Guys nice find! Looks like the roster selection will be ace.
I'm so excited for a 50/50 gender selection.

Yeah, that's what I'm hoping for. Really sad I wasn't able to play it at PAX East but the Nintendo booth was miserable.

Minmin design is 10/10 though

Wait what? They failed? Wow, guess we were looking at a different video.

No, it'd be 10 with the 6 characters we already know about, plus these four:

The background colour changes with each character. You can see there are 4 distinct diagonal splits. Yellow, blue, black, green.

The white one isn't a robot, it has the 'normal' swirl eyes.

I mean they did show the different elements and some of the glove types but for some reason I still feel that gameplay lacks depth. Maybe it's just hard to show in a video rather than actually playing it.

Well, so far they have confirmed:

VS Mode
2 vs 2 Mode
Training Mode
Break the Targets.
6 confirmed characters, 4 "teased" characters.
Costumizable fighters with hidden depth
Mentions of "Single Player modes"

For a fighting game it already looks as robust as SFV was at launch.

I thought this at first but decided nope, if you look closely at the video you can see each character has the same size portrait going across the bottom. If that's her glove then it means her portrait is twice the size of the others.

Don't know why it looks like it lacks depth:

-The attack < block < grab triangle is in the game
-You can mix and match arm loadouts
-Each arm has different effects and elemental properties
-Arms have individual health which can be depleted and leave you without that arm for a while
-Each character has unique abilities
-You can attack with each arm individually as well as curve your shots
-You can charge up your punches which gives each arm/elemental type a second ability

All it's really missing in terms of traditional fighting game mechanics is the high/low mixup.

They all have swirl eyes except for mechanica, who's in a mech. Plus there's that one lab level that looks like it has blank arms characters in the test tubes.

Asking the real questions I see! This makes me wonder though, who is building them? And why is Mechanica allowed in the ring?

I wanna see what those single player modes. I want something substantial like the content netherrealm puts into their fighting games.

I thought I was seeing some cool things like the attack arcs and the now introduced glove affinities that are probably setups for combos and/or wakeup/recovery pressure.

Zoning in the game already looks pretty interesting to me.

As long as it's not a hassle to setup, it'll probably at least be side tournament status at Smash tournies or something to that effect.

(which is probably more players than a KOF tournament outside of Asia Kappa)

Come on Nintendo, please make a Just Dance style Rythm Single player mode that teaches players how to fight. It would be perfect for Arms (and the regular release of tracks/levels would be a great way to incorporate paid DLC without affecting game balance)

I'd keep your expectations low if you want this to rival the content of a Netherrealm fighter. Even Splatoon had light single player content outside of the story.

It doesn't have to match them, some kind of story/adventure mode plus robust arcade. I don't think that's too much to ask for a full price game.

I have a really hard time seeing that bottom of the screen as moving through alt costumes rather than the character roster, especially when none of them look like alt costumes for any of the other characters. The woman certainly isn't a costume for Ribbon Girl or any of the other female characters when she has a completely different skin tone.

Damn, this looks like a game with the potential for a lot of depth, if the interchangeability of arms doesn't wreck the character individuation too much.
