Today’s ARMS Twitter update is fairly unremarkable, but worth checking out if you’re a fan of Mechanica. As it turns out, Mechanica’s workshop can actually be found on the recently revealed Scarp Yard stage.

In that workshop, you can find blueprints of the exoskeleton that Mechanica is using, alongside various other models and prototypes:

Hot on the heels of the game’s announcement last week, we now have the first trailer for One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition. The trailer gives a nice overview of the game’s world and gameplay mechanics. Check it out:

Nintendo has released a new Japanese television commercial for the Switch. The ad puts the focus on multiplayer games that were released recently or will be released shortly, like Minecraft, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Bomberman R and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers.

One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition was announed in the latest issue of Weekly Jump. ShonenGames now has a translated scan up, and in high quality to boot. See it below.

It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Dragon Quest XI on 3DS has now reached the top spot, and Splatoon 2 is back in the top five.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between April 20 and April 26.

A bit of off-screen Super Mario Odyssey footage has been making the rounds today. It doesn’t show true gameplay, but it does provide a look at a couple of areas in the game. What’s funny about this discovery is that the footage was actually shown during the Nintendo Switch Experience in Japan from January, but is only just being noticed now. In any case, watch the video below.

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.
