ARMS has items that appear each round

Posted on May 14, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

All sorts of information has been coming out about ARMS from this month’s issue of EDGE. Another tidbit previously unknown is that the game features items that appear each round. One powers up your super, one heals you, and another is a time bomb that you and your opponent can hand off back and forth with punches until it explodes, similar to a game of hot potato.

We did actually get a look at items during the most recent Nintendo Direct, but it went largely unnoticed. Pictured above, when you punch the drone, the item is dropped.

Keep in mind that items aren’t mandatory. You can turn them off in the options menu if you’d rather play a more traditional match.

      It is like “no-items” competitive mode in Smash.

    That’s interesting :). Reminds me of Doom’s supply robot.×250/69061701.jpg
