Arms will release for Nintendo Switch on June 16. ARMS is a unique fighting game in which each fighter’s arms can be extended like springs. The ARMS Direct featured the single-player Grand Prix mode and revealed three new characters: Kid Cobra, Byte & Barq, and Twintelle.

Combat customization where players can equip two arms, or weapons, which can range from standard fists, boomerangs, and other unique abilities and attributes. Weight is another factor that affects each fighter’s momentum from heavier arms being stronger but slower, and multi-hit Arms being quick but lower individual fighter. Arms can also be upgraded via in-game currency.

Versus Mode with 1v1 and 2v2, a volleyball mode, hoops and skillshot. Multiplayer gaming that allows friends to play either locally or via online play with modes from Grand Prix, Party Match, Ranked Match or Local Wireless Mode.

Nintendo will release free new updates with fighters, stages, and Arms regularly post-release.
