ARMS Direct Shows Off Fighters, Mechanics, Online, and More

ARMS logo

Earlier today, Nintendo put out an ARMS focused Nintendo Direct that gave us a ton of new information about the upcoming Switch game. Details were given on a number of new characters like Kid Cobra and Twintelle. Details about the mechanics and gameplay were also revealed alongside plenty of new footage. A number of different versus modes including Team Fight, V-Ball, Hoops, and 1-on-100 were also shown off.

Some of the online features of ARMS were also detailed during the direct. Switch owners can either choose to play in Party Matches or Ranked Matches, depending on how competitive they are feeling. Party Matches feature a lobby of up to 20 players that can all battle each other in a number of versus modes. Ranked Matches will be limited to 1-v-1 battles whose outcomes affect the players' ranks.

ARMS Global Testpunch

Following in the footsteps of Splatoon, ARMS will feature a free demo in the form of a Global Testpunch throughout May 26-28 and June 2-4. ARMS will also feature free content updates after the game is released to add value to the experience. ARMS will release exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on June 16. Check out the full press release and Nintendo Direct below.

Following the ARMS section of the direct, a single player mode from Splatoon 2 was also shown off. So far, the campaign is looking similar to the first game. This hero mode features the Squid Sisters and a grand search for Callie (with the help of Marie). Check out the trailer:

Nintendo Unleashes a Barrage of Details for the New ARMS Game for Nintendo Switch

