Sakurai’s presentation on the new Arms character promises an in-depth look that will run roughly 35 minutes. The livestream will kick off at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT, and will air on YouTube and Twitch. And remember: Nintendo says there won’t be any further character reveals “other than a fighter from Arms in this livestream.”
The unnamed Arms fighter is the first of six additional characters coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2. All six characters — plus new stages and music — will be released for Ultimate by Dec. 31, 2021, Sakurai announced during a Nintendo Direct Mini presentation in January. The first Fighters Pass added Joker from Persona 5, Hero from the Dragon Quest series, Banjo and Kazooie, Terry from Fatal Fury/The King of Fighters, and Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses to Ultimate as paid content.
Update: Nintendo revealed that Min Min from Arms (and Vault Boy from Fallout) are on their way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next fighter is Min Min from Arms
- Fallout’s Vault Boy joins Super Smash Bros. as a Mii Fighter
