50 or NZD$42.50 on Nintendo eShop, which grants access to the first five Challenger Packs that were released for the game. Playable fighters Joker, Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, Terry Bogard and Byleth are all available now. For AUD$7.80 or NZD$10.20 players can also purchase these previous packs individually on Nintendo eShop.
