Frozenbyte is excited to announce that the co-operative blast'em up game Nine Parchments is coming to Nintendo Switch™! Part of it could also stem from the fact that Nintendo's online network on the Switch is somewhat unproven with upcoming plans for major changes this fall including a new paid service charge.

Nintendo Japan has also announced it would receive the accessories as well, alongside a Splatoon 2 Switch bundle with bright green and pink Joy-Cons.

The Direct revealed the rest of the 10 character roster. They can use the Roller, Slosher, Splatling, and the new Dualies.

Players will be able to enjoy Silkshots in the game as well. It's called Arms because the characters have spring-like arms that zoom towards rivals to land punches. Each ARM has its own element attribute, special attack, and weight. As you play and earn currency you'll be able to upgrade your favorite ARMS and purchase new ones.

The PS4 rhythm violence game, which was also a PlayStation VR launch title, is available for £16 from the Nintendo eShop.

The reason the game now displays in 720p docked and undocked was due to technical issues encountered shifting from one resolution to the other during development, according to what Microsoft said previously. The Nintendo Pro Controller will work just as well, as mentioned here.

For more updates, stay tuned.

Like Splatoon, ARMS will benefit from a free demo to help stabilize online multiplayer.

The Global Testpunch will begin the last weekend of May and the first weekend of June.

As a surprise end note to the Direct, Nintendo unveiled a trailer for Splatoon 2's single-player campaign. Both the hardware bundle and the Joy-Cons will launch alongside Splatoon 2 on July 21st.
