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.

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.
Since launch, ARMS for Nintendo Switch has been buffed with new fighters, ARMS, stages and more – all via free updates.
15 fighters feature in the ARMS roster, including Spring Man, Master Mummy, Max Brass, Lola Pop and more! Find the fighter that best suits your style.
Your choice of ARMS can also greatly influence battles. With a total of 42 playable ARMS, you have 1764 possible combinations to choose from!
Once you’ve chosen your fighter, select one of 15 unique stages to battle in – one for each of the 15 ARMS fighters.
