Nintendo promised new details about Arms during today's Direct presentation, and the developer delivered. The full Arms breakout is above, which details both a new character for the game (Minmin) as well as an in-depth explanation of how combat will work.

In addition to the Arms gameplay details, Nintendo also revealed that the game will launch on June 16. On that same day, we'll get two new Nintendo peripherals: a Neon Yellow joycon controller, and a Joycon battery pack adaptor (to give the handheld controllers a little more juice on the go. The name of the peripheral is apparently: AA Battery Pack.

Why'd they name it "Neon Yellow" when it looks like high visibility jacket green in the pictures?

eh...don't like the Neon Yellow color.

Though the added grip peripheral is nice, since it also adds battery, though I don't see the necessity for that since the Joy-cons already have a good battery life.
