In today's Nintendo Direct it was revealed that ARMS will be released in stores on 16th June. That's about when we expected it to be released, but it's great to get the final confirmation.
One of the biggest features in the upcoming fighting game is the ability to equip two types of customizable ARMS per fighter. These ARMS range from standard gloved ARMS to curved weapons like boomerangs. Each ARM has a special attribute like fire, ice or electricity that activates when delivering a charge punch.
As players fight through the game, they will earn in-game currency that can be used to play the ARM Getter, a fun mode in which they can get new ARMS for their fighters. The fast-paced game can be played in 1-v-1 matches or even 2-v-2 for more entertainingly chaotic battles.
During the Nintendo Direct presentation, a new character was also revealed: the super-fast, ramen-armed Min Min who can defect incoming attacks with a downward kick.
Neon Yellow Joy-Con were also revealed, which will be sold alongside the release of ARMS.
We have to say ARMS is looking much more like a fully fleshed out retail game now. Let us know if you are more excited to play it now with a comment below.
