Wow! Still not sure if I'm a day one, but this youtube video is a way better advertisement for the game than any of Ninty's marketing. Look how fast and intense these matches are!

@Ralizah The more surprising part of that video is that those players happen to be competitive Smashers. And they seemed to control their characters just fine, despite lacking experience with the game and it's controls. Now if they'd just learn to incorporate blocking...

Alone, a force. Together, a force of nature.

I was already intested in this but hearing it's Kosuke Yabuki'a next project after Mario Kart 8 has certainly piqued my interest.

I'd not be very surprised if this game isn't accessible on the surface but also very deep.
I'm less worried it will be shallow like a lot of people have feared.

After playing the Global Testfire, I'm much more interested in playing ARMS than a multiplayer shooter. I definitely prioritize story and survival / action-adventure types of games like Nier, Gravity Rush, Horizon, and everything else on PS4 right now; however the Switch is like having extra time to play around the house and on the bus. To that end the seemingly more network-optional nature of Arms really suits the platform more than something like Splatoon where you have to sit down, be super tuned into the game because it's so fast and that screen is so busy, and also set up the phone app for team chat.

Especially after nothing was said in the direct, I would be really surprised if they announced a whole different singleplayer mode at E3. However, if there's enough stage diversity in the modes and multiplayer, I don't think that will be a problem. Besides perhaps Mario Kart 8, I think this will be the perfect Nintendo game for the platform.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

@Haru17 I think ARMS in Nintendo's E3 will be the launch trailer in the main event and a lot of treehouse live gameplay during the rest of E3.

I don't think so because it will launch less than a week after it. I expect a trailer and maybe another video like in the last Direct, possibly explaining game modes. What i expect a lote of gameplay is Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2, a possible surprise (Retro?) and most of all Odissey

@FGPackers It launching on the same week as E3 is exactly why I think there'll be a lot of treehouse live gameplay. Let's not forget that there's a lot of time available, both E3 2014 and E3 2015 had 3 8 hour streams from Nintendo so if Nintendo goes for that again there's plenty of time for significant ARMS gameplay.

A new weapon-arm attachment thingy has been shown as well as alternative colours for the fighters has been unveiled.

Interesting, kind of. This can be a way to expend in-game currency. Can't wait to discover more!

@Grumblevolcano @FGPackers I think if Nintendo really wants to sell this game, they are going to need much more than more gameplay footage. A proper demo would go a long way, though I am not sure Nintendo will go down this route. I think this will be more of a niche market in terms of sales unless they can really turn people's general views on the game around.

@Grumblevolcano OK, thanks. Sorry, I don't bother watching those. Would be nice if they showed some footage of this mode.

@jump That is one dark, saturated piece of The Wind Waker concept art.

I wonder how often the 4 person mode just devolves into a group hug.

@Dev
Really? That's great news! If they get the roster up to 12, 15 fighters that would definitely be acceptable. Anything more would be exceptional.

@Dev Superb news. I thought we might get 12 to 16 characters but he makes it sounds like there'll be even more than that. I think they'll take the Splatoon approach with it, announcing new fighter's, stages, modes etc every few days in the weeks before release. Worked great for Splatoon and helped build hype for a new IP. A demo would be ideal.

I'm so hyped for this game,possibly even more so than Mario. I know Mario will be phenomenal, that is guaranteed. But this is is something completely unique. I love motion controls when done right, they can add a whole other level of immersion to the right game. Grandslam Tennis and Tiger Woods 09/10 have to be my favourite use of them so far. Those games had my blood pumping when I played them like no other,especially when playing online. What better game for advanced motion controls than long arm boxing though, it's perfect. Those graphics too. My only concern is online.As long as it's as good as MK8 I'm fine. Smash gave me some problems though. 1v1 was fine 80% of the time but any more than that was a lottery. Splatoon had its issues too.

DNA Man has been announced! Err... I guess Helix is in English
He seems... rather interesting.
Looks like he can change the form of his body too, from being really tall and thin to squishing down to the ground.
