About the Game

ARMS Fan Pack

An all-new way to fight!
Stretch your ARMS and grab victory!

ARMS is a fighting game where you use stretchy weaponised arms to punch, thump and knockout opponents. Get ready to put ‘em up, do battle with a colourful range of characters and fight to claim the number one title! Your fighter moves in-line with your hands as you unleash a wide range of punches and other pugilistic moves.

“ARMS does for fighting games what Mario Kart did for driving games” Eurogamer.net - Recommended

One of the biggest features in the upcoming fighting game is the ability to equip two types of customisable ARMS per fighter. These ARMS range from standard gloved arms to curved weapons like boomerangs. Each ARM has a special attribute like fire, ice or electricity that activates when delivering a charge punch.

After customising a character with a variety of arms, the player holds one Joy-Con in each hand and throws left and right punches at the opponent.

Characters can jump and dash, and players can bend their punches by twisting their hands as they swing. As players learn the game and improve their skills, they will discover a deeper level of advanced tactics.

As players fight through the game, they will earn in-game currency that can be used to play in the ARM Getter, a fun mode in which they can get new ARMS for their fighters. The fast-paced game can be played in 1-v-1 matches or even 2-v-2* for more entertainingly chaotic battles.

Players can compete against the computer, against a friend on a split screen using a second set of Joy-Con (sold separately), against worldwide rivals online, or with two Nintendo Switch consoles over a local wireless connection.

The novelty stress ball was about the size I expected, the sticker sheet was nice Edtion

The Game itself is fun & challenging, although it's a bit level grindy to unlock extra glooves/arm's

Great for Online matches
