ARMS is now available!
June 18, 2017, 02:22:30 AM by Link-NM
Nintendo newest game and franchise, ARMS, is now available on Nintendo Switch! More details in the press release below.



Quote from: Press Release
Revolutionary New Fighting Game ARMS Now Available for Nintendo Switch
Launch Comes on the Heels of Epic Tournament at E3


REDMOND, Wash., June 16, 2017 – To cap off a month of all things ARMS – highlighted by two popular Global Testpunch events and a livestreamed tournament this week at the E3 video game conference – Nintendo’s unique new fighting game is now available in stores and in Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch console. Since being revealed back in January, the fast-paced game starring fighters with extendable Arms has gained quite the following, with fans all over the world already debating their favorite characters and actively participating in the recent Global Testpunch demos to get a taste of what the game has to offer. And now the moment is here! The ARMS game is now available for everyone, even those with regular-sized arms, to enjoy.
 
Just this week, at the E3 convention in Los Angeles, Nintendo hosted a livestreamed ARMS competition that pit four expert competitive gamers from the fighting game community against E3 attendees who qualified during the event. The nail-biting competition was a huge hit (no pun intended), drawing crowds to Nintendo’s booth and thousands more online, resulting in Jamal M. being crowned the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational champion. Jamal M. was presented the coveted 2017 ARMS Open Invitational belt before taking on the game’s producer, Kosuke Yabuki, in a thrilling exhibition match.
 
“With ARMS, we are delivering a new and exciting type of game that takes advantage of everything Nintendo Switch can do,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The launch of ARMS kicks off a summer of competitive gaming for Nintendo Switch, with fun multiplayer games Splatoon 2 and Pokkén Tournament DX also launching over the next few months.”
 
ARMS is easy to pick up and play, but it has an incredible amount of depth for advanced players. In the game, players select one of 10 fighters with big personalities and even bigger Arms to battle other players in dynamic arenas. To add strategy to the battles, players can select two different Arms (one for the right and one for the left), each with unique specialties and abilities. Using the motion controls of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers, players can throw a punch with a flick forward, move around the stage by tilting the controllers in the desired direction or even execute a powerful throw by moving both hands forward at the same time. The controls are intuitive, engaging and easy for players of any age to learn. Players can even use the Joy-Con attached to the Joy-Con Grip or the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (sold separately) for a more traditional experience.
 
In addition to one-on-one fighting matches that can be played locally or online (Nintendo Account required, online services and features, including online gameplay, are free until the paid Nintendo Switch Online Service launches in 2018), ARMS is overflowing with multiple fun modes that stretch the limits of game-play options. In Team Fight, two players are tethered together and must team up to battle another team of two. Similar to volleyball, V-Ball is a mode that involves knocking an explosive ball into the opponent’s court. Hoops lets opponents shoot each other into a basketball net (or even dunk them for extra satisfaction). Several more modes are also available in the game, many of which can be played online. And using the versatility of Nintendo Switch, ARMS can be played at home or on the go. ARMS also will get continual support beyond the game’s launch, adding on even more fighters, stages and Arms at no additional cost.
 
ARMS is now available in stores and Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch at a suggested retail price of $59.99. A set of two Neon Yellow Joy-Con inspired by the colorful aesthetic of the game is also now available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. Players can pick them up to brighten up their ARMS game, or even to mix and match with other Joy-Con colors to personalize their Nintendo Switch system.

[PR] Nintendo Recap: First Day at E3 Adds Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
June 14, 2017, 02:36:10 AM by Link-NM

Quote from: Press Release
Nintendo Recap: First Day at E3 Adds Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions Game Announcement, New Inkling Champs

Nintendo’s activities at today’s E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles included the announcement of a remake of a classic Mario & Luigi game and the crowning of the winning team in the 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational.
 
Following a morning packed with new announcements, the Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 show included in-depth play-throughs of a variety of games for both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS systems. During the show, Nintendo announced that an updated version of the first game in the Mario & Luigi series was in development for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions contains all the fun gameplay and dialogue of the Game Boy Advance original, as well as an optional Easy mode for younger or more inexperienced players.
 
The game also includes a side story called Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, which tells the story of the game from the perspective of Bowser’s minions, led by Captain Goomba. Nintendo revealed that two new amiibo figures would be introduced: Goomba and Koopa Troopa. The new amiibo and the existing Boo amiibo figure will be compatible with the game. The amiibo, and the game, are scheduled to launch separately on Oct. 6.
 
Nintendo ended the day by making a splat-tastic mess with an international flair. Competitors from four different global regions (U.S., Japan, Europe and Australia/New Zealand) competed for world dominance in the 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational. “Deadbeat” from the United States emerged as the new global champions.
 
The four-person teams competed in a best-of-seven final round featuring Ranked Modes from the game. “Deadbeat” will get their name engraved on a sweet Splatoon 2 trophy and will have global bragging rights.
 
A sampling of other exclusive content revealed today during Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 included:

Fire Emblem Warriors: Colosseum mode offers different scenarios with Fire Emblem heroes facing off and highlighting their over-the-top moves and action. In this scenario, Xander, the crown prince of Nohr, storms Hoshido Castle on a mounted stead through a gauntlet of different Fire Emblem heroes, like Corrin, Marth and Chrom to an ultimate final showdown with Ryoma. Additionally, two new amiibo figures, Chrom and Tiki, will be compatible with the game.

Super Mario Odyssey: Members of the Nintendo Treehouse showcased live gameplay of an exclusive area not available in the show-floor demo, revealing new game-play mechanics, new capture targets and new ways of interacting with the environment. This lush, wooded kingdom showcased some of the surprises in store for players when Super Mario Odyssey launches on Oct. 27.

Metroid: Samus Returns: Earlier today, Nintendo announced a new Metroid game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems: Metroid: Samus Returns, a modern reimagining of the 1991 Game Boy adventure Metroid II: Return of Samus. Nintendo Treehouse members also announced two new amiibo figures – Samus Aran and Metroid – will be released as a set alongside the game. This game is also compatible with the Zero Suit Samus and Samus amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series. (amiibo functionality details will be revealed at a later date.) While supplies last, fans will also be able to purchase a special edition of the game, which includes a physical version of the game, a sound-selection CD featuring 25 tracks from across the Metroid franchise and a reversible title-sheet insert for the game case for a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 returns 10 a.m. PT on Wednesday. The day will include more live gameplay, game details and developer commentary, as well as two competitions. The 2017 Pokkén Tournament DX Invitational is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m., while the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. PT.
