Nintendo Direct Focused on Arms Scheduled For Tomorrow

ARMS Nintendo Direct May 17th

The Arms Nintendo Direct revealed a lot of information about the fighting game ahead of its June release date including two new fighters and a ton of multiplayer modes and other great tidbits.

Finally, as briefly shown and touched upon in a previous Nintendo Direct, currency that you earn in battles can be spent in the target range-styled Arms Getter, allowing you to unlock new arms and even upgrade already-acquired ones likewise.

You'll be able to play-test ARMS starting May 26th at 5:00pm PST, May 27th at 5:00am PST, 11:00am PST, or 5:00pm PST.

First are the new characters Twintelle, Kid Cobra and Byte and Barq. Or is it 3v2, given that Byte and Barq appear to be a puppet-based fighter? For players who enjoy sports but do not want to go through the trouble of using a ball, then the Hoops mode is for you. Here's a rundown of all of the upcoming modes.

Grand Prix - Win 10 straight matches in Grand Prix and players will face a final opponent to be crowned the ARMS champion. Additionally, a new Switch Pro controller, featuring green and pink grips, has been announced for Japan.
