Nintendo didn’t have a whole lot to say this year. With Nintendo Switch sales continuing to be the hottest ticket in the industry, right now, all they had to do was keep the hype train rolling their innovative console and its games.

So, I haven’t covered much of ARMS. Mostly because I’m jealous that I don’t have a Switch, and while ARMS looked like a whatever game, at first, it has most certainly won me over with its charming and over the top characters. The most of which is most definitely Twintelle, which Nintendo has released a gameplay trailer (seen above) for.
ARMS will release for the Nintendo Switch on June 16, 2017.
Nintendo has posted their schedule for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, per their usual E3 Page on the Official site. As with the last several years, Nintendo has opted to skip hosting a keynote, in favor of a Nintendo Direct that will air at 9am PT/11am CT/12pm ET on June 13, 2017. Once that is finished, the Nintendo Treehouse will air each day of the show, spotlighting the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, the new Nintendo 2DS XL (most likely), and many of the new games and titles being shown.
Nintendo will also be hosting two tournaments. On June 13, the 2017 Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational will begin, with squads of players from around the world competing. The next day, the first ARMS Open Invitational will be held. Both tournaments will be available for streaming online.
