Still skeptical about Nintendo’s latest character-based boxing game, ARMS? Nintendo is once again opening the game to anyone who wants to try it in the latest Global Testpunch — the second to come to the brand new series, and the first after the game’s June launch.

Global, large-scale demos is something that has taken Nintendo by storm, ever since the surprise success of Splatoon on the Wii U. Before ARMS’ unveiling, Nintendo Switch owners were able to take part in an extended two-weekend Testpunch that sold many people on the highly experimental title.

This latest Global Testpunch coincides with the game’s unveiling of their latest character, Lola Pop. Revealed only earlier this week, Lola Pop is a quirky, candy based boxer with clear clown-like inspiration.

The second Global Testpunch for ARMS is currently underway, beginning at 8 AM PT yesterday (August 25th) and ending 1 PM PT on Sunday, August 27th. To download the game, simply head to the Nintendo Switch eShop or download the game here.

As mentioned above, ARMs is the Nintendo Switch exclusive fighting game that released earlier in July. DualShockers’ Ryan Meitzler reviewed the bizarre title and gave it an 8.0 out of 10, noting “The Nintendo Switch’s brand new game ARMS packs plenty of punch.”
