I'm sure they're purposefully saving a few reveals for e3.

No string/rope character yet, or would that be too obvious?

Eh?

E3 is for games, period. I'm sure Nintendo will take advantage of the fact that Arms is a week away and try to capitalize on it while the spotlight is on them. It's not that weird.

If it's anything like the Gundam VS series which is primarily 2v2 as well, it's probably just a "switch target" button. Easy peasy.

10 characters is fine if you have a gazillion weapon combos, which seems to be what they're emphasizing.

The best idea for an unreleased game that hardly anyone has played is to ha e the game be played in the biggest gaming event of the year just a couple of weeks before its released.

This is almost a spiritual successor to virtual on. And if one day we get that game on switch I will thank this game for it. But you know, if all you are interested in is to be wowed by some cgi trailer then it's up to you.

This game could be the next smash brothers or the next splatter for all we know.

If they get little mac in there as a cameo it would be a bonus.

Sweet 2v2 mode cements my purchase. I wanted it earlier but honestly Injustice 2 is going to have all of my May time so June 16th is fine.

Maining Min Min for sure.

Yeah, they really nailed this game's style---loving it.

I feel like Minmin is gonna end up being *ahem* one of those characters, but I got to admit she's the standout character for me already.

Still looking for a solid single-player to complete the package though.

I was a bit lukewarm to this game, but this showcase really helped to sell me on this. There looks to be quite amount of depth.

Oh, and the 2v2 mode was such a thing that the Gundam Vs. fan in me could NOT exist~!

Bravo, Nintendo EAD/EPD. This is a day one now.

Though...I still think "Catch These Hands" would have been a perfectly sound choice for a localized title!

They've said it has regular controls. I would say it's safe to assume that includes pro support.

They should really have released a demo. The new footage didn't inspire confidence. I'm sharing to become worried about Switch.

They need a May Direct as well. Time to start answering questions. Online App?, Virtual Console? Third party support? Media apps?

Game continues to look great, love Min Min's design. I think it's fairly likely the roster is going to be only 8-10 characters, though--not that there's anything wrong with that for this first game, especially with how many potential arm combos there are.

Also hoping the first player mode that was mentioned way back when isn't just the target-punching minigame.

It's Min when you pronounce it as Cantonese.
