"Mechanica itself is the brainless ARMS belly girls!"
The colourful roster of fighters in upcoming Switch game ARMS trade blows using extendable weaponised arms, but what if by some chance you weren't born with such stretchy arms? (or, in a more horrific interpretation, weren't willing to have your perfectly good arms chopped off to be replaced by...
It's like an onion
ARMS has layers. Many, many layers. That is at least if the latest Nintendo Direct is to be believed. What started out as an apparently straightforward and limited beat-em-up with motion controls has rapidly been extrapolated into something far grander than we think many people expected. Sound familiar? Sounds just like how...
Hidden in plain sight
When it's not Ganondorf hiding inside a magnifying glass, apparently it's four brand new fighters for Nintendo's upcoming fighter ARMS. That's right, right under our very noses four totally unannounced characters were slipped into the Direct unintentionally, or possibly even purposefully. You can see all four of these...
Another fun colour option
During the Nintendo Direct today it was revealed that ARMS would be released on 16th June along with Neon Yellow Joy-Con which hit stores on the same day. Matching Joy-Con straps will also be available. There's not too much to say about this other than they are a perfect match for the brightly coloured palette of ARMS. Now...
Mix and match your arms
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...
Also featuring other 3DS and Switch games
Ladies and gentlemen, we...are...live! This is the main event of the day, this is the moment you've all been waiting for... It's time! In the blue corner we have the undefeated, undisputed, freshest champion, Splatoon 2! In the red corner we have the rookie, the new challenger, the new kid on the block,...
Thoughts before this evening's Nintendo Direct
We're now mere hours away from the latest Nintendo Direct and we hope Nintendo don't pull any punches when it comes to details on forthcoming Switch titles ARMS and Splatoon 2. Whilst the Direct is scheduled to cover upcoming 3DS titles and other Switch releases (*cough* Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
One modern way to check how your new brand new IP is tracking is by taking a moment to look at the wonderfully talented Nintendo community and see how much fan-art is being created. If we think back a few years it was Splatoon that had a very impressive amount of pre-launch fan art that suggested the game was going to be a hit with fans,...
Late spring release?
Since its first reveal at Nintendo's Switch presentation in January, ARMS has yet to be given an official release date. Stated only as Spring 2017, nothing more concrete has been announced from Nintendo to date. Now Amazon Spain has listed the extendable arm fighting game for release on June 23rd; check out the translated...
Now nowhere near as Japanese
A while ago we shared showcase videos for ARMS that had been posted on Nintendo's Japanese YouTube channel; these showed off characters and weapons from the game. There are now localised versions of the videos, so if you want to enjoy the footage and actually understand the text / voiceover, these are a good option...
A look at characters, moves and strategies
Nintendo seems rather positive about the prospects of ARMS on Nintendo Switch, giving the game prominence at preview events and citing it as a potential breakthrough title in competitive gaming. It also appeals, of course, to nostalgia for Wii-era motion controls, as you punch and swing your arms to create...
Embrace the waggle
Opinion appears to be curiously divided on ARMS, even within the Nintendo Life office. Some say it's shallow and limited, while others are more excited about its hidden depth and waggle-friendly gameplay, which calls to mind those glory days of Wii Sports boxing. If the thought of flailing your limbs around to pull off moves is...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFg6C1IZ4yc It would be fair to say that ARMS received a somewhat lukewarm response when it was unveiled during the Nintendo Switch presentation. While some reacted positively to the colourful visuals, fetching character design and motion-sensitive action, others wrote it off as little more than Wii...
At least we think it is
The Nintendo Switch reveal has polarised fans, as many expected it would, but now we've had a chance to sample the system for ourselves some of our fears have been subdued, and some have been unfortunately made greater. Make sure you check out the video above where this video 'dude' shares his opinions on Nintendo's upcoming...
Fun with fisticuffs
One of the biggest surprises during Nintendo's Switch Presentation was ARMS, a new one-on-one fighting game directly from The Big N in which you slug it out with springy, stretchy arms. We had the opportunity to spend some time with it at Nintendo's New York Switch event; we're not 100 percent sold, but there's no denying this...
Join the Arms race
Much in the same way that Splatoon was a new IP that acted as a poster child for the Wii U, it seems that Nintendo is bringing in another new IP to show off the motion controls for the Nintendo Switch. The new game is called ARMS, and features a colourful cast of characters in a high intensity boxing match. Character arms are...
