  • ARMS Nintendo Direct May 17th

Several new characters were also introduced into the fray, the first being, Kid Cobra, who is a more "hip" fighter with a charging dash. You can fight one on one or two on two. This robot fighter and his robot canine companion battle together to unleash devastating combo attacks. Each player will be able to choose their own character and rely on their extendable arms in knocking out their opponents.

Arms is a rare original Nintendo game that isn't based on a previous franchise like Zelda or Mario. Some of the more unique weapons are known as signature weapons that certain characters have available to them from the get-go. Local is offline and works with up to eight players with up to eight systems.

Single-player mode is destined to help prep players with tips and tricks that can be used in the game's multiplayer mode. This will include new arenas to fight in, new ARMS to equip, and yes, new characters as well. There will be 1 on 1 ranked online and fun matches for up to four players each in a lobby that can hold up to 20 players.

Nintendo also revealed that, like Splatoon for the Wii U, Arms will be receiving steady software updates for free post-launch. This event will be begin May 26 and will have dates all the way into June. Overall, not a bad showcase from Nintendo, with the Global Testpunch being an awesome way to see how current Switch owners enjoy it. We already know that it's going to launch on June 16th, so the bulk of the news will likely be gameplay-related.
