Boxing and shooting combined.



Nintendo has announced Arms for Switch, a fighting game that combines boxing and shooting, where you use extendable arms to battle. It will launch this spring.


To play Arms, you hold both Joycon controllers up. When you punch, your character punches. When you twist your fist, your punch curves. By performing dashes and jumps, you can perform a variety of actions.



Because the game uses physical controls, anyone can pick it up and play it right away. It will support both local and online multiplayer.
Developing.

Nintendo Switch’s Upcoming Title ARMS Won’t Require Motion Control. January 16, 2017 . 4:00am

You can check out some ARMS gameplay from Nintendo Treehouse Live in the above video.

When the game was first revealed as well as during the play sessions after the presentation, we mostly got to see the game being played using motion controls, but we now know that players will have the option to switch between both.

While games such as Wii Sports and other casual-friendly titles come to mind, we got to check out ARMS for ourselves and its controls were pretty responsive and required a certain amount of thought, so it might not necessarily be the easiest thing for casual players to go up against seasoned motion control veterans.

Arms: Global Testpunch demo, three new characters, free updates, and more announced
Published 37 mins ago. 11 comments.
Quote:
Meet Kid Cobra, Byte & Barq, and Twintelle.






Nintendo announced a “Global Testpunch” demo, three new characters, free post-launch updates, and more for Arms during an Arms-focused Nintendo Direct live stream today.




The Global Testpunch demo will be accessible on May 26 (North America-only), May 27, May 28, June 2 (North America-only), June 3, and June 4. The Arms Global Testpunch application will be available as a free download on the Nintendo eShop before the demo begins.


The three new characters are named Kid Cobra, Byte & Barq, and Twintelle.


Free post-launch updates will add new fighters, stages, and equippable Arms to the game.


Get the full overview of new information below, via Nintendo.
Combat Customization
After selecting a character, players will have the opportunity to equip two Arms, one on the right and one on the left. These Arms range from standard fists to things like boomerangs and missiles, offering a wide variety of close- and long-range attacks, as well as offensive and defensive options.
  • Types – Dozens of Arms can be selected in the game, each with its own special power and handling ability. Different types range from the Toaster, which unleashes a flaming punch, to the Tribolt, which shoots three bolts horizontally. Some Arms even boost defense, like the Guardian, which can be used as a shield.


  • Attributes – There are seven different Arms attributes in the game, each with its own specialty: Fire, Electricity, Wind, Ice, Stun, Explosion and Blind. Different Arms have different attributes, so it’s a good idea to mix and match for a strategic advantage.


  • Weight – When equipping the many different types of Arms, weight is an important factor in determining performance. Weight affects momentum, so players have to keep this in mind when selecting Arms. Stronger Arms are more powerful but slower, while multi-hit Arms are quick but have lower individual power. Punches can even run into each other while fighting, with the heavier Arms knocking the lighter ones away.


  • Upgrade Arms – As players fight through ARMS, they will rack up hard-earned in-game currency for use at the Arms Getter, where players can use their skills to earn new ARMS and the ability to upgrade previously owned ones.
■ Versus Mode
Arms is filled to the brim with fun modes that offer a variety of ways to challenge other fighters.
  • Fight – In this main multiplayer* mode, two fighters battle against each other one-on-one to claim victory. During the fight, bombs and other healing items drop in, adding some strategic options to the proceedings.


  • Team Fight – In this mode, two players are attached by strings and must team up to battle another team of two. Attacks can hit allies, so watch out for friendly punches!


  • V-Ball – Similar to volleyball, but much more awesome. V-Ball is a sport that involves knocking an explosive ball into the opponent’s court.


  • Hoops – Grab opponents and shoot them into the net (or even dunk them for extra satisfaction) in this hard-core game of Arms-style basketball.


  • Skillshot – Break as many targets as possible using the versatile powers of ARMS.


  • 1-on-100 – Defeat 100 enemies in a row, one at a time, in this progressive battle mode.


  • Arms Test & Training – In Test mode, players can try out randomized Arms combinations, while Training lets them practice a number of varied drills.
■ Multiplayer* Gaming
Playing with friends either locally or online is easy when using one of the various multiplayer modes in Arms.
  • Grand Prix – Win 10 straight matches in Grand Prix and players will face a final opponent to be crowned the Arms champion. (This mode is played locally with one or two players.)


  • Party Match – By connecting the Nintendo Switch console to the internet, players can battle with up to three other Arms players at a time that are in the same lobby as them. One lobby can hold up to 10 systems, but with up to two players per system, 20 players can potentially get together in the same lobby.


  • Ranked Match – In this time-honored coliseum, players compete online in 1-v-1 battles. By winning a match, a player’s rank goes up, while, conversely, losing will make that rank go down. While waiting to play a Ranked Match online, players can participate in any other mode to pass the time (and tighten up their skills).


  • Local Wireless Mode – When playing in Local Wireless mode, up to eight players with eight separate systems in the same room can gather in an in-game lobby and battle up to three other players at a time like in Party Match.
Arms Updates
In the future, Nintendo will release free software updates that add new fighters, stages and ARMS to the game. These free updates will occur after the game launches, so watch for additional details!




■ Global Testpunch
Like Splatoon 2 and Splatoon before it, Arms is offering free trial periods to try out the game and get a taste of what it’s like before launch. But instead of a Global Testfire, these free demos will naturally be called the Global Testpunch. The first blocks of time will be allocated throughout the weekend of May 26-28, and the second blocks on June 2-4. To participate, simply download the free Global Testpunch demo in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch before the trials begin.


