The litlgeeks are ecstatic to be able to share with you, this little preview of a game called ARMS. ARMS is coming out June 16th 2017 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. There are a bunch of fun ways to play ARMS, but at the root of the fun, you hold a Joy-Con in each hand and beat the heck out of each other by swinging your arms and throwing punches with your ARMS! Sound exciting? Sound fun!? It is! Check out the video below for a quick preview, and stay tuned for our deeper look into ARMS and all of it’s game modes later in the month of June!
As you can see, ARMS is an absolute blast to play (and a bit of a work out!). The litlgeeks love the game and have been playing since we downloaded it. Over the next few weeks we will check out all of the modes, play online, and have as much fun as we can so we can share a more in depth review with you. For now, check out some official details and some official screen shots right from Nintendo, and remember ARMS comes out June 16th 2017 for the Nintendo Switch!
THE FIRST FIGHTING GAME OF ITS KIND!
Choose a fighting champion from around the world, equip your own combination of extendable arms, and then use a mix of button presses and quick hand motions to really take the ght to your opponent. Throw punches and guide them midight to hit agile ghters, avoid incoming attacks with dashes, or trampoline high into the air to rain down sts from above. Power-up your punches to deal extra damage or curve your sts around obstacles to hit skittish opponents. Fill up your special gauge to dish out devastating combinations and nish them off. Unleash your inner ghter in this unbelievable sporting event!
- Fight via simple motion and button controls – Grab onto your Joy-Con with a unique “thumbs-up” grip and use simple motions and button presses to outthink your opponent. Toss and curve punches when you find an opening, and dodge a flurry of incoming attacks. It’s fast-paced fun for everyone!
- Select from a variety of fighters – Select from brand-new fighting superstars like Ribbon Girl, Master Mummy, and more! Each fighter has their own special attributes to learn and master.
- Fight in arenas with unique obstacles – Throw punches around (or through) mysterious liquid-filled columns in a spooky laboratory, or in certain arenas, toss fighters onto trampolines for epic aerial skirmishes.
- Choose your arms carefully – Each weapon has its own strength. Some are slow and do tons of damage, while others are fast as lighting, but will only serve to set up larger combinations. It’s up to you to mix and match your arms to fit your play style.
