ARMS

Another announcement from Nintendo at Gamescom this year was that ARMS will be getting a new character. In addition, there will be a free Global Testpunch demo event this weekend, August 25th through August 27th.

The new character is named Lola Pop. She is a clown with a unique personality and performs on the street. Her key ability is to inflate her body similar to a balloon. This will help to improve defense. In addition to Lolo Pop, Nintendo is adding three new Arms and a new stage to the game as well. This character and stage were teased about a week ago as we previously reported.

Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch Bundle Announced For North America

Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch Bundle

Nintendo has announced a Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch bundle for North America. The bundle was previously available in Japan & Europe, but until now it hadn’t been confirmed to be coming to North America. The Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch bundle will be available starting on September 8th, but there’s a catch.

It seems that Nintendo has decided to make the bundle exclusive to Walmart. In addition to the Switch system, the bundle will include a digital copy of Splatoon 2, a carrying case, and the green & pink Splatoon 2 themed Joy-Con controllers. If you’re interested in picking one up, the price is $379.99 (about $80 more than the standard Switch SKU). So you’re basically getting the game and carrying case for free, since pairs of Joy-Con controllers retail for $79.99 by themselves.

Here’s a couple images Nintendo released of the bundle.
