A well-known Smash Ultimate leaker with a history of accurate information has resurfaced to share new details on the upcoming ARMS fighter and potentially some future DLC down the line.

Vergeben, a leaker who had information about multiple Smash Ultimate characters before they’d been revealed including several DLC fighters has been relatively quiet about the ARMS content until now.

Sabi, a fellow leaker, posted on their discord about new details they’d heard from Vergeben. Additionally, Vergeben’s DMs made their way onto 4chan and contain similar info to what Sabi had discussed on Discord.

The main take away is that, like some rumors have suggested, the upcoming ARMS fighter will be similar to that of Bowser JR and Hero in that the alternate costumes count as different fighters.

“My main source has finally started to get a little more chatty again,” the leaked DMS read. “So I sent some things their way to look into.”

Hero is multiple fighters in one.

According to Vergeben, the ARMS fighter will consist of Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, and Min Min. There may even be other ARMS skins, though he’s unsure and is still looking into it.

The multiple fighter rumor isn’t exactly new, as it did emerge on 4chan earlier, but hearing it come from Veregen definitely adds some credibility.

This is good news for anyone wanting more ARMS characters than just the one, though it’s unlikely they will have unique move sets.

Sabi posted about Vergeben’s new info on Discord.

Vergeben also explained how Mario Kart 9’s release got pushed back because of ongoing world events, a new 2D Metroid game will be revealed soon as well as Dynasty Warriors 10.

He also seemed to back up an earlier claim made by fellow leaker Tanmsut that a sequel to The World Ends With You game will be announced soon.

Additionally, he claimed that Tekken’s Heihachi will be a guest character in “something” soon, but didn’t elaborate. Is it possible that Smash could be getting yet another fighting game superstar to battle with Ryu, Ken, and Terry Bogard as part of Fighters Pass Volume 2?

There’s still five characters to come after the ARMS DLC.

While this is all interesting news, Sabi did warn that they’re not sure Vergeben is correct about most of the details.

Speaking with Dexerto, Sabi claimed that the leaker “keeps to DMs about things he’s not entirely sure of, sometimes.”

Only time will tell if this new information ends up being accurate, but as far as ARMS goes, we won’t have much longer to wait as the reveal and release is scheduled for some time in June. The rumored date is June 16 – the three-year anniversary of ARMS’ launch on Switch.


Animal Crossing player’s crazy Smash Ultimate tournament venue goes viral

An Animal Crossing New Horizons player designed a brilliant Smash Ultimate tournament venue in-game, and many fans are absolutely loving it.

The global health crisis really hurt LAN events for Smash Ultimate and other fighting games in 2020. Many venues that thrived off hosting events suffered immensely, and while players have been missing in-person competitions, that didn’t stop one player from recreating a tournament venue within Animal Crossing.

Animal Crossing is chock full of materials and objects that work well to design a fighting game venue, and Redditor ‘timshady11’ made good use of them for their creation.

Anyone who has ever been to a weekly tournament at a bar, restaurant or arcade is familiar with the general layout. You have the front desk for signups and registration, numerous setups for people to compete and a spot designated for streaming high-profile matchups.

The Smash scene got a bit beaten up.

In this case, timshady11 included all of those things and then some. As you can see in the video, there is a desk area by the entrance with a laptop and Smash Ultimate book to keep track of tournament entrees.

Moving on from there, the venue has all sorts of desks with two chairs, a monitor and a Nintendo Switch. In total, we count six of these non-featured setups, which is a respectable number for a weekly event.

The venue also has numerous arcade cabinets, vending machines, booths, couches, and of course, a stream setup. That section is pretty well-made with cameras, a computer, and three couches in the vicinity for observers.

Users on Reddit were certainty impressed with the creation. “Awesome! The aesthetic is cozy and cool, really like the vibe overall,” one complimented.

“This is amazing! It made me really nostalgic for IRL tournaments tho,” another remarked with a frowny face emoji.

If you want to visit the island for yourself, timshady11 revealed it as: DA-3428-2657-9989.

While Smash tournaments have been forced to move online, hopefully, players will get the opportunity to return to their venues in the foreseeable future and duke it out in person once again. Until then, at least there’s always the Animal Crossing island to tide us over.
