Spring Man stood out as one of the most likely newcomers to Smash, mostly for being the marquee man of an all new fighting IP from Nintendo. Granted it doesn’t have the massive popularity of Splatoon, but ARMS is a notable Switch title nonetheless. Yet here we are, with the full roster revealed and Spring Man punching in not as a fighter but as an Assist Trophy.

It’s sad news for his fans, but his presence here is still more than welcome. He’ll be giving the Belmonts a run for their money in the range department with long reaching punches, and even a rush attack straight out of his home game. My only real hope? He better still call out ‘Spring-a-ling!’ at some point.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
