Nintendo had a big blowout of ARMS this week with its own dedicated Nintendo Direct. It really touched on almost everything we’ve wanted to know about the game. New characters were revealed, new modes were shown, and we even found out about ARMS Global Testpunch – an opportunity to try things out before launch.

Has Nintendo sold you on ARMS now, or were you already skeptical? Perhaps you’re waiting until the ARMS Global Testpunch until you really make up your mind. Who’s your favorite character? What mode interests you the most as of now? Share your thoughts about ARMS with us in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – May 2017

It was recently made known that, in Japan, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 would be out this fall. Bandai Namco has since confirmed the same window for North America as well.

The publisher just tweeted:

We don’t have any news for Europe just yet. However, the game will almost certainly be dropping this fall in PAL regions as well.


Toys “R” Us restocked Switch at its stores across the United States yesterday. Over at Best Buy, the retailer will have units as well. Gray and neon units will apparently be on hand.

Best Buy’s Twitter page told one consumer the following:

If you’re planning on going to Best Buy tomorrow, you may want to show up before the store opens. You may also want to call ahead of time to confirm the restock.

New ARMS Global Testpunch details

Posted on 6 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 2 Comments | 0 Likes

Nintendo’s Japanese Twitter page and blog have a few extra details about ARMS Global Testpunch. The online demo will begin towards the end of next week.

To reiterate, seven fighters are included: Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Master Mummy, Ninjara, Mechanica, Min Min, and Helix. With each one, you can choose from their standard ARMS. It’s also possible to play the demo with one or two players with a single Switch unit. The ARMS Global Testpunch can be experienced with the Party Match mode, including V-Ball.

When connecting with players in lobbies, versus rules will be automatically selected. It also looks like there’s a “Warm Up” option and the ability to change your fighter while waiting.

NIS America published a demo for Disgaea 5 Complete on the Switch eShop this week. If you’re on the fence, it’s a good opportunity to try out the strategy RPG.

Some information was floating around that it’s possible to transfer progress over to the full game. But unfortunately, NIS America said on Twitter that it’s not actually possible. You can save in the demo itself, but data can’t be moved over to the retail release.

NIS America passed along the news on Twitter:


Nintendo ended this week’s ARMS Direct with a new trailer for Splatoon 2 highlighting Hero Mode, the game’s single-player campaign. The series’ Japanese Twitter account has since shared some additional details and images.

Marie is not only a member of Squid Sisters, but also agent 2 of New Squidbeak Splatoon. She is keeping a close watch on the Octarians while Cap’n Cuttlefish is away. As indicated by this week’s trailer, agent 4 does not know of the Squid Sisters.

V Jump has offered lengthy gameplay of Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. View the video below for 20 minutes of footage.

Another piece of significant information has been reported stemming from the April 2017 NPD report. According to Mat Piscatella, an analyst for the company, Mario Kart is the all-time best-selling racing franchise in the U.S.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the best-selling game in the U.S. last month despite being on the market for just two days. In that short period, over 460,000 physical units sold. With digital sales included, the total exceeds 550,000 units.
