Nintendo’s officially pulled back the curtain on its upcoming wacky, spring-loaded fighting game Arms.
As was revealed in yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, Arms boasts a mix-and-match style of combat. Players can choose their fighters, each of whom have different attributes, and mix and match their two arms and elemental abilities to create unique combos.
One of the fighters made her debut during the direct: noodle fighter Min Min. With noodle arms and hair and the ability to knock down an opponent with her powerful kicks, Min Min uses a mix of ramen and martial arts to fight. Another, Spring-Man, has appeared before, but we now know his powers: the ability to super-charge punches and deflect incoming punches with counter-attacks.
In addition to one-on-one battles, which were showcased during the direct, Arms will also feature chaotic 2-on-2 fights.
Arms is scheduled to launch on June 16th, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. It arrives alongside two new Neon Yellow Joy-Con Controllers.
