I will definitely be buying this game sooner or later. I love the character designs, I love the colors, I love the idea, and I love supporting new Nintendo IP.

I took part in the Testpunch over this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed my time with it, despite the fact that I'm absolutely terrible so far. Did anyone else play? What'd you think? How much will IRHP hate it? Discuss here.

I would have played the beta, but like I mentioned in the reviews thread, I did something awful to my left elbow recently. ARMS would not help.

The footage I've seen is interesting, but it's probably not something I'd pay more than $20 for. Looks like the sort of thing that would be fun for a few hours rather than one of the handful of multiplayer first games that I really get into.

New IP? This is just an Inspector Gadget fighting game. ;)

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I'm really liking Mechanica so far, but I haven't tried Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Ninjara, or Master Mummy yet.

the original reveal was honestly not very good at making this game look remotely interesting, but later coverage like the two Directs have really sold me on the idea. I'd love to play it but tfw no switch

i will say that i can't wait for modders to put mega man 7's spring man in the game though

I actually was quite interested in the commercial.

I played the test punch Sunday morning. I was not very good at it, but I'm definitely excited to play it again when it comes out.

So I got this on Friday, and I absolutely love it. Playing it with the pro-controller is much better than the motion controls, but I would like to give the latter another shot.

So far I'm getting pretty good with Twintelle, and I'm not half bad with Min Min either.

This game is locked in a deadly marketing battle with Dragon Quest XI in Japan, which was really interesting to see considering the attention they're both getting here.

Hopefully it translates into decent sales.

I played this with my friend who owns it and a Switch the other day.

It was so much fun. Also, once I got the hang of it, I became the dominating champion, and as a competitive person that probably had something to do with it. Anyway solid game solid fun lots of punchy punchy

I'd like to pick this up soon, but finances are tight right now. Hopefully I don't wait too long.
