Nintendo recently aired a Nintendo Direct broadcast focused on Arms, during which the company unveiled new characters and game modes--see some of them in action here. We also got to go hands-on with the title and found it to be deeper than you might expect.

The Japanese publisher has also said it will continue supporting Arms after release with free updates, including additional characters, stages, and weapons. Amazingly, the base game only takes up 2.2 GB if you download it.
