ARMS is the latest new IP from Nintendo that hit the Nintendo Switch to very positive reception. This interesting arena-based fighter has won the hearts of many, and many are starting to think of dream inclusions of who could be added to the roster that would make the game even more interesting. One name that constantly seems to come up is Dhalsim from the Street Fighter series, based on his arms and legs that extend much like an ARMS fighter.
In a recent interview with ARMS producer Kosuke Yabuki, he spoke about this:
“As a child, I lived the Street Fighter 2 boom, and I assume that if I make video games now it is thanks to this game, but don’t expect to see Dhalsim in the game. The thought of it gives me shivers. There is so much to take into consideration, and it makes me somewhat scared! I respect [Street Fighter] too much, I would be afraid to misshape it and give it a bad image.”
