ARMS is a fighting sports game developed by Nintendo that uses extendable arms for battle. It's similar to boxing in that the player strikes their opponents with their fists but, the arms stretch to reach the opponent across the stage. ARMS can be played split-screen, online, or with Switch vs Switch.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

ARMS is a 3D arena fighter with the goal to whittle down the opponent's hitpoints. The extendable arms mean that distance does not mean the player can avoid the attack. However, a whiffed punch results in an opening that gets bigger with greater distance. Hitting the opponents arms does not do much damage but can stun their arms, creating an opening. They can also stun arms with certain Arms that are either more powerful, or can stun. There are 2-on-2 matches in addition to 1-on-1.

In addition to choosing the character the player plays, the player can choose between 3 arms for the character and change between each round. Players do not have to use the same arm for both arms. The arms can also have 1 of 7 attributes; Fire, Electric, Wind, Ice, Explosion, Stun, Blind. Heavier arms can go through lighter arms in direct collision. All arms are compatible with the whole cast but they need to be unlocked with the in-game currency. Each person in the cast starts with 3 arms for free.
