Here’s a closer look at the chakram weapon from ARMS

ショックのアーム「チャクラム」!古来のニンジャ用武具を、最新テクノロジーで量産化!薄く鍛え上げられた円月輪型のアームは、鋭いカーブを描いてのびーる!チャージすると高速回転して、サイズアップが可能です! pic.twitter.com/8lzZZUewhA— ARMS協会広報アカウント コブッター (@ARMS_Cobutter) April 24, 2017The last Nintendo Direct we got gave us an up close and personal look at some of the fighters and weapons we can expect to see in ARMS, but now the Japanese ARMS Twitter account is sharing more info. This time we have a peek at a new color scheme for Ninjara, one of the ARMS fighters.Also included is a closer look at how the Chakram ARM weapon works, especially with how it returns to you like a boomerang or… a chakram. It seems as though Nintendo is taking the same approach to promoting ARMS that they did with Splatoon, featuring the individual weapons up close and personal beforehand so we have a good idea of what everything does before we play it.Hopefully Nintendo will hold some global stress test events for ARMS the same way they did for Splatoon.

ARMS looks way better in tournaments

Since Nintendo debuted ARMS, an upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive fighter, I’ve been keeping my eye on what’s been going on within that community. The game looks amazing with its diverse roster of characters, yet each showing somehow doesn’t really make the game look too interesting. Turns out, I should’ve been watching the ARMS Invitational. In February, Nintendo invited members of the fighting game community to play ARMS in a tournament. Seems harmless enough, right? Right. However, it resulted in a far better showing than any footage Nintendo has released thus far. Just take a look at the video above. The build that was on display at the invitational appears to be old, so we don’t get to see recent additions such as Min Min or the different arm types. Fortunately, Nintendo has another ARMS invitational scheduled for April 29-30. Hopefully this means a more recent build filled with interesting combos and strategies for us to digest. ARMS launches exclusively on the Nintendo Switch June 16th. Thus far we’ve only seen footage using the Joy-Cons motion controls, but Nintendo assures that you’ll be able to play without motion controls too. READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

You can use the Joy-Con controllers in any configuration, including a single Joy-Con, attached to the Switch unit, inside a Joy-Con grip, or with one Joy-Con in each hand. The latter is the most common way to play the game. Here’s a quick rundown of how to control the game using the Joy-Con in each hand setup. Punch – Move the Joy-Con forward according to which hand.
