Arms is a new fighting game coming to the Switch as an exclusive to put this joy pads to work. Shonen fans might think is as close as they can get to being Luffy of One Piece. Well you are not the only one. Luffy was mentioned in conversation between game producer and game informer Just talk but lets be honest why wouldn’t he be in? Well according to game producer, Kosuke Yabuki said it would have been nice but since they are in two different worlds no go. You can see the conversation below.
Game Informer: Can you talk about or tease the post-launch plans?
Yabuki: I can say this as it was shared in the Nintendo Direct that we just had: We do plan to add new characters, arms, and stages for free going forward.
Game Informer: Can one of those characters be Luffy from One Piece? He seems like he would fit in that universe.
Yabuki: I guess now that you mention it, Luffy’s arms do extend huh? I didn’t really think of that. But unfortunately, the world of Arms and the world that Luffy lives in are different worlds, so I don’t think he will be in this game.
It would have been nice to see Luffy in ARMS. It was the potential for One Piece fans to get into ARMS, ARMS enthusiasts to get into One Piece, and those who love both to have a stretchy good time with a great game and great character. You can see a trailer for arms and some gameplay of it below!
As always thank you for reading.
