    Not sure how I feel about Byte functionality and not sure about Cobra looks. I can see Twintelle being a smash character, considering she has regular arms.

    I like how they just woke up someday with arms and not just born that way. lol Now we need a psychic character.

    ARMS... Splatooning it up again. Except it looks nowhere as fun as Splatoon.

    But hey, it's got testfires. I'll try it.

    I was already sold on ARMS and Splatoon 2, but now I'm more sold-er.
    O'Haire should be a fighter in ARMS so I can kick his ass

    I can see they both gonna fail hard, Switch will sink to the bottom this gen and Nintendo will finally go full third-party like Sega.

    I was extremely pleased with the direct, at first I thought they were going to have about 5 characters but they managed to fit 10 in, with more coming out eventually :)

    I will definitely be picking up the game eventually. (and when I somehow manage to make the motion controls work with the limited space I have.)

    So far i only have 3 games on switch and this is gonna be the next 2 major upcoming games besides Ultra street fighter 2? I would buy puyo puyo tetris if i wasn't so bad at it since is $30, but i did really want street fighter, but not for $40, another 30 Year anniversary ruined. :hateit:
