    • Pokémon Sword & Shield expansion pass details. Isle of Armor comes out at the end of June, with more info about The Crown Tundra to follow.

    If you don't want to wait for those titles, Nintendo has announced Switch games and content available now: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order expansion pass content featuring the Fantastic Four, Shinsekai: Into the Depths, Good Job!, A Ring Fit Adventure update featuring a rhythm mode with music from Splatoon 2, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Odyssey, Star Wars: Jedi Knight Academy, Panzer Dragoon: Remake, and the Bravely Default II demo.

    Next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Character Comes From Arms

    By GameInformer,

    Back in January, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai announced a second Fighters Pass, which will bring six more downloadable fighters to the biggest crossover battlefield in gaming. While we still don't know the details of who the first character of Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will be, we do know that the character will hail from Arms, the 2017 fighting game from Nintendo.

    Arms features 15 characters, each of which has a distinct style and arsenal of moves. While it would make sense for Spring Man or Ribbon Girl to appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate thanks to their mascot statuses for the game, Twintelle garnered quite the fan base when the title launched. Also working against the idea of Spring Man as a playable character is the fact that he's currently an Assist Trophy. 

    Whichever character the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate development team chose from the Arms roster will be both announced and released in June. For more on Arms, check out our review.
