Min Min or Twintelle!? I don't know!

Team Min Min.

Although, I wouldn't be surprised if they do a Bowser Jr. kind of thing where alternate outfits are different fighters.

@JWeinCom I really like that idea. Hope they go with it.

That's nice. An ARMS character would fit rather well. My guess is that it'll be Ninjara.

@JWeinCom Why not?

JWeinCom (on 27 March 2020)

Just my personal preference really.

@JWeinCom Makes sense to me. After all, Springtron was basically an evil robot pallet swap of Spring Man.

JWeinCom (on 27 March 2020)

Yeah. They'd just have to change some of his animations a bit. I'd much rather it not be Spring Man though.

I can see this maybe being 4 characters with 2 colour variations each.

I reckon it will be Ribbon Girl, don't know why but she's the first one that comes to mind for me even over Springman.

FloatingWaffles (on 27 March 2020)

This makes me so happy. ARMS is severely slept on ever since it launched and I feel it doesn't get the recognition it deserves, so i'm glad it's getting this at least since it deserves a spot.

CaptainExplosion (on 26 March 2020)

Can't be Spring Man, because he's already an Assist Trophy. Maybe Twintelle, because she has nice.....punches.

JWeinCom (on 26 March 2020)

The assist trophy makes Spring Man unlikely, but I wouldn't say it eliminates him completely. They could for instance just patch Spring Man to Springtron. Or, they could do something similar to what they did for Toon Link in the Spirit Track stage, where if Spring Man is actually in the fight, another character will show up as the assist instead.
