    Min Min was my character so that's who I'm gonna hope for, though she doesn't strike me as likely

    If it's not Spring Man, Ribbon Girl or the annoying champion guy seem like the obvious pulls? Ribbon Girl would be cool

    Twintelle is the obvious choice

    i would think twintelle, ribbon girl and min min are all popular enough to be viable options

    would be sort of neat if they finally added a new heavy and went with master mummy or max brass

    but i want that goopy

    Popularity wise Twintelle seems like the call but Ribbon Girl is basically the secondary face of the series behind Spring Man

    It is odd to announce it as "a character" from ARMS. Spring Man with Ribbon Girl alts would be the natural choice, so... maybe it will be someone more interesting?

    Lots of good stuff in that Direct, but I think I'm most interested to try... that Ring Fit rhythm thing? Feels weird to say that, but I think it's true. Gotta get my isolation exercise somehow :)

    Yeah, it did. I believe the tracks were different too.

    I hope the Arms character is the clown.

    He was so happy to find a weakness of the western audience.

    in my opinion they should probably add twintelle so that smash finally has A Black Person

    Iirc, there are some Inkling and Villager options. Would be nice to have a character who doesn’t need to dig into variants, though.

    it's like when blizzard's Heroes of the Storm had to invent a new character in order to add a black lady to their game, crossover games expose institutional absences of diversity in a company's visual design

    I can't watch that direct, did they just straight up say "Hey there's going to be an Arms character in Smash" or is that a rumor

    So im at like 74 stars and I dont wanna do Rainbow Ride in SM64 so I started up OoT again and I still love this game

    especially with some of the easy tricks like fucking off and getting bombchus and bombs even tho I don't use em for anything other then getting the last gold skutulla inside the Deku Tree so I never have to go back

    I however *didn't* get the goron bracers cause I forgot they let you push the blocks in the forest temple, so I either learn the forest temple skip to boss or I go and do an annoying time consuming glitch ive done before to get into the shadow temple for the hover boots so I can go all the way over to the desert and get the silver gauntlets

    I did not plan well and now links adventure is a mess to put it lightly

    ARMS is a new Nintendo IP; to me it’s like bringing in Shulk or Inkling. And ARMS lends itself to creating an interesting character, what with the stretchy arm mechanic, the variety of weapons, and the unique skill each character has. There’s a lot that an ARMS character can bring to the table.

    Plus, the game just looks neat; the character designs are very nice, I think.

    ARMS has an advantage that they don't need to schedule meetings and work out IP arrangements with other companies during a pandemic.

    Arms did very good for launching next to Zelda Mario kart and Splatoon 2.

    That said a sequel seems unlikely because they really cant add much to it

    ARMS doesn't have the kind of excitement around it that banjo or fatal fury does, but also, byleth kind of shot the idea that every character is gonna be a super cool pick in the foot, and even if ARMS isn't a beloved franchise, its chracter design and aesthetic is really strong

    arms is a great choice, I'm glad they're doing an arms. it has good music, good visual design, and the mechanics will be interesting to adapt to smash

  • turtleantturtleant Gunpla Dad is the best.Registered User regular
    It's been just long enough (and the games de facto face is an assist trophy) that I think a lot of people had written ARMS off for getting a character

  • GundiGundi Serious Bismuth Registered User regular
    It is weird that ARMS didn't get a character sooner. It is another Nintendo based fighting game, had come out not that long before Ultimate, and you'd think Nintendo would liked to do the cross promotion they usually do. The fact that it didn't get a slot sooner kind of tells me how little Nintendo really ever cared about Arms.
