Who’s hungry for some noodles? Because Min Min’s ready to serve a delectable bowl of butt-whooping in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! The first character of the gamer’s second Character Pass, this female fighter represents Switch’s ARMS fighting game, stretching and punching away with her Chinese-themed ARMS equipment. Hailing from the Mintendo Noodle House, Min Min was showed off in a special presentation courtesy of game director Masahiro Sakurai; as opposed to previous demonstrations, this footage was recorded directly from Sakurai’s home thanks to the COVID-19 crisis. (Sadly, his beloved cat was nowhere to be seen.)
You can check out both Min Min’s trailer and Sakurai’s full presentation below:
Sweet digs, eh? As always, Sakurai delivers a comprehensive breakdown on the character’s moveset — isn’t her range insane? (Get this: she can use Smash Attacks in the air!) Like every DLC character before her, Min Min arrives her own stage (Spring Stadium — Spring Man’s home turf; poor guy!), a veritable playlist of music (18 ARMs tracks, including two remixes), and five additional Mii costumes: Ninjara (ARMS), Heihachi (Tekken), Callie and Marrie (Splatoon), and even Vault Boy of Fallout fame.
As mentioned in the presentation, Sakurai also announced that amiibo figures for the DLC cast will finally arrive beginning this fall, with Persona 5‘s Joker and Dragon Quest XI‘s Hero; however, he cautioned that they don’t how much they’ll produce, so get those pre-orders ready!
By the way, not only was Min Min added to the game’s famous mural, but the ARMS development team whipped up a special illustration for Min Min’s Smash debut. (Don’t mind the sore loser in the window.)

Min Min, her stage/music assemble, and the new Mii costumes will arrive June 29th — the character costs $5.99, but the Mii Costumes are worth 75 cents each.
