Niche Gamer Plays is an ongoing video preview series where our staff take an in-depth and yet concise look at classic, current, and upcoming games across all current gaming platforms.
Yesterday we got a chance to play as best girl Twintelle, from Nintendo’s new competitive fighting game Arms. Using motion controls alone, we ended up earning 100 coins (The highest value seen during the entire stream so far) and managed to destroy the new boss battle they snuck into the game, Hedlok.
Hedlock appears to be a boss that takes over the body of another fighter, using their powers while also adding 4 extra arms, massive HP, and a extremely strong super attack.
Other events that we saw, were the target attack, and hoops modes, so if you are interested in those, take a watch.
If you have screen shots of your own adventures in the game, feel free to share them below. Arms is launching worldwide for the Nintendo Switch on June 16th. You can read about the entire Global Testpunch schedule here. You can also find us playing Arms for an hour here, from the first Global Testpunch.
