ARMS And Zelda Breath Of The Wild Were Made On The Same Floor At Nintendo

TIME has run an extensive interview with Arms producer Kosuke Yabuki and art director Masaaki Ishikawa and I would encourage you all to check it out. One of the things mentioned was that Arms and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild were made on the same floor at Nintendo. This allowed the developers to converse and use certain ideas that featured in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild which the team found useful.

Arms and Breath of the Wild are made on the same floor at Nintendo, and we are able to use things that the Breath of the Wild team found useful. But it’s important for us to choose the right tools for the game. In development of this game, we looked a lot at the results of the battles, the overall picture of what character matches well with what character and what arms go up well against what arms. That information comes from humans fighting other humans. But we also use the artificial intelligence in the game to match A.I. against itself and look at that data. And of course the players who participated in the Armstest this last weekend, we looked at that to check and see if there are any balance issues.

  1. I only got to play in a couple of matches. The motion controls were spot on for me at least. I have to get used to the controls tho they were kind of confusing to remember with the curving punches

    Uh, for one, can ya nerf grabs? They do ridiculous damage and all a lot of players do is spam them…

    1. I noticed that too. I often decided to wait for the grabs, jump and dash to the side, and then grab them. Either that or I’d punch right through the grab (attacking counters grab). Even still, I feel like executing a grab does do a bit too much damage. Grabs in a free for all match though… that’s where the nightmare truly lies.

      1. Exactly! In 3-player FFA, one player will just slink off to the side while the other two actively fight each other and then grab one while they’re distracted, and there’s almost nothing they can do about it. Pisses me off every time.
