Smash Ultimate “leak” reveals ARMS DLC fighter – but is it real?

A new Smash Ultimate ARMS leak has surfaced showing what appears to be Min Min’s victory screen, but people are unsure about its legitimacy.

The screen, which shows off Min Min posing in victory in Ultimate, is quite similar to the same pose used in ARMS.

In the photo, the character extends her foot in a kicking motion over an explosive red and white background. Meanwhile, the text reads “Min Min” and a new ARMS icon is on display in the left hand side.

The leaked image first appeared on 4chan and has been circulating from there, but many are doubting its legitimacy.

“Fake, picture is not blurry,” one anonymous poster joked, referencing how so many faked leaks are blurry images.

Is Min Min really coming to Smash?

“The pose is mirrored, which means he either has access to the model or he’s very, very good with modeling software/image modification,” another chimed in.

One part of the leak that may put its legitimacy in doubt is the font used for “Min Min” looks a little too thin, especially when compared to the rest of the cast’s victory screens.

Nonetheless, it’s still possible that Min Min will be coming to Smash, especially considering how a popular theory is that the ARMS fighter will be treated like Bowser JR with its alternate costumes counting as different fighters.

Spring Man could be the first Assist Trophy to become a fighter.

The theory suggests that Spring Man will be the standard base fighters, but other members of the ARMS cast will be available by switching his colors. Of course, Spring Man is already an Assist Trophy, so having him graduate to fully playable character would be interesting to say the least.

As for when the fighter will be revealed, many believe it will be on June 16, to mark the three-year anniversary of ARMS’ release on Nintendo Switch.

Until then, keep your eyes peeled as June is the month we will finally be getting the first character in Fighters Pass Volume 2, with five more still to come.


Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
