I hope one of the characters is a bear for the sake of the 2nd amendment.

Seems like a fun game with interesting mechanics and recognizable characters.

Could very well replicate Splatoon's success (on a much smaller scale, of course) if there's enough depth to it and they advertise it properly.

Spring Man has, for me, the coolest design of any Nintendo character in the past 10 years, and I LOVED Splatoon's characters. I actually don't think I've been this hyped for a new IP in a long time. The idea is so simple, but so creative, and it demonstrates everything I love about Nintendo.

God, I love ARMS. I wanna gush some more but I am on mobile and it's too much of a pain. Either way, I cannot wait to see what else it has to offer.

Feel in love with it the moment it appeared in the presentation. It looks likes Punch-Out!! on crack.

Easily gonna be one of the first games I'll get.

I'll just leave this here:

Oh yes. The more exposure this game can get, the better. One thing that Splatoon had that ARMS doesn't is time for marketing. Splatoon had roughly a year for Nintendo to push it, but only a few months for ARMS. Any bit of exposure they can get is great.

But the real question is, will the roster be any bigger?

I would also like to see if more customization options are available.

Didn't they say that they had more characters not yet revealed? (Or something along those lines)

At least I would hope there are more than just those five.

Anyway, with characters based off springs, ribbons, chains, wires and mummy wrapping. What other types of characters would you like to see appear in this game?

For a water based character, perhaps one based off seaweed might be interesting to see....

Well it is a fighting game

It could very well be like Pokken or street fighter or like . ..every modern fighting game where more content (like characters) are added as time goes on to keep interest up.

I would be shocked if we only kept the characters we have and nothing more

A Rubber Band Girl would be an interesting concept.

Or maybe something based on Party Streamers.

In terms of roster, I have a hard time seeing the 5 shown being the only characters. Brand new fighting IPs typically don't have huge rosters at first and I see the same here (I see somewhere between 16-24 characters in this case, though I'm leaning more towards the lower half). And the fact you can change arms for each character will easily expand the variety of the game.

And I have a small hunch we could see a newcomer at Genesis 4

Also, love this fan art starring :4littlemac:

It's so funny, because it's true.

Spring Man is a photoshopped Little Mac after all.

Yes indeed my arms are fantastically useless. Wanna trade limbs? :039:

Nah for real- this game looks silly as hell. Not gonna really be too serious about it for now until I see more gameplay. Otherwise, it looks alright. Not on my current list of wants however.

I'm actually a little more interested in this game now that normal controls are confirmed.

I'm interested, though I would be more so interested in a fighting game called legs. :p

I want the game to be a sleeper hit but I'd be glad for it to just get some decent sales.

I wonder if Nintendo will try to have it at Evo.

Can you guys believe that people are nominating Arms for an EVO spot?

Too bad its mere 910 dollars pales in comparison to UMvC3, Killer Instinct, and Pokken.

Well if the game goes over well there's a much better chance it'll be there next year, right?

Found this on Pixiv, it was too funny not to share.

Poor Tethu though.

Wasn't expecting Arms to be an EVO nominee. But I think next year is a better chance anyway (assuming the game goes well).

Yeah, assuming the game does well I can see it being more of a side event next year.

I will seriously be disappointed if there's no Clown with extendible boxing gloves added to the game...

Here we have is a new massive Famitsu article all about arms. It's a pretty interesting read if you look into it. There are more modes in the game than we thought and we were already aware that there is more characters and stages in the final game. They didn't inspire the game by Wii Sports at all, but to create a fighting game with a third person camera perspective that allows you to look at your opponent (citing 3D and 2D fighters for inspiration). Each character has their own unique attributes in addition to the arms that you equip. They are definitely aiming on having a heavy competitive metagame for its release, hence why they didn't want to advertise the other modes for the game.

This is definitely one of the more ambitious titles since Splatoon. Can't wait to see more news for the game for these next few months.

A third person fighter? Never that thought about that one before thsouth arena fighters and brawlers are a thing. Unless they are referring to the fixed camera behind your back the whole time.

What I'm more interested in is the comic book deal regarding their different ages and the game's setting. Is it like a universal tournament of some sort? I'm getting a League of Legends feel from this game and the good kind.

More news is good enough. I want my Fighting Clown already.

Neat. But I still want to see more of the game's content even before the Swtich's release
Same here. I wonder if there will be a story and final boss akin to Street Fighter at least.

That would expand the game's lore a bit other than fan speculation that the characters are cyborgs with arm implants.

I like how everyone is comparing the game to Overwatch just because of Ninjara and Mechanica. :troll:

I wouldn't mind a character with paddle ball arms
Genius, that's a great idea.

And don't forget all the edgy people saying "Overwatch sucks" because of said jokes.

And I don't think it's a bad games
