Weekly European Nintendo Download – 10/05/18

It’s Thursday, which means that the Nintendo eShop is dropping some more digital goodies on the Nintendo eShops.

This week, there’s another opportunity to try out the stretchy fighter in the ARMS Sparring Demo, enter an atmospheric, puzzling world in The Fall, and more!

Find out what’s new after the break!


Prepare for a Competitive Filled Easter Weekend

It’s nearly Easter time, but this year, there will be a little more competition than your usual Easter egg hunt. This weekend there are two fantastic events that are being held by Nintendo to get you into the competitive spirit.

Starting from Friday, 30th March 2018, Nintendo will be hosting the Splatoon European Championships over at the Polymanga event in Switzerland. Professional squid squads from around Europe will be battling it out in the semi-finals to really put their tenta-skills to the test in the finals on Saturday, 31st March. The team who succeeds in the finals will then be invited to compete in the Splatoon 2 World Championship at E3!

That’s not all, Pearl and Marina will make an electronic appearance to perform in the Off the Hook concert, accompanied by a live band! Can’t afford the air fair all the way to Switzerland, let alone a ticket for the event? Never fear, Nintendo will be streaming all the action live on their Twitch and YouTube channels.

Want to get in on some competitive action of your own? Whether your an ARMS veteran who have yet to delve into the ring (remember, it’s still 33% off in the spring sale), why not download the ARMS Global Test Punch? Starting Saturday, 31st March 2018 until Monday 2nd April, Nintendo will be holding another special demo event for ARMS. So whether you want a taste of the stretchy action, or want some fresh competition, feel free to give it a whirl… or would that be punch?

Looking like it will be a competitive Easter after all!

Lola Pop joins ARMS in next Update

Lola Pop – a colourful clown – was announced as the latest ARMS fighter, alongside her new stage and three unique Arms.

A trailer released this morning shows off her ability to quickly inflate and deflate herself making for some interesting defensive gameplay. No names were given for her Arms, but the trailer showed some spinning nunchucks, a large shield and a grapple like device that ‘stamps’ the opponents view in three areas.

If you want to see this new content in action before release, check out Nintendo of Europe’s YouTube channel tomorrow at 10:00 GMT for a livestream of gameplay.

Nintendo also announced a third Testpunch is coming, and it’ll take place sooner than you think. Starting on Friday 25th August at 16:00 GMT and ending on Sunday 27th August at 21:00 GMT as another piece of free downloadable software from the eShop. Perfect for those yet to try it out!

New Arms Fighter Incoming

Last week, Nintendo of Japan’s Twitter page announced that the next ARMS update will include a brand new fighter, along with brand new ARMS. The same account just gave us a sneak peek to what we can expect.

Though the snippet of footage is blurry, we can make out that the new fighter could be likely to be female (thought we wouldn’t want to assume now, would we) and that one of their ARMS seems to twirl around in fashion. Additionally, from the rough translation, it seems their ARMS are actually distinctly part of the new fighter’s dress. This fighter will surely make the others look like they hit a fashion faux pas!

Haven’t picked up ARMS yet? Try reading our review to see what we thought!

Nintendo has platforming down, they have adventure RPGs down, and they have 2D fighting down, they even have third person shooters down. In comes ARMS, Nintendo’s latest new IP to take on the 3D fighter genre. Think Tekken cross between Stretch Armstrong, with that little added extra Nintendo flair, and you get ARMS.

Set in the not-so-distant future, fighters with extendable arms compete in boxing matches with an extra twist, to claim victorious in the ARMS Grand Pix. Will ARMS stretch its way to victory, or is it just a tangled mess? Find out in our review, after the break!
