Well, this was a surprise. The first contender in Fighters Pass 2 will come from ARMS.
While probably not the explosive beginning many were expecting, the Nintendo Direct Mini has confirmed that the first fighter will be announced and released in June.
We don’t know which fighter will be coming to Smash – the safe money is on Spring Man or Ribbon Girl – though we hope to see Lola Pop or Master Mummy.
There’s also a school of thought it could be an all-new fighter used to announce an ARMS 2. June is around when E3 would have dropped and that is definitely a good time to announce something.
Either way, let the guessing game begin between now and then. This is certainly a bold way to launch Fighter Pass 2 and it may just be a precursor to something much more.
