Now that the Switch is out, all we need are more games on it to make it worthwhile. Luckily, Nintendo knows that and are bringing us ARMS, a fighting game that’s perfect for playing with friends during the summer.
In ARMS, you take control of fighters that are equipped with specialized extendable arms and try to knock each other out. If the game can attain the same level of quality and fun as other Nintendo games, then expect this to be a hit among game parties when it releases on June 16th.
If ARMS is not for you, then get ready to ink your way to supremacy with the sequel to Splatoon on the Nintendo Switch.
Making its debut on July 21, Splatoon 2 brings the fun and frantic third-person shooter multiplayer to Nintendo’s newest console with all the charm that fans fell in love with. With new modes, new weapons, and more importantly, new ways to get inked, it’s the perfect summer game for the Nintendo fan.
Of course, a list of summer games is not complete without a fighting game in it. Hardcore fighting fans can look forward to some epic brawls when Tekken 7 comes to consoles and PC on June 2nd.
