ARMS gameplay and new alternate costumes unveiled at Niconico Chokaigi 2017

A few days ago, we announced that Nintendo would be hosting a special ARMS tournament during Niconico Chokaigi 2017 in Japan (April 29th & 30th). During this event, 128 contestants fight in the upcoming Nintendo’s colourful ARMS, mostly to showcase the game since prizes aren’t that great (t-shirts, stickers, bandana). Well, the first day of competition under the dome of the Makuhari Messe Convention Center wrapped up a few hours ago, and we can have a look at hours of ARMS gameplay thanks to a recording from Youtube user ThemeofJudea.

Aside from the fact that you’ll see Japanese players fight the heck of each other with great skills, this footage reveals new alternative outfit skins for four fighters: Ribbon Girl, Ninjara, Master Mummy & Spring Man. What’s also interesting is that the costume shown for Ribbon Girl isn’t the same one as showcased by Japanese ARMS Twitter account (here). Which can only mean that fighters will have several (unlockable?) alternate costumes. Oh and there’s also footage showing the freshly revealed character Helix.
