another upcoming title to the switch is ARMS. the fighting game that utilise the joy cons motion features to create a fighting game, however there is a catch rather than throwing normal punches the characters have spring arms so the punches curve as they fly through the air adding much more depth and skill to the fights.
Grab onto your Joy-Con with a unique “thumbs-up” grip and use simple motions and button presses to outthink your opponent. Toss and curve punches when you find an opening, and dodge a flurry of incoming attacks. It’s fast-paced fun for everyone!
One of the biggest features is the ability to equip two types of customisable ARMS per fighter. These ARMS range from standard gloved ARMS to curved weapons like boomerangs. Each arm has a special attribute like fire, ice or electricity that activates when delivering a charge punch.
Throw punches around (or through) mysterious liquid-filled columns in a spooky laboratory, or in certain arenas, toss fighters onto trampolines for epic aerial skirmishes.
with a wacky cast of characters and straightforward to hard to master controls ARMS will really shape up to be an amazing family or party game, that is if you are willing to put money towards an extra set of joy cons to play the multiplayer.
Arms springs onto Nintendo switch on June 16th 2017
