During Nintendo's latest mini Direct presentation, it was confirmed the sixth official DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would be from ARMS.

As fun as this new fighting game was when it originally launched in 2017, not everybody got around to playing it. That's why Nintendo is offering Switch Online members a free trial of the game from now until 6th April.

This should give any newcomers enough time to familiarise themselves with the quirky cast of characters. North American players can also participate in an Online Open on 4th April. It's free to enter, and the top eight players will receive 2500 Gold Points.

While this is technically ARMS debut in the Smash series, there have been spirit events in the past featuring characters like Spring Man. The ARMS fighter will arrive in Smash Bros. Ultimate this June.