New Trailer for Splatoon 2 Single-Player Mode Also Debuts

REDMOND, Wash., May 17, 2017 – Nintendo premiered a new Nintendo Direct video presentation all about its upcoming ARMS game for the Nintendo Switch console – with a little surprise from everyone’s favorite Inklings in the Splatoon 2 game as part of a bonus trailer at the end. ARMS was created by many of the same team members that developed the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game for Nintendo Switch, promising the same level of polish and competitive action as the hit racing game. The Nintendo Direct video detailed many new features about ARMS, including key characters, attributes and the game’s numerous multiplayer battle modes, as well as information about a free Global Testpunch demo for the game that starts at the end of May.
“With games like Mario Kart 8 DeluxeARMS and Splatoon 2, the next few months will be a summer of social competitive gaming on Nintendo Switch,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This Nintendo Direct presentation offered great reasons why ARMS is perfect for players of all ages, whether they are familiar with fighting games or not.”
To view the Nintendo Direct video in its entirety, visit http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct. Some of the highlights revealed in the video include:
  • Combat Customization: After selecting a character, players will have the opportunity to equip two ARMS, one on the right and one on the left. These ARMS range from standard fists to things like boomerangs and missiles, offering a wide variety of close- and long-range attacks, as well as offensive and defensive options.
    • Types – Dozens of ARMS can be selected in the game, each with its own special power and handling ability. Different types range from the Toaster, which unleashes a flaming punch, to the Tribolt, which shoots three bolts horizontally. Some ARMS even boost defense, like the Guardian, which can be used as a shield.
    • Attributes – There are seven different ARMS attributes in the game, each with its own specialty: Fire, Electricity, Wind, Ice, Stun, Explosion and Blind. Different ARMS have different attributes, so it’s a good idea to mix and match for a strategic advantage.
    • Weight – When equipping the many different types of ARMS, weight is an important factor in determining performance. Weight affects momentum, so players have to keep this in mind when selecting ARMS. Stronger ARMS are more powerful but slower, while multi-hit ARMS are quick but have lower individual power. Punches can even run into each other while fighting, with the heavier ARMS knocking the lighter ones away.
    • Upgrade ARMS – As players fight through ARMS, they will rack up hard-earned in-game currency for use at the ARMS Getter, where players can use their skills to earn new ARMS and the ability to upgrade previously owned ones.
  • Versus ModeARMS is filled to the brim with fun modes that offer a variety of ways to challenge other fighters.
    • Fight – In this main multiplayer* mode, two fighters battle against each other one-on-one to claim victory. During the fight, bombs and other healing items drop in, adding some strategic options to the proceedings.
    • Team Fight – In this mode, two players are attached by strings and must team up to battle another team of two. Attacks can hit allies, so watch out for friendly punches!
    • V-Ball – Similar to volleyball, but much more awesome. V-Ball is a sport that involves knocking an explosive ball into the opponent’s court.
    • Hoops – Grab opponents and shoot them into the net (or even dunk them for extra satisfaction) in this hard-core game of ARMS-style basketball.
    • Skillshot – Break as many targets as possible using the versatile powers of ARMS.
    • 1-on-100 – Defeat 100 enemies in a row, one at a time, in this progressive battle mode.
    • ARMS Test & Training – In Test mode, players can try out randomized ARMS combinations, while Training lets them practice a number of varied drills.
  • Multiplayer* Gaming: Playing with friends either locally or online is easy when using one of the various multiplayer modes in ARMS.
    • Grand Prix – Win 10 straight matches in Grand Prix and players will face a final opponent to be crowned the ARMS champion. (This mode is played locally with one or two players.)
    • Party Match – By connecting the Nintendo Switch console to the internet, players can battle with up to three other ARMS players at a time that are in the same lobby as them. One lobby can hold up to 10 systems, but with up to two players per system, 20 players can potentially get together in the same lobby.
    • Ranked Match – In this time-honored coliseum, players compete online in 1-v-1 battles. By winning a match, a player’s rank goes up, while, conversely, losing will make that rank go down. While waiting to play a Ranked Match online, players can participate in any other mode to pass the time (and tighten up their skills).
    • Local Wireless Mode: When playing in Local Wireless mode, up to eight players with eight separate systems in the same room can gather in an in-game lobby and battle up to three other players at a time like in Party Match.
  • ARMS Update: In the future, Nintendo will release free software updates that add new fighters, stages and ARMS to the game. These free updates will occur after the game launches, so watch for additional details!
  • Global Testpunch: Like Splatoon 2 and Splatoon before it, ARMS is offering free trial periods to try out the game and get a taste of what it’s like before launch. But instead of a Global Testfire, these free demos will naturally be called the Global Testpunch. The first blocks of time will be allocated throughout the weekend of May 26-28, and the second blocks on June 2-4. To participate, simply download the free Global Testpunch demo in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch before the trials begin. Check http://arms.nintendo.com/ for updates about specific timing.
  • Characters: Over the course of the Nintendo Direct presentation, the 10 key playable fighters in ARMS were unveiled. Each with his or her own fighting style, the game’s playable characters are full of personality.
    • Spring Man – This passionate fighter’s bouncy hairstyle might look fake, but his passion for fighting is definitely real.
    • Ninjara – Using his nimble movements and ancient ninjutsu, Ninjara can disappear and warp somewhere else even in mid-air or when guarding.
    • Master Mummy – As the only character that can restore health while guarding, Master Mummy is a force to be reckoned with.
    • Min Min – With her ramen noodle arms, Min Min’s spin kick and throws are deliciously powerful.
    • Kid Cobra – A fan of selfie sticks and livestreaming, this hip fighter pounces on opponents with a charged-up dash.
    • Ribbon Girl – Possessing next-level jumping skills, Ribbon Girl violates the laws of physics with her unbeatable power.
    • Helix – Who is Helix? He’s an experiment gone wrong, that’s who. His springy body lets him move in unpredictable ways.
    • Mechanica – This mechanical genius dons a homemade power suit that can hover above the competition.
    • Byte & Barq – Two fighters in one! This robot fighter and his robot canine companion battle together to unleash devastating combo attacks.
    • Twintelle – As an A-list actress, Twintelle uses her celebrity status to render her opponents utterly star struck as she walks the red carpet to victory.
Splatoon 2
  • Splatoon 2 Single-Player Mode: At the end of the Nintendo Direct presentation, a new trailer for Splatoon 2 debuted, showing off the game’s single-player mode. In a shocking twist, Callie – of Squid Sisters fame – has gone missing and her right-tentacle squid Marie tasks the player to search for Callie and the Great Zapfish. Players can use different weapons in single-player mode to overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and take down towering bosses – weapons like the Roller, Slosher, Splatling or the new Dualies. The single-player mode is designed to teach players tips and tricks that they can then use in multiplayer. For more on the Squid Sisters, check out the Squid Sisters Stories here.
ARMS launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on June 16. For more information about the game, visit http://arms.nintendo.com/Splatoon 2 launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on July 21. For more information about the game, visit http://splatoon.nintendo.com/.

salut,Je pense faire prochainnement un blanchiment dentaire cependant j’hйsite qui concerne la mйthode а employer :_Blanchiment en fauteuil chez le dentiste _Blanchissement en ambulatoire ou blanchissement achetй dans le commerce. L’avantage du pack de blanchissement achetй dans le entreprise est couronne dentaire йvidemment son maigre coыt cependant je me demande si cela marche tant, aussi longtemps et si cela est aussi peu nocif.Aprиs entre les 5 quelques je n’ai particuliиrement aucune conceptualisation de ce qui les diffйrencie niveau efficacitй et dangerositй.Est-ce que qqun peut me renseigner ?
