I really want an action/platformer out of ARMS. Your arms are the grappling hook. Use a well controlled punch to navigate around laser beams and hit a button in the end. Punch downwards to be propelled in the air. I know this probably wouldn't be a story mode fitting for ARMS: The Fighting Game but I hope the franchise expands later.

To me the character designs look very old school, like Osamu Tezuka characters. Especially Spring Man.

It's why i only have like 20 hours of playtime in Smash 4 and like thousands on melee and brawl.

For awhile, my headcanon was that Spring Man was actually Little Mac rebuild as a cyborg. Think of it like The Six Million Dollar Man.

I believe Nintendo has realised how important that stuff has become nowadays. They need unique characters with fleshed out stories so the fans fall in love with them.

That's why I think the Splatoon squids have a huge disadvantage here. But they could always introduce unique characters here as well.

That's because that's how Biff sounds in Japanese. his deep voice is a western change.

And like with Dragon Ball, I prefer that deeper voice instead.

Considering the brief tie-in that Splatoon got, perhaps an ARMS manga?

I mean, ARMS' characters have much more potential for an actual serialised story than Splatoon does, where the player character is a blank slate. With the ARMS cast, they each have specific styles, motivations, and possible interests to bounce off of one another in a story.

That said, some shorts or a more developed story mode could go a long way too.

It's not really a game that I could see them adding a story mode to. It's just not that kinda game.

You basically have Arcade Mode (with varying difficulties) and Survival Mode here. Is it enough? Eh...not, really, especially since it's very hard. It does need something else, though.

One possibility there would be building around the arcade mode. Ie, adding little cutscenes or dialogue interactions before, during, and after fights so that you at least get a sense of how the fighters feel about each other - not unlike what many other fighting games do.

It would be way more fun if the backstory would be totally dark and the exact opposite of the funny and colorful characters. Make it gritty just to stand out against other Nintendo games. Make it as dark as Akira...:D

Yeah, that could work too. It doesn't have to be something super fancy.

I would like that, sure. Not happening though, even if Akira was supposedly an influence. :P

Today, I learned that Nintendo is aware of "Because Nintendo", but does not seem to comprehend its proper usage.

"Nintendo focuses on game design over story" is not a "Because Nintendo" decision.

"Nintendo produces 10x more Smash controllers than Gamecube controller adapters"
"Nintendo does not include proprietary AC adapter with system'"
"Nintendo says online sucks, GBA Link Cable is where it's at"
"Nintendo requires cellphone for voice chat"

These are "Because Nintendo" headlines.

Ha,Ha incredible response but yeah they seem to be taking the overwtch route, wich makes sense, the mario kart team never had to flesh characters before for obvious reasons. It is interesting how splatoon and Arms handle their multiplayer and single player content. In Arms all modes are avaliable in single player and multiplayer while in splatoon hero mode is exclusively single player while Both salmon run and turf war/rank are multiplater only.

Lore is why the game had a middling reception.

Add some lore and this game is easily a 10/10.
