Yeah I hope it is either Ribbon Girl, Min Min, Twintelle or Ninjara so that finally that fan rule gets utterly destroyed.
I too would like this "rule" to be destroyed but I'm keeping my expectations in check since it's possible that the new ARMS fighter is either a new character from a future sequel or an existing character who has no representation in Smash. Either one of these scenarios would keep the "rule" going so until we know who it is, all we can do is wait.

Out of all the ARMS characters, Min Min is the most likely. I see a lot of people hoping for Twintelle, but keep in mind Min Min won the Party Crash Online tournament to choose who fans think is the best character. If it's not Min Min I will be shocked.
I see Min Min being the popular pick for sure. I would like her or Twintelle or Dr. Coyle.

As for guys saying each fighter is different so they can't be alts, Remember only Ribbon Girl could double jump in ARMS but eveyrone will be able to here. Making a Hero/Bowser Jr style for ARMS is not unlikely at all. The 4 easy CHoices are Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Min Min, and Ninjara. harder to fight 4 others that share body and arm punching types(sadly that rules out Twintelle :( )

As for moves. Everyone double jumps so thats Ribbon Girls thing. I can See the B move being a Hold move to hold your 1 arm while stylle having some limited A Moves like Min Min, maybe your dash attack reflects some projectiles like Spring Man too.

Plus Nintendo is the one choosing characters this time around(as officially stated) so why wouldn't they choose the most popular ARMS character Min Min.

Not what I would call a positive opening for the fighter pass if it's a character nobody knows and just meant to advertise for a game sequel nobody played yet. No, it's gonna be someone we already know I'm pretty sure.
Min Min is the one with the highest chances(as she is the top popular character in ARMS). Twintelle and Ninjara is a close second and Ribbon Girl after.

The whole ”no spirit or AT promotions” have a strong chance of getting destroyed as all the major ARMS candidates are spirits in Smash and I can’t see it being any other than one (or more if it’s a Hero-like thing) of them (so Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Min Min, Ninjara or Twintelle). Unless they throw us a curveball, this would open up discussion for any other promotions as well (Shantae please).

If they plan on releasing every 3 months like with the first fighter pass they're on track to do so until December 2021... I'm wondering how the schedule is affected with the whole Corona business. Wasn't there an article that said it was?
I'm sure Ms. Corona is going to delay Pass 2 by a year or a year and half.

Nothing on Seven Sirens in either the Indie Showcase or the Mini Direct? What's going on? Is WayForward gonna shadow release it or something?

You know what if Springman or Ribbon Girl get in, it absolutely would heighten Shantae's chances since she was revealed in the same direct in November.
The following characters would heighten Shantae's chances: Springman, Ribbon Girl, Twintelle, Min Min or Ninjara.

So long as ONE of these characters becomes the DLC then Shantae not only is more likely but I will ask WayForward themselves upfront on that day this: "Now that Spirits being deconfirmed rule is destroyed you have now the opportunity to calm the hype of Shantae for Smash DLC. If you do not reply to this message saying otherwise then we can take it as confirmation that Shantae is in this fighters pass."

They literally have no choice at this point. If they do not say anything it is the same as a confirmation but if Shantae isn't in the pass and they didn't say so then it would affect our trust in the company.

I will post the question when one of the 5 ARMS fighters is confirmed DLC this June(or whenever they announce the actual character).

due to an NDA they could just say no and she is still in. it would be nice if they can just say without anyone asking that shes not in.

I know how you feel, but thatd be rude. It'd be asking someone who's upheld their honor as a secretkeeper to let loose a secret they'e promised to keep. Just....let go of our desires and be patient.

Well, May 28 is the now the date we been waiting for.

Also, its almost as close to the ARMS reveal coming in June. Not to STRETCH it out for a theory, but some food to think about

I cant help but think t hey waited for the Nintendo direct, given its a multiplat maybe they couldnt have it be revealed in a Nintendo only event?

Also, time to plan for that super quick limited run online pre order for the collector's editon of the physical game when they announce it.

Corona virus probably delaying the development of the game.

Do you think this Shantae reveal was meant to be in the Nintendo Direct but it was cut into a Mini due to COVID and it and other stuff had to be cut?
No. A Arms rep was intended to be Pass 2's first fighter. I expect Shantae to be one of the planned E3 reveals if she's in. Though we might have to wait longer than June because of you know what.

New trailer for Shantae posted!


RELEASE DATE MAY 28TH ON PC AND CONSOLE!!!!!!
About freaking time. Yep, a E3 Shantae Smash reveal could happen.

It might be a stretch, but that ARMS announcement, if that date is still kept, would be around when E3 would be, and we DID get 2 fighters revealed at lasts years...
