Nintendo Unveils New Wii Boxing-Style Game for Switch Called Arms

Nintendo has added to their list of ever-growing first-party titles for their now month-old gaming console the Switch. The game, called Arms, is basically a cartoonier take on Wii Boxing with a stronger focus on characters and storytelling. It uses the Joy-Cons as nunchucks to battle with your opponent, and since you’ll be using your fists a whole lot, you may wanna step away from your TV.

Here’s Nintendo’s official description of Arms for your reference straight from their Direct conference this evening.

One of the biggest features in the upcoming fighting game is the ability to equip two types of customizable ARMS per fighter. These ARMS range from standard gloved ARMS to curved weapons like boomerangs. Each ARM has a special attribute like fire, ice or electricity that activates when delivering a charge punch. As players fight through the game, they will earn in-game currency that can be used to play the ARM Getter, a fun mode in which they can get new ARMS for their fighters. The fast-paced game can be played in 1-v-1 matches or even 2-v-2* for more entertainingly chaotic battles. During the Nintendo Direct presentation, a new character was also revealed: the super-fast, ramen-armed Min Min.

The game launches on Switch June 16th. Click here to learn more.
