Could ARMS be Getting a New Character?

Nintendo’s new take on the fighting game genre may see another new character added to the roster soon. In the latest update trailer posted by the video game publisher (see below), fans can catch a glimpse of what appears to be a robot version of the game’s hero, Spring Man.

New Badge System

Also coming with the update is a new “badge” system that will award players for completing specific challenges. For example, one will be awarded for completing a tough run through the campaign or playing a certain amount of fights with one character. Nintendo was not clear about a release date but the trailer made it clear it will be coming later this month. This article will be updated when the launch date is announced, so don’t forget to check back!

Nintendo certainly hasn’t been shy when it comes to releasing free updates for their popular new brawler. The last update saw a new clown type character, Lola Pop, enter the ring along with Max Brawler in the update before her. New stages have also been added throughout the game’s lifecycle, including Sparring Ring and Villa Dolce and shows that the company has no plans to slow down support for the game. Training exercises were also added so that fans could practice their skills and moves for online play, so if you put down ARMS, now is a great time to throw the gloves back on.

This announcement comes in the wake of Nintendo’s plan to increase production of the Switch to 2 million units per month to meet the console’s high demand. The Switch is one of the most unique console’s we’ve ever played here at Gigamax so if you’re able to get your hands on one, don’t miss out! We’ll be keeping our eyes on all the latest information so be sure to keep checking back for all the latest in gaming news.

Nintendo Reveals More Details for Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon

Nintendo Reveals More Details for Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon

During the most recent Nintendo Direct event the company had plenty of details to share for Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon, the latest game in the main Pokemon series. The biggest announcement out of the Direct itself was the addition of two new “Ultra Beasts” which are wacky looking creatures from another dimension that took the form of Sun/Moon’s legendaries.

Details Are Scarce 

Nintendo was sparse on the details for the announcement revealing little other than the code names and pictures for the beasts. The first of the two new Pokemon is UB-Burst, a clown like monster resembling something out of your worst nightmares. Don’t worry, Ultra Moon gets its own monstrosity known as UB-Assembly that is reminiscent of a giant stone tower.

Much like the other Pokemon games third entry, Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon will focus on the end game Legendary that can be caught. This time around it’s Necrozma and he has a problem with Solgaleo and Lunala not being under his mind control. Fortunately, this means that players will be able to catch new forms of the aforementioned legendaries. In Ultra Sun trainers can catch Dusk Mane Necrozma and in Ultra Moon Dawn Wings Necrozma.

Wrapping It All Up

To round out their announcements, Nintendo detailed an exclusive move for the preorder bonus Pokemon, Dusk Form Lycanroc. The new Z-Move is known as Splintered Stormshards, this rock type move will be available to all forms of Lycanroc and can eliminate terrain as well as inflict damage. To secure this new Pokemon players will have to preorder Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon before January 10th to get a special Rockruff that will evolve into Dusk Form Lycanroc.

Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon releases on November 17th for the Nintendo 3DS. Players who also purchase the virtual console edition of Pokemon Gold/Silver will receive a special edition as a free gift for their copy of Pokemon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, or Ultra Moon.

The Nintendo Switch May Not Make It Home for the Holidays

The Nintendo Switch May Not Make It Home for the Holidays

During a recent speaking event, CEO of Nintendo America Reggie Fils-Aime said that the company could not guarantee the availability of the Switch this Holiday season. As of now, the executive has elaborated further on what he meant by the statement.

Speaking to The Financial Times, Fils-Aime said that the console’s supply chain was “complex” going on to say that there are multiple factors that could be considered “choke points.” Some analysts in Japan are calling out Alps Electric in particular, who makes the necessary components for the Joy-Con controller system. Although, the CEO himself wouldn’t clarify which parts of the supply chain were holding production back.

“There is not one choke point, there are multiple choke points,” Reggie Fils-Aime explained. “I won’t go into any more detail but it’s not just one component. I’m going to make millions of these units to flow into the marketplace. But what I don’t know is what the demand is going to be. And there is a potential that demand is going to outstrip supply.” (http://bit.ly/2ePLXLc)

Keep Your Fingers Crossed

The executive moved on to say that the company wants to avoid any situation where a consumer wants a Switch and can’t get one. But unfortunately, production realities and the extremely strong demand for the console are making it impossible for him to guarantee that everyone will get their hands on the system.

