Full Video Presentation

2v2 Mode Announced
Mix and Match Weapons
Elemental Type System
New Character: Min Min

That wire between the two characters is probably just identifying your team mate and relative position.

EDIT: That healing item might be for everyone vs activating it for your own team and you have to push the opponent out of the healing zone.

I'm surprised they only showed one new character, seems like the character count at release might be on the low side of things.

Also I think this game will heavily benefit from a testfire (Warm-Up Match?), this is one of those games that you need to feel to truly appreciate.

2v2 is going to be sick. Between this, Spla2oon, and Gundam Versus this summer, my gaming summer is set. :D

Min Min is the new hotness too.

I called it releasing after E3. No way it was gonna release in May, too close to MK8D.

IDK if they will announce more characters...but the wide range customizations alone seems to redeem the low count.

I want to find out more about the modes to see how much content it has. It seems like a ton of fun but I need more than just an arena mode.

I like the yellow joycon. Surprised about the battery pack. Thought the current battery life were solid. I wonder how much it changes the ergonomics.

I was one of the people who did not see 2v2 when the game was announced.

So I'm eating crow on that.

I thought the camera and movement wouldn't allow for it. But here it is. Although it does loko a tad hectic, but fun. That purple stage too.

2 v 2 is surprising given the controls based on circling and auto camera, but I guess they have a way to work it.

There will probably be 8-10 characters, which is just enough I think.

I'm sure they're purposefully saving a few reveals for e3.

So, considering that you need to move the Joy-cons with your arms as if you were boxing, if ARMS becomes an eSports game, this game will become the first eSport game where you are doing some sport while playing, haha.

If they use any time at E3 for ARMS, they've already fucked up. E3 should be for games in the future, not those imminently releasing.

Anyone who was expecting a May release date is just silly. It was obviously not going to make it considering they're releasing Mario Kart in late April. That is meant to be the May title because ARMS couldn't be done in time for it.

Probably gonna get a Treehouse Live-segment at least. Would not rule out it being a short part of their E3 presentation as well.

They fucked up by promoting it at the biggest annual gaming event days before it launches?
