    I don't know if anyone else here is interested but seeing the direct today got me super hyped up for ARMS, Nintendo's newest IP for the Switch. I can honestly see this game going the exact same route as Splatoon with its unique take on a well-established genre being surprisingly fun and addictive. Anyone else have any thoughts they want to share?
  2. I really love when Nintendo dabbles in new IP's. Splatoon is one of my favourite games period, and even though I don't have a switch I'm really excited for Arms as well. I can't personally say that I've ever wondered what would happen if you glued couch springs and flaming boxing gloves to some kids, but I'm glad Nintendo is realizing that dream for us! I have a feeling it's going to do super well based on the Testpunches, art contest and staggered updates... literally exactly how Nintendo marketed Splatoon. If it ain't broke, don't fix it I guess, haha.

    When I first saw Arms back at the presentation, my reaction was kinda on the meh side as it looked okay, nothing special or anything, it looked fun, but there was nothing particularly interesting about it, however as I saw more and more of the game, I became a lot more interested and intrigued about this game and how it's going to turn out, and now after the direct yesterday, I will go ahead and say I am very hyped for this game now,
    It's just hitting most of the right spots for me, memorable and very charming characters, (Mechanica and Mummy Man are probably my favorites of the bunch and what i'll most likely end up using.)
    Amazing looking visuals, fucking incredible music,
    All the fun extra modes, (Hoops specifically gets a special mention just for how silly it is.) The neat looking arms you can get and unlock, the free stuff coming out afterwards, (Ala Splatoon, it's gonna have more content for free after the game is released.) Seriously this game has come a long way since it's reveal.
    hell as soon as the direct was over, I pre ordered a copy immediately. That's how excited I am now, It managed to suck me in due to it's silly charm, fun and just it's overall uniqueness, and I can't wait to play the test punch next week to try it out, And I can't wait to the play the game when it comes out.

    It's funny how what I originally thought was simply a okay game when it was first revealed is now one of my most anticipated games on the Switch.

    It looks good and all but it seriously makes me want another Punch-Out even though they aren't the same kind of game. At first i thought i was interested in ARMS but my interest in it waned over time.

    Hm? I'm more interested in it now than I ever was.

    So they say there will be more fighters in updates. A cowboy/cowgirl with whip arms, and a revolver as one of their weapons?

    Probably, I'm more sold on the fact that post-launch fighters and maps will come free after buying the game.
