Back in March, Nintendo teased the next fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, revealing that it will be a character from the Switch fighting game ARMS. Nothing more about the character was revealed then, leaving us to guess which ARMS fighter was most likely to get the roster spot in Ultimate.

At its EA Play Live event, EA Games is promising to give Apex Legends players that and more this coming Fall, expanding the battle royale's reach across more platforms.
