It will. Nintendo has said so.

Really looking forward to this. Hopefully the traditional controls are good, am probably going to buy a Pro Controller around the time this releases so I can play multiplayer with one person using that and one with the Joy-Con.

Yeah they are.

two or 3 rooms of hitting switches over and over and one real enemy does not make a dungeon.

For every character they showed I thought "that look OP". So probably the balance will be pretty good. Another thing that reminds me of Splatoon; tons of things that initially feel overpowered so it turns out nothing is.

Mummy and Mechanica are the only characters so far that I feel have a lot of advantages over the other characters.

I was hoping for a release date, but I guess this is late May or something and not April at this point.

Hoping we get a release date for this game soon, it's my most anticipated game on the Switch at the moment.

April is Mario Kart month. All of it.

Yeah, there's a less than zero chance that ARMS comes out in April.

If you would've skimmed through the thread you would've seen that no one knows, lol

Late May or June is a safe guess.

Movement speed, punching speed, and power all vary between characters. Characters are more than just their special mechanics.

Yeah. It's crazy. Next month we're getting Mario Kart! And apparently Xeno2 is also happening this year? (I still don't believe it.) I'm just prepping for Disgsaea 5

Unless someone was expecting a new megaton game released every 2 weeks, the release schedule is for the year is damn solid imo.

Especially if you include the Smash and Pokemon ports rumoured to be anounced at E3. Or the Fire Emblum Mousu

I can't take motion control seriously, it might be fun just messing around but overall it's just not a very reliable way to master the combat.

There is an uncanny level of freakness that makes me uncomfortable with these characters, where are their limbs? I know it's the title of the series, but are they going to address why the characters don't have arms? There is a storyline that gets into it right?

It is freaking me out.

That's an oversimplification to take them out of your weird, arbitrary definition of what a "dungeon" is. Regardless, it's a dumb deflection that didn't belong in this thread.

So when do we think this will actually drop then? Is this Nintendos big late May release or mid-June?

I even googled the definition of 'Spring' and we have:

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/learning...s-spring-start

1 March 2017 is the first day of the meteorological spring

20 March 2017 is the first day of the astronomical spring

Do we have precedent in what Nintendo consider Spring?

Pre-ordered and can't wait.

Nintendo consider June part of Spring so thats the last possible month
