Arms is an upcoming fighting video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch, which is set for release worldwide in June 2017. The game differentiates itself from the standard fighting game, as up to four players can choose a fighter and battle using a variety of extendable arms to knock out opponents in a three-dimensional arena.The Game’s fighter roster currently consists of six characters; Springman, Ribbon Girl, Mechanica, Ninjara, Master Mummy, and Min Min.
Up to four players can control one of a variety of fighters, with the player able to perform basic fighting actions using extendable arms such as punching, throwing, blocking, and dodging. Each character has a different set of abilities and unique gloves for different strategies. Players are able to use the system’s Joy-Con motion-controllers or standard button input to operate each arm individually. Conventional control methods, such as with the Pro controller, are also able to be used. Players are also able to customize their arm loadouts, with each arm being able to be selected independently. A 2v2 game mode also exists.
