Nintendo makes a move on the fighting game genre with Arms, a new game for Nintendo Switch.

on January 12, 2017 11:39 PM

During today’s Nintendo Switch Presentation, a new game called Arms was announced for the upcoming console.

It is a 3D fighting game that takes advantage of the Joy-Con as each Joy-Con functions as a controller that can sense when the player punches or dodges.

The game, that sports a definitely cartoonish look, has players facing off against each other with extendable arms. The two characters shown in the announcement trailer are named Spring Man and Ribbon Girl.

You can watch the trailer below. Arms will be available for Nintendo Switch this Spring.
