Stretch your arms
and grab victory!
An all-new way to fight
ARMS is a fighting game where you use stretchy weaponised arms to punch, thump and knock-out 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.
With the Joy-Con™, you’ll feel like you’re right there in the battle, dodging incoming attacks and throwing punches towards your opponent.
Throw down in various locations
Different ways to play
Hold both Joy-Con in a thumbs-up position. You can then move your left hand to deliver a left hook and follow it up with a jab from the right. Twist the Joy-Con after a punch to curve your character’s arm!
Move your fighter by tilting the Joy-Con. By combining dashes and jumps using the L and R Buttons, you can outfox your foe with some nifty footwork.
Extend both of your arms at once to grab your opponent, drag them towards you and give ‘em a good wallop!
Tilt the Joy-Con inwards (as shown) to protect yourself from your opponents’ attacks. How you guard varies depending on the type of punch your opponent throws at you!
When the rush gauge is full, use either the ZL or ZR Buttons to activate it and unleash some mighty moves. It’s a great way to chain attacks into powerful combos!
In addition to holding the Joy-Con in the Thumbs-up Grip, there are many different ways to control your fighter, so find the right style for you!*
