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!

Splat Brella Releasing Tomorrow for Splatoon 2

One of Splatoon’s unique new weapons is releasing tomorrow, the Splat Brella. This shotgun like weapon is perfect for close encounters, and holding fire will open up the parasol acting like a nifty shield. That’s not all, hold the brella open long enough will launch it forwards. Use this for a sneak attack… your enemy won’t know what splat them!

2016 – The Year Ahead

Hello Buzzers,

It’s now nearly a month into the new year and it should hopefully be a good one for Nintendo with the 30th Anniversary of Zelda, the 20th for Pokémon, the unveiling of Nintendo NX, the new Nintendo accounts system, and so much more. I would first like to apologise for the inactivity over the past two months. I’m going to be honest, even though Christmas has been rather busy, I haven’t quite had the motivation to do much with NintyBuzz, but never fear, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to try and gain this motivation back, and in doing so, we have some exciting plans to enforce over the coming months.

Unfortunately, I’m not quite ready to discuss these plans quite yet as it all depends on some confirmations and whether I can find a new paying job; I recently quit my old one back in December for various reasons. Something I will divulge though is that I have some exciting new features, with the possibilities of some competitions, planned for the both Anniversary of Zelda. I hope for these to start next month.

I also plan on hosting some new tournaments in 2016, ones which I promise will work, I will admit that the Smash Bros. Tourney I started last year was poorly planned and it was more of an experiment, if anything.

That’s it for now, I hope everyone had a good Christmas and new year!
Leon

Splatoon – Is Locked Content Upon Release Good?

Splatoon is Nintendo’s unique take on the shooter genre (a game which we gave an 8.5 in our review). Those of you who got hold of the game from launch may remember that Splatoon was a bit lacking in content for the online multiplayer. The game launched only with one online mode and two maps. On a weekly basis, Nintendo has been unlocking new content for the game however, this ranged from new weapons to new maps, and even some new modes.

Was this idea of locking away a lot of content from launch beneficial for Splatoon though? Find out what we think after the break!