Fils-Aime finished the interview by stating “We don’t want to have a consumer disappointed by not being able to get one for the holiday season. But managing that complex supply chain is a challenge,” but this has left many Nintendo fans with the feeling that getting a Switch this year is almost hopeless.

Nintendo has previously stated their intention was to ramp up production this holiday season but it could prove difficult with suppliers creating issues with previously agreed upon terms.  Currently, the company has modeled 10 million Switch sales for the current fiscal year, which ends in March 2018. As for sales, the latest data shows that the console has sold over 4.7 million units worldwide.

Hopefully, Nintendo is able to increase production enough so that most can get the system but unfortunately not even the CEO can be overly optimistic. The holidays are typically rough on retail and new hardware usually sells the fastest. The bright side of the production issue is that this shows the Switch’s growing popularity and how Nintendo is recovering after the disaster that was the Wii U.

The Master Trials: Breath of the Wild DLC Out Now

The Master Trials: Breath of the Wild DLC Out Now

Are you itching to jump back into Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild? Well a perfect opportunity just presented itself, with the release of the game’s first DLC pack, The Master Trials. The DLC pack can be purchased on the Switch’s EShop right now for $20 in the season pass bundle. Currently there is no way to purchase The Master Trials by itself but hopefully Nintendo will split the two DLC’s in the future. The pack is 456 MB and is available for both the Switch and Wii U versions of the game with the latter coming in at 3.7 GB.

It’s Time For A Challenge

At the forefront of the DLC is a tougher difficulty mode that adds its own save slots so players don’t have to wipe their precious save files. The Master Trials also adds 5 new outfits into the game for fans to wear while adventuring through Hyrule. Included in these handy pieces of clothes are the Korok Mask, Majora’s Mask, Midna’s Helmet, Tingle’s Outfit, and the phantom armor. Players can get this armor by finding the 8 treasure chest that “mysteriously” appear throughout the open world. Also included in the DLC is a Travel Medallion item that lets players set a warp point to teleport back to whenever they so choose. The new content also tracks a path of your journey for those that are curious or lost.

Another huge addition in The Master Trials is the addition of a 45 room challenge dungeon known as The Trial of the Sword. Much like The Cave of Ordeals from previous Zelda entries, players are tasked with clearing floor after floor of monsters that increases with difficulty on every level. Trial takers begin the ordeal naked and unarmed and need to fight their way to the bottom with only the weapons and armor made available during the challenge. When a player completes the challenge they will unlock a version of the master sword that is fully powered up.

More To Come

The Master Trials DLC is the first of two expansion packs that Nintendo announced for Breath of the Wild. The second upcoming expansion is named ‘The Champions Ballad’, expected to release this holiday season. Players can expect a new story chapter in The Champions Ballad centered around the four champions from Link’s era Daruk, Mipha, Revali, and Urbosa. Nintendo gave a brief glimpse into the second DLC pack at E3 2017 which you can see below. We are pumped to have a new reason to revisit Breath of the Wild and will keep a close on eye on any updates Nintendo offers for the second DLC, so be sure to keep check back with gigamaxgames.com.

ARMS – Nintendo Switch Playlist

ARMS – Nintendo Switch Playlist with Gigamax Games

ARMS, Nintendo’s new I.P., is finally here and it was well worth the wait. This intense fighter is truly a unique mix of mechanics and chaos. Outfitted with springy arms, the goal is to knock out your opponent before they have the chance to take you out. Jumping around the selection of arenas, players fling their arms at a distance and curve the punches to eliminate their opponent. Barriers located around the ring offer players the chance to wrap their enemies arms up and counter with a devastating blow.

Multiplayer Modes and More!

That was only one of the multiplayer options the game has to offer. V-ball and Hoops are the other game types available. V-ball is literally volleyball but instead of a ball, players play with a bomb on a timer. Once the short timer ends, the orb drops wherever it’s located and a point is scored. Players fight, not with each other, but to keep the ball in the air and on their opponents side of the net.

Hoops, a Gigamax favorite is a variation of half-court basketball, without the ball. Players fight for the opportunity to grab their opponent and either slam-dunk their enemy for two points or launch them across the arena for their chance at a three-pointer.

These game modes and the variety of fighters offer gamers a chance to spend hours throwing extended punches while never getting bored. ARMS truly shines when played with a friend, providing some nail-biting matches. Nintendo has done it again, developing an addictive fighter with some loveable characters.
