ARMS Global Testpunch – “Warm-Up” practice mode can be played outside of event times with a trick
Posted on 17 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 0 comments | 0 Likes
The ARMS Global Testpunch demo is mostly nonfunctional outside of active hours. Yet Reddit user NefariousSquid discovered one way that you can continue playing the “Warm-Up” practice mode even when the servers are down.
Assuming you already have save data where you’ve progressed past the tutorial, simply follow these steps:
- On your Nintendo Switch, go to System Settings -> Internet -> Internet Settings -> [your network] -> Change Settings.
- Enable proxy settings, and change the server address to
126.96.36.199(or some other fake address).
- Save, then open the ARMS Global Testpunch.
- Select Party Match, select a character, then go to Warm-Up.
After 2 minutes and 30 seconds, you’ll receive an error message. It’s fine though, since you can just go right back in and continue practicing.
Capcom COO’s Switch comments fully clarified and translated

Japanese publication Toyo Keizai recently spoke with Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto. Switch was one topic that came up during the discussion, and it’s actually something that we already covered a couple of days ago.
Since there has been some confusion about what was actually said, we decided to translate Tsujimoto’s full comments. Our understanding is he does not actually state explicitly that Ultra Street Fighter II will directly influence Capcom’s support for Switch, including how it sells.
In any case, on with the translation:

Hoops is replacing V-Ball in the ARMS Global Testpunch next week
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 11 Comments | 0 Likes
This week’s ARMS Global Testpunch has come to a close. However, it will be returning next week with another round of sessions. When it does come back, it’ll be bringing in something new.
During an ARMS Global Testpunch stream promoted by Nintendo, it was confirmed that Hoops will be replacing V-Ball. That does actually make sense. Hoops was specifically referenced in the demo’s eShop listing, so players were wondering why it wasn’t available this weekend. Now we have the answer.
Rumor: Nintendo increasing Switch production, targeting 18 million units by March 2018
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch | 80 Comments | 0 Likes
A new report from Financial Times claims that Nintendo is increasing production of Switch. The outlet’s report is based on information obtained from “people close to the company”. With demand not being met and consumers becoming frustrated, production is apparently seeing a boost.
Financial Times says Nintendo “is now targeting Switch hardware production of 18m units for the 12 months ending March 2018.” Nintendo previously set a forecast of ten million units for the current financial year.
For its part, Nintendo is denying an increase of Switch’s production “to that level”. Since its forecast has already been determined, it would be unlikely for the company to come out any say anything official to Financial Times.
