We weren't sure what to make of ARMS when it was first revealed, but Nintendo's bold new IP turned out to be a pleasant surprise and every bit as colourful as Splatoon. The game makes great use of Joy-Con motion controls to let the player use their stretchy weaponised arms to punch, thump and knock-out opponents.

However what if ARMS wasn't really a new IP, but it was secretly developed and never released for the Game Boy Advance? Twitter user bomb998 imagines such a scenario in this pixel art which shows how ARMS might look in 16-bit style:

We have to say we love the mock-up of the bright yellow ARMS style GBA console and the gameplay would likely work quite well in this Punch-out!! style too. The character select screen is a delight too, we almost wish this was real.
