A potential knockout

Nintendo opened its press conference for the Switch console by showcasing two new games, neither of which feature the company’s iconic characters. The first is the graphics-free motion game 1-2 Switch. The second is Arms, a colorful motion-controlled boxing game.

Dubbed “the extendable arm fight game,” Arms is being promoted as the newest addition to Nintendo’s expanding roster of characters. The game is built around competitive local multiplayer, allowing for split-screen gaming on-the-go. Arms is scheduled for release sometime this spring.
