Watch Arms’ Zany Crew Spring Into Action

Arms is not your typical boxing league. Fighters sport spring-loaded limbs that allow them to punch opponents from across the ring, special gloves let them set each other on fire, and one of the challengers is a mummy. With its newly-introduced quirky characters and a diverse arsenal of weapons, Nintendo's upcoming 3D fighting game puts a new spin on motion-controlled brawling.

The cast of Arms brims with colorful personality in the new character trailer below. Comprised of a springy everyman, peppy popstar, brooding ninja, undead menace, and mechanical genius, everyone brings their own unique fighting style to the ring. Whether it's Ribbon Girl's aerial acrobatics or Ninjara's smoke bomb teleportation, all the boxers have something that gives them an edge over their competitors.

Combined with these individual powers are six specialized gloves boasting different effects. The Toaster weapon lights opponents on fire and deals continuous damage, while Sparky temporarily stuns them with electricity. Players can mix and match powers by wearing different glove types on their left and right hands. This adds a layer of experimentation to the combat as fighters test combinations like the Slapamander and Megaton or Boomerang and Revolver.

YouTube Series Man At Arms Forges League Of Legends’ Nameless Blade

The modern-day blacksmiths of the Man At Arms: Reforged team have released a video of their latest video game-inspired project: deadly assassin Yasuo's iconic sword from League of Legends.

The Nameless Blade is a katana with motifs reflecting Yasuo's ability to control wind. With their signature attention to detail, the smiths of Baltimore Knife and Sword faithfully recreate the unusually large katana while adding nods to the game and character along the way, such as a visual effect on the blade (known as a hamon) that looks like blood splatter in reference to Yasuo's past.

Man At Arms Forges Real-Life Replicas Of For Honor’s Weapons

Ubisoft's For Honor released this past week. The game's unique world where samurais, knights, and vikings collide makes for a mix of interesting close-combat weapons. YouTube show Man At Arms: Reforged, a video series that builds replicas of pop-culture weapons, has recently teamed up with Ubisoft to forge real-life versions of For Honor's Viking Dane Axe and Nodachi Sword.

The Viking Dane Axe is wielded by the Raider faction of vikings, and the katana-style blade the Nodachi Sword is used by the Kensei samurai faction.

The Dane Axe is a two-handed weapon that is both massive and deadly. In the video below, the Man at Arms team shows how it can easily break apart a cement block. The Nodachi Sword is a narrow but long blade, and Man at Arms puts an incredible amount of detail in its creation. For example, the team smears clay delicately on the blade to prevent chipping during combat.

Check out the videos for yourself below.

Arms Brings Motion-Controlled Boxing To Nintendo Switch This Spring

It's not quite Punch-Out!!, but one of the first-announced games for the Nintendo Switch certainly channels its spirit, albeit with a long-range twist.

Arms is a fighting game played on a small three-dimensional field. Holding the Switch Joycon controllers in a thumbs-up position, players make punching motions with their hands to throw punches at each other from a distance. Each character's arms stretch to hit opponents from afar, similar to Dhalsim in Street Fighter. You can thrust the controller forward to do a straight, or twist it sideways to do a hook, which will catch opponents on the move more easily.

The game looks to offer much more mobility than Nintendo's last boxing title (the subgame in Wii Sports), however. Players can move by titling the Joycons, dash around the map and guard at will, and press the Joycon's shoulder buttons to jump.

Arms also looks to feature several character with different movesets. Along with Spring Man and Ribbon Girl, the game's first trailer showed off a few other characters, including a woman in a yellow mech suit. Each character also looks to have a special attack, which look to vary between characters. Spring Man's for example, launched a volley of blows in short succession.

You'll be able to play the game solo against computer opponents, split-screen using two sets of Joycons, and using two Switch consoles locally. Arms is set to release this Spring.
