Boiled down to the basics, you win in a one-on-one fight if you manage to knock your opponent out. It’s that simple!
Gather your friends or compete against computer-controlled opponents, each of whom have their own particular strengths and styles. Get ready to take part in ferocious battles in a whole range of different situations!
Versus Mode isn’t just for one-on-one battles – you can also pair up with a partner and fight two-against-two in Team Fights! With limbs flying everywhere, you won’t always be sure what’s hit you!
Partners are chained together with strings, so if one of you takes a fall, the other will be dragged down too. Allies can hit each other too, so be careful where you’re swinging those ARMS...
Spike an explosive ball onto the opponent’s court in V-Ball, dunk your opponent and go for three-pointers aplenty in Hoops, fight over a mask that gives you six ARMS in Hedlok Scramble, break as many targets as you can in Skillshot, or push yourself to your limits and see how you get on against many opponents in a 1-on-100 battle. There are all kinds of ways to enjoy ARMS!
All ARMS fighters share one dream: to win the Grand Prix. Fight through 10 battles in a row and try to grab that belt! Take on all seven difficulty levels and find out if you have what it takes to become the champ!
