About the Game


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.

Misango is a skilled fighter who is fiercely devoted to his homeland, and the power of the Misanga. During a fight, he channels that power with the help of the little woven sprite that hovers at his side. His reasons for competing in the Grand Prix are simple – to prove that the Misangan fighting technique is superior to all others...and to win!

This ancient temple, deep in the woods, was built in honour of the Misanga and its great powers. Amidst the gentle sloping grounds, the majestic pillars speak to the history of this location. One thing is clear – many a fight has gone down on these legendary sparring grounds!
