Smash Brothers for Nintendo Switch (and others)

    Well, we still don't know if that applies to characters who are already spirits.

    Let me guess. It's Spring Man despite the fact he's an Assist Trophy which would only add to the shock value (and open up Waluigi's chances in the process); or it's really a random pick of the cast, which would still be part of the same shock value (thus screwing Waluigi).

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    I'm kind of thinking they will pull of a "Piranha Plant" and pick a semi-random cast member, like Min Min.

    Spring Man is kind of vanilla anyway.

    There's no reason to think it would when it didn't apply to trophies, though.
    To put it another way, assuming it is someone from ARMS 1 and not a tie-in to an ARMS 2 (which is what I think, regardless of the spirit situation), do you really think they'd go "aw dang, we made spring man an assist trophy and we have all the other popular characters as spirits! time to go with tertiary characters we didnt make spirits of almost 2 years ago! There is simply no other option!!"
    At least with assists we haven't had a DLC promotion and he's said a couple times now when they show up it obviously means they aren't playable; I think they could go against that in Wave 2, but nevertheless I understand.
    Spirits dont have that. They're jpeg replacements for Trophies because they take less time. They're definitely equivalent.

    Always wanted an ARMS rep so I’m happy with this. Hopefully Twintelle is the character though I’m kind of expecting Min Min.

    Also totally expecting one of the starters or Urshifu to be one of the 6

    There was also that one time where the Cuphead spirit had a different fighter depending on if you downloaded the Mii Costume DLC.
    They could do that for someone like Min Min for example.

    I don't see an ARMS 2, myself, because it hasn't been that long ago since the original ARMS.
    The difference between that an Splatoon would be that Splatoon was a popular game debuted on an unpopular console, thus warranting a sequel.

    It's been 3 years and it'll probably be 4 by the time it theoretically comes out (well...maybe 5 depending on how covid goes). I think that's been long enough for a bigger, better sequel to take the stage

    They said this fighter will be announced and released in June. What usually goes on in June? Game announcements (even though E3 got canceled this year)! What better way than to announce and promote a theoretical ARMS 2 with a new fighter representing said game/series!

    I hope a Gen 8 Pokemon is part of the pass. We've never had a Pokemon newcomer as DLC - only a veteran.

    I would, legitimately, be shocked if there's not a Pokemon on this pass.

    Obstagoon would be good because it would essentially bring a "rock star" into Smash, given its resemblance to the band Kiss.
  12. Blaze Master X

    Blaze Master X Gigantamax Toxtricity

    That would be awesome if Toxtricity would be the Gen 8 Pokemon rep.

    Actually I’d love to see Urshifu be the rep. It’d help promote the Expansion Pass and we could have both forms as alts for each other.
  14. AuraChannelerChris

    AuraChannelerChris "Magikazam!"

    Unless Urshifu can change styles, I don't see it becoming a rep. It'd be weird that the game only gives you one option, but in Smash it can change styles.

    Blaze Master X Gigantamax Toxtricity

    Yep, that would be awesome as well. I think it could change styles, since both forms have different styles.

    I never played ARMS so I'm not excited, but I'm still glad another Nintendo franchise is getting a character in. Instead of shitty Fire Emblem hogging yet another slot :rolleyes:

    If it weren't for Smash FE wouldn't even have made it out of Japan.

    So we now know the first fighter from Fighter Pass 2 is going to be an ARMS character. Spring Man is a bit dicey since he is currently an AT but Min Min, Ribbon Girl, Ninjara and Twintelle only exists as base game Spirits. Given the opening character is not the “shock value” akin to Joker it is curious how the rest of the Pass would be like (particularly if we get another reveal during the “E3” Direct).

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    I'm not going to say it's impossible, but personally, I doubt the next fighter will be a character debuting in ARMS 2.

    I also got the vibe that they were teasing by showing the roster, as if, "which character is coming in" (unless they are throwing a curveball).

    A Fighter from another Fighting game?

    Sorry... that's a pass for me
