At the end of last week, we posted several character profiles for ARMS. The game’s Japanese website provided additional information on Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Ninjara, Master Mummy, Min Min, and Mechanica.
We took a look at the overviews ourselves, and noticed that there was some extra information not included in the original translation. Continue on below for the complete character profiles

Furious fighter with spring-shaped arms!
Acts like a goofball, but he’s no joke in the ring.
His indomitable spirit keeps him in a constantly charged state while he’s in a pinch, as he aims for the reigning champion’s belt!

The ideal person we bring in would be available Monday – Friday at the times listed above. That being said, we’re not entirely opposed to having two people tackle the position and split up the days. It’ll really come down to interest in the position, who’s applying, etc.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild players are finding ways to leave The Great Plateau early… sort of
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in Switch, Videos, Wii U | 9 Comments
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has very few restrictions. Even in the opening section, you have a huge area to explore – that being The Great Plateau.
The only limitation is that you need to complete a few tasks before leaving The Great Plateau. Once that’s done, you’ll be given Link’s trusty paraglider. It’s then that you’re free to leave and explore Hyrule to its fullest.
Capcom on choosing Ultra Street Fighter II for Switch, different features, character additions, more
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch | 17 Comments
A recent issue of Famitsu contained an interview about Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. The magazine caught up with assistant producer Tomoaki Ayano to learn more about the upcoming Switch game.
Ayano started out by discussing why this particular title was chosen for Switch. He explained that it’s Street Fighter’s 30th anniversary, so the thinking here was to provide an environment for longtime fans who have been supporting the series and want to play Street Fighter again as a way of saying thanks. Right at that time, Switch came into the picture. When thinking of a Street Fighter game that was on Nintendo consoles and very popular among the generation who are now parents, Street Fighter II came to mind.
Messhof: Nidhogg 2 on Switch “makes sense”
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 1 Comment
At the end of last year, we heard Messhof co-founder Kristy Norindr say that Switch and Nidhogg would be a “perfect” match. Creative director Mark Essen apparently feels the same way.
Gamereactor asked Essen about a potential version of the upcoming sequel, Nidhogg 2. He said in response: “Yeah, definitely, I mean it’s two players so it makes sense, simple control scheme, so…”
Nidhogg 2 launches later this year. If we hear anything official about a Switch version, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Video: Indie devs talk developing for Switch at EGX Rezzed
At EGX Rezzed earlier this month, a special Switch panel was held. Representatives from Dangerous Kitchen, Image & Form, Ghost Town Games, and Zoink Games stopped by to talk about developing indie games on the platform. The full recording is now available, and we have it below.
Bandai Namco revealed Namco Museum for Switch during this week’s Nintendo Direct. It was announced as an eShop title, but new evidence suggests that a physical release is in the cards as well.
Included with the official news about Namco Museum is a boxart image, shown above. Nintendo’s website also shows the boxart along with a $29.99 price point.
We reached out to Bandai Namco to clarify the situation, but have thus far not heard back. If Namco Museum is indeed getting a physical version, it wouldn’t be the only piece of incorrect information shared during the Nintendo Direct. Although Nintendo also said that Battle Chasers: Nightwar will come to Switch first, developer Airship Syndicate later clarified that it isn’t actually the case.
