Prominent Smash Ultimate leaker shares new info on ARMS DLC fighter

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.


How to get physical Smash Ultimate fighter invitations with My Nintendo

Smash Ultimate fans wanting to send an iconic invitation to a friend or family member can now get their chance as physical envelopes can now be shipped through My Nintendo.

A common motif in Smash is characters receiving an “invitation” with the game’s logo to indicate they had been chosen to join the star-studded fighting game.

This has been seen in many DLC fighter announcements such as Terry Bogard’s and Min Min’s trailers where multiple characters fight over the invitation with whoever receives it being added to the roster.

As such, the invitations have become an iconic piece of Smash and video game history, which is saying a lot considering they’re just pieces of paper.

The Smash invitation has become a series icon.

Be that as it may, fans can now earn these invitations through My Nintendo for 400 Platinum Points. Each set contains three white, green and blue cards, envelopes and stickers with the Smash logo.

In order to get the invitations, you’ll have to follow these steps:

1) Sign in to your Nintendo Account.
2) Redeem your Platinum Points for the item you’d like to get. You will receive a promo code.
3) Select “Access Now” to visit
4) Select “Add to cart.”
5) Enter the code that you received in the pop-up.
6) Complete your transaction and your item will be shipped to you!

The cards come in white, blue and green.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a limited-time item so be sure to grab it while you can. Interestingly, the reward code will expire on March 8, 2021.

The expiry is note-worthy as it could be yet another sign pointing towards the release of DLC fighter 9. As Dexerto has previously reported, there are plenty of indicators so far suggesting that the next character will be released in March.

The next wave of amiibo consisting of Byletyh, Terry and Banjo is scheduled for March and in the past, all amiibo releases have coincided with a DLC fighter reveal.

March is also when the Tales Of Festival will begin, and signs have pointed to a Tales of Symphonia representative potentially being the next DLC fighter, so this is just one other thing to keep in mind.

In any case, be sure to pick up your own Smash invitations so you can invite whoever you want to the game while you still can.
