Nintendo's Arms invitational showed there's already one character who's OP


This E3 Nintendo has been making a concerted push towards competitive play that’s going hand-in-hand with its Switch system – one of the most multiplayer friendly consoles yet devised. It started off with Splatoon 2’s World Inkling Invitational, carried on with the Pokken Tournament DX Invitational and got really interesting with the Arms invitational that took place last night.

All eyes are on Arms right now, with Nintendo’s fascinating take on fighting games launching tomorrow. It’s an alright video game, though whether it can sustain a competitive scene remains to be seen – but having watched last night’s Invitational I think it stands a good chance.
