Hopefully ARMS Becomes A Franchise, Says Producer
Plus, there is more to the game than we have seen.
Nintendo’s next big upcoming game for the Switch is ARMS, their wacky, zany take on the fighting game genre that is due out in June. It is Nintendo’s first new IP targeted at core gamers since Splatoon launched on the Wii U two years ago. And Splatoon went on to be successful enough to spawn a franchise- something that ARMS Producer Kosuke Yobuki hopes happens with this game, too.
“It would be like a dream for this to become a franchise spanning decades, but right now, only a small number of people around the world know about ARMS: those who closely follow new games and technology,” he said in an interview with EDGE (via WCCFTech). “First, I’d like those people to play ARMS and have fun with it. This game offers a brand new playstyle, brand new characters and brand new strategic gameplay.”
Confirming our suspicions from yesterday, he also confirmed that what we have seen of ARMS is only a fraction of what the final game will probably have. “The fighters we’ve announced are just a fraction of what’s to come. We’ll be introducing fighters all the time, with all sorts of abilities.”
ARMS is due out on June 16 on Nintendo Switch exclusively- will it take off like Splatoon did? That is something that remains to be seen for now.