Check the official website for updates about specific timing.




■ Characters
Over the course of the Nintendo Direct presentation, the 10 key playable fighters in Arms were unveiled. Each with his or her own fighting style, the game’s playable characters are full of personality.
  • Spring Man – This passionate fighter’s bouncy hairstyle might look fake, but his passion for fighting is definitely real.


  • Ninjara – Using his nimble movements and ancient ninjutsu, Ninjara can disappear and warp somewhere else even in mid-air or when guarding.


  • Master Mummy – As the only character that can restore health while guarding, Master Mummy is a force to be reckoned with.


  • Min Min – With her ramen noodle arms, Min Min’s spin kick and throws are deliciously powerful.


  • Kid Cobra – A fan of selfie sticks and live streaming, this hip fighter pounces on opponents with a charged-up dash.


  • Ribbon Girl – Possessing next-level jumping skills, Ribbon Girl violates the laws of physics with her unbeatable power.


  • Helix – Who is Helix? He’s an experiment gone wrong, that’s who. His springy body lets him move in unpredictable ways.


  • Mechanica – This mechanical genius dons a homemade power suit that can hover above the competition.


  • Byte & Barq – Two fighters in one! This robot fighter and his robot canine companion battle together to unleash devastating combo attacks.


  • Twintelle – As an A-list actress, Twintelle uses her celebrity status to render her opponents utterly star struck as she walks the red carpet to victory.

I just played a solid 20min of this in the test/beta, and I don't think I'm gonna get this game. I didn't have that much fun playing it. It's an interesting concept, but not one that I think I would play for longer than a few hours max.

Maybe it would be fun as a co-op game, but just playing online didn't do much for me.

Watch them live on June 13 and 14.





Nintendo has detailed the Splatoon 2 and Arms tournaments it plans to hold at E3 2017 on June 13 and 14, respectively.




Both tournaments will be live streamed at Nintendo’s E3 2017 website, as well as on its YouTube an Twitch channels.
Here are the details, via Nintendo:
2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational
  • Time: Tuesday, June 13, Approximately 2:30 p.m. PT

The four four-person teams – “Deadbeat” from the United States, “Dynameu” from Japan, “Rising Moon” from Europe and “Blue Ringed Octolings” from Australia/New Zealand – defeated their rivals in local tournaments that occurred in recent months.
During the show in Los Angeles, teams will battle in a round-robin Turf War tournament that will decide seeding for the next round. All teams will play one another and get a chance to scope out their opponents’ strengths and weaknesses. In the next round, teams will battle in the game’s Ranked Battle modes. The semifinal stage will be a best-of-five battle, while the championship will be best-of-seven.
The winning team of the live-streamed tournament will win global bragging rights and will have their names engraved on a sweet Splatoon 2 trophy. Announcers for the Splatoon 2 tournament will be avid Splatoon player, Nintendo fan, athlete and broadcaster Jordan Kent, Ashley Esqueda of CNET and the Nintendo Treehouse’s Eric Smith.
To help kids and squids get the most out of all the tournament action, prior to E3 Nintendo will release video content highlighting the tactics, strategies and storylines behind competitive Splatoon play.
2017 Arms Open Invitational
  • Time: Wednesday, June 14, Approximately 3:30 p.m. PT

ARMS Creators On The Popularity Of Twintelle And Lessons Learned From Working On Mario Kart . June 4, 2017 . 1:30pm

“We weren’t really expecting the fans to be so taken with her, so that was a very pleasant surprise!” said ARMS producer Kosuke Yabuki in regards to Twintelle’s popularity.

ARMS is only just in its beta phase before its release on June 16th, but already the game’s characters have become very popular amongst the player community. Twintelle in particular has especially garnered a lot of fans for her character design.

In a recent interview with Game Informer, ARMS producer Kosuke Yabuki and artist Masaaki Ishikawa were asked what their thoughts were of Twintelle’s overwhelming popularity and the large amount of fanart that has already been created of the game’s characters, despite the title having not even released yet.

However, to start off, Yabuki was asked what kinds of lessons learned from his time working on the Mario Kart series were helpful while developing ARMS. This was his reply:
“For Mario Kart Wii we had the steering wheel attachment so players could use motion controls, but you could also play with the motion controller and more traditional controls so that really offered players the freedom to play however they wanted to in Mario Kart. For Arms, we kind of carried this lesson over. Motion controls are a big feature of this game, but players can still use pro controllers or traditional controls like in handheld and choose the way that they would like to play. That’s one of the lessons that we learned from Mario Kart.”

When asked his thoughts about Twintelle’s overwhelming popularity within the fanbase, Yabuki had the following to say:
“We weren’t really expecting the fans to be so taken with her, so that was a very pleasant surprise! And like I just mentioned, she has that really strong build to her and that seems to be something that the community has picked up on so I’m glad that we were able to create this new character design.”

In regards to the huge amount of fanart being created of the characters just after the game’s one beta, Ishikawa responded with the following:
“As for the fan art, we’ve seen a lot of that come through social media and as a character designer I feel pure joy at seeing what the fans are creating. Looking at the fan art and how the artists draw Twintelle with different poses and how they match her with other characters, there’s a lot of variety and vibrance to that art and I love looking at that. I see a lot of it.”

ARMS will release for the Nintendo Switch on June 16th, 2017.

Arms was only announced a few short months ago and here it is in Victor Lucas’s hot little hands! Does it have what it takes to be a Switch hit? Is this a rare misstep for Nintendo?
