Game Overview

  • Arms Overview

Arms is an upcoming sports fighting game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. Scheduled for release on June 16, 2017, it features a colorful cast of characters who fight using freely-expanding and flexible ARMs, each with their unique sets of abilities and skills.

This concept makes for very interesting battles, creating a variety of approaches and strategies in engaging your opponent.

  • Using the Joy-Con’s sensor controls

Players move their characters in ARMs using the Joy-Con controller unique to the Nintendo Switch. This means that your character directly responds to how you tilt the controller in various angles.

Tilting the Joy-Con forward, backwards, and left and right allows your character to move around. If you extend your left hand forward while holding the left controller, you’ll execute a left punch. Likewise, the right controller will allow you to do a right punch. You can twist and twirl your hands as you’re holding a controller to curve or bend punches. Certain movements will allow you to perform unique moves as well. In addition, you can grab or guard against enemies.

  • Choose a character that suits your style of play!

ARMs is not just about engaging in a simple brawl with your opponent. You’ll also need to employ your ARM’s unique abilities in battle.

ARMS Characters
Min Min is good at Carry , while Spring Man excels in counter attacks.

For example, Min Min the Ramen Bomber can “kick away” airborne ARMS to knock them to the ground. She can then follow-up it up with more attacks. Spring Man on the other hand, is a hot-blooded fighter dubbed The Bouncer who can shake-off an opponent’s attack by releasing a “shock wave” which can be canceled as well. He also excels in counter attacks.

Each fighter has his or her own special fighting style, and can be outfitted with a variety of different ARMs so you’ll need to decide which of them suits you the best. It isn’t really an exaggeration to say that the possibilities and combinations are endless.

  • Fighting battles with the unique time lag element

A unique feature in the game is the time lag that comes into play as you extend your ARMs towards an opponent. There is a sense of strategy in reading an opponents attacks and how you respond to them, giving it a completely different feel from the typical fighting game.

Complex and diverse attacks that can be executed by both left and right arms may bring an interesting aspect in battles, coupled with the strengths and weaknesses of each character in the game.
