Watch The Smash Bros. Ultimate's Arms DLC Stream

Nintendo is airing a 35-minute deep dive look at the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on June 22.


Nintendo is set to reveal the next DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate today. Perennially overworked game director Masahiro Sakurai will host a livestream reveal today, June 22, giving us our first look at the mysterious new fighter. It starts in just a few minutes, and you can watch it through the YouTube embed below. [Update: The stream has revealed that Min Min is Smash's new DLC fighter. She features some unique mechanics, such as the A and B buttons independently operating her left and right arms. She's also able to switch between different ARMS.]

The stream will begin at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET. The broadcast is scheduled to run for approximately 35 minutes and will provide an in-depth look at the new fighter. However, don't get your hopes up for news on any additional DLC characters; in a follow-up tweet, Nintendo reiterated that there will be "no further new fighter reveals" during Monday's stream.

All we currently know about Smash Bros. Ultimate's next DLC fighter is that it will arrive sometime this month and be a character from Arms, the colorful, stretchy-arm fighting game that released shortly after the Switch launched back in 2017. Beyond that, we know nothing about who the fighter will be or how they will play, but Monday's stream should clear all that up.

The Arms character is the first DLC fighter to arrive as part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which costs $30 USD and grants owners access to six more DLC characters for the game (along with accompanying stages, new music tracks, and Spirits) when they release. It looks like that will be the end of the line for add-on content, however; Nintendo said that it has no more Smash DLC planned after the second Fighters Pass.
