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

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.
ARMS has items that appear each round
Posted on 2 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
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.
