Nintendo unveils first official Switch bundle with Splatoon 2

The reason the game now displays in 720p docked and undocked was due to technical issues encountered shifting from one resolution to the other during development, according to what Microsoft said previously. Check out various new ARMS characters and their abilities below. They can use the Roller, Slosher, Splatling, and the new Dualies. Arms is one of the most anticipated titles for the Nintendo Switch. This choice dynamically changes how the arms attack and move, from boomerangs that go sideways to missiles that launch straight ahead.

Even the normal-looking gloves have hidden powers that deal elemental damage: some that freeze the enemy to slow them down, others that electrocute the target to disable their arms temporarily and finally the flame-powered gloves that knock the opponent to the ground. As you play and earn currency you'll be able to upgrade your favorite ARMS and purchase new ones.

The gameplay reveal suggests that there will also be a Volleyball-style mini-game added to the game as well. Two local players can also jump online with up to 10 total systems, bringing a max of 20 players per multiplayer lobby. The Nintendo Pro Controller will work just as well, as mentioned here. It is nice to have more color choices for the console. The first Global Testpunch (like Splatoon 2's Global Testfire) will take place between May 27th and 28th, while the second will take place between June 3rd and 4th.

Although we find it unbelievable that the Switch is getting game releases, we're extremely exhausted of the long wait times between them. Nintendo is also launching three new Amiibo for the game, including Neon Pink Inkling Girl, Neon Green Inkling Boy and a Neon Purple Inkling Squid.

Nintendo Switch owners can download cult PS4 hit Thumper from the eShop.
