Nintendo Nintendo Switch

Video: Check Out More ‘Arms’ Footage From Nintendo Japan

Forgiving the slightly eccentric name, Arms for Nintendo Switch pits players against each other inside an arena whilst you, the player, uses the Joy-Cons to punch your way to victory. It may sound an awful lot like Wii Boxing but the brand new IP is actually really fun and requires a considerable amount of skill; as you can see in the videos below that were recently uploaded by Nintendo Of Japan:

And here:

Arms will be released within the launch window¬†for Nintendo’s new console which promises online play and it’s also reported that it makes great use of the Joy-Con’s HD Rumble feature.

Will you be picking this up when it becomes available? I think a game that resembles Punch-Out / Overwatch is certainly a winner in my eyes.

            1. ???????

              It’s not though. Standard price is $39.99 and it goes on sale for as low as $19.99 sometimes.

  1. The first time I saw this I wasn’t sure but after seeing it in action I can’t wait . I’d be more likely to dash in and punch rather than stay at that far distance always. I like how different gloves have different abilities and hopefully there’s more gloves and characters than we’ve seen so far.

  2. I wasn’t initially interested in this game at first. But since learning that you don’t have to use motion controls, I’m leaning towards purchasing it.

    1. I like the option for both. I always prefer standard pro controls, but I have to admit these motion controls actually look pretty fun, ESPECIALLY if down the line we get a VR headset compatible with this game. In the mean time I’m looking forward to mastering this game with the Pro controller.
