During today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, we got a detailed look at a ton of the fighters in the upcoming ARMS for Nintendo Switch. The broadcast discussed the backstories and fighting styles of ten different characters, including three previously-unseen fighters. With ARMS coming out in less than a month, it’s great to finally have so much information about its characters and game modes.

Here’s a quick run-down of all the new characters that were revealed during the Direct:

  • Kid Cobra: A professional livestreaming snake who turned into a fighting champion. He’s a quick, lightweight fighter and an expert dasher. His three signature Arms are the Slamamander, the Hydra, and the Coolerang.
  • Byte and Barq: A fighting duo formed by a robot cop and his loyal dog. The player controls Byte, while Barq acts as an auto-attacker and assists with some special moves. Byte has three Arms: the Seekie, the Cracker, and the Bubb.
  • Twintelle: Originally a world-famous movie star. Twintelle uses her large pigtails as powerful weapons in battle, and she has the ability to slow down opponents’ punches. We got to see three of her Arms: the Chilla, the Parasol, and the Thunderbird.

Along with these new characters, we also got a much closer look at several other fighters, including Spring Man, Mechanica, Ninjara, Master Mummy, Ribbon Girl, Min Min, and Helix. To see all of these fighters in action, you can watch the videos below, which provide detailed looks at all ten combatants.
