Today, Nintendo announced the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Arms fighter will get a full reveal next Monday, June 22. It also confirmed there will be no further fighter reveals during the stream.

In a tweet from Nintendo of America, it confirms Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai will take an in-depth look at the game’s newest DLC addition, the Arms fighter. It will begin on June 22, at 7 am PT/10 am ET, and will last roughly 35 minutes.

Additionally, within the same Twitter thread, Nintendo of America confirms there will be no other DLC fighter reveals during the Arms fighter-focused live stream. “There will be no further new fighter reveals other than a fighter from Arms in this live stream,” says Nintendo via Twitter.

Personally, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Arms fighter isn’t the most exciting addition to the game. I could think of a few other characters I would like to see (like my Lord and savior, Il Piantissimo). Despite that, Arms really is one of the only Nintendo-branded “fighting” games that include all-original characters. Also, I can see the Arms fighter be pretty fun to use with its long-range melee hits. Maybe Sakurai will convince me this is an awesome addition. It wouldn’t be the first time.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now on Nintendo Switch. The Arms fighter is part of the second Fighters Pass, which includes a total of six fighters; none of the other DLC fighters have been revealed yet. You can purchase Fighters Pass Vol. 2 for $29.99 right now. Fighters Pass Vol. 1 is also available, which includes Joker from Persona 5 and Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, and costs $24.99.
