Embargo Broken, Three New ARMS Characters Revealed For Upcoming Game


A system bundle was also announced for Europe and Japan containing Splatoon 2 and a Switch. Nintendo has certainly built hype around the title, but as a brand-new IP, plenty remains unknown.

The more ARMS gameplay we get to see, the more interesting it looks as both a casual and competitive fighter. No further details on the content was offered at this time, but if it's anything like the game's shooter counterpart it will be more than substantial to support the game past release. One of the bigger news to be revealed was the unveiling of three new characters which include the duo of Byte & Barq, Kid Cobra, and lastly Twintelle.

Today's Nintendo Direct wasn't so much about looking ahead to what Nintendo is developing, but more about what we already knew. The second tournament, the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational, takes place on 14th June and will feature Nintendo's upcoming ARMS fighting game for Nintendo Switch. I have too many questions about the game that can not be answered by someone bought and paid for by Nintendo to tell me how great it is.

The best part about this announcement that unlike recently major Nintendo releases, these pieces of DLC would be made available for free.

Combat Customization: After selecting a character, players will have the opportunity to equip two ARMS, one on the right and one on the left. With Arms, it appears that Nintendo is hoping it can do for brawlers what Splatoon did for shooters, and provide an experience that caters to casual and hardcore players of all ages.

Multiplayer* Gaming: Playing with friends either locally or online is easy when using one of the various multiplayer modes in ARMS.
