Welcome to the official topic for ARMS- the weird boxing game where everybody's arms are very long!

In this game, you beat people up with your long-ass arms. You can equip new ARMS ends to change your abilities.

There's a "Grand Prix" story mode, where you take on the entire roster until you fight the final boss. this boss differs based on difficulty.

With free dlc, a multitude of modes, and some good waifu material, i'd say ARMS has legs too! smilie

Here's the basic 10 fighters that come with the game.

The Bouncer, SPRING-MAN
The Airess, RIBBON GIRL
The Student Of Stealth, NINJARA
The Grim Creeper, MASTER MUMMY
The Scrapyard Scrapper, MECHANICA
The Ramen Bomber, MIN MIN
The Man Of Mystery, HELIX
The Silver Screen Queen, TWINTELLE
The Clockwork Cops, BYTE AND BARQ
The Speed Demon, KID COBRA

DLC FIGHTERS-
These fighters were added in free updates.

The Commish, MAX BRASS

The Sucker Puncher, LOLA POP
The Spirited Fighter, MISANGO
The Mean Machine, SPRINGTRON
The Rad Scientist, DR. COYLE

In January of 2019, an ARMS graphic novel series will be released by Dark Horse Comics. A preview of the first issue was released in a Legend Of Korra comic available on free comic book day. more information will be gathered as we find it.

I don't know if this is gonna be as big a game as Nintendo hopes it will be, but it does actually look pretty fun.

Plus I'm glad there's more character than punchy dude and ribbon girl.

We really do make All Purpose threads for everything now don't we?

Looks fine but will have little content to it outside of the core gameplay. Expect it to be a bargin bin title by the holiday season.

And you know this, because? Like, there's no reason to draw this conclusion at all.

Yeah, you can never tell what's going to wind up being big and what'll be a bargain bin.

I'll bet a lot of people thought Splatoon was going to be bargain bin as well and yet that turned out to be one of the best selling games on the Wii U (which I know isn't really saying much, but... Did well enough to warrant a sequel).

Yeah, exactly! Arms probably won't be as big as Splatoon, but it clearly has its fanbase already.

Also, I was more referring to the comment about the lack of content. You actually don't know that. The game is not out yet.

Exactly. They have plenty of time to add/reveal more content.

i've seen people comparing this to ORAORAORA more than anything but not stone free or heirophant green wtf guys

That aside, I'm glad I'm not the only fan of this game. It doesn't look like it'll keep my attention for long and it's probably on the lower end of hype for Switch games I plan to buy, but I'm gonna give it a shot. I like the designs a lot and the use of JoyCons is gimmicky but seems amusing to me. I'm seeing mixed reactions to the designs and I'm sure a lot of people won't like the controls, so I don't think it'll take off, but count me as a fan.

Also, the main character will be forever known as Toothpaste Man to me.

And that's why you can use the Pro Controller with the game. Nintendo is smarter than people give them credit for.

^ Oh, I didn't even know it was a feature! Well then hopefully I can afford that controller by then.

One of my hopes for this game is that there are more than the five characters we've seen so far for the game in the Treehouse demo. That and there is some sort of campaign mode. I'm betting there will be at least the former, since fighting games are usually about versatility and choosing a fighter that clicks with you.

I guess literally clicks with you in this case since it's the Switch.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I wanna try both. But I don't want to be stuck with JoyCons 100% of the time, and the Joy-Con Grip doesn't look that comfortable to me (hopefully I'm wrong on that, since I hate buying extra controllers).

ReviewTechUSA wasn't so hype for this, though. He literally cussed Nintendo out and dicked them off, saying that they should've known to stop doing this after the Wii died in popularity.

Quote: ReviewTechUSA
YOU'VE GONE THROUGH TWO GENERATIONS OF THIS ****


He is interested in the Switch and is getting one, but he's worried that IPs like this may doom it from the start. I do like the concept of this game, though, and just made a dA fan art group dedicated to the game.

My reasoning comes down to it looking quite heavily like a Wii Boxing game, and also giving me some flashbacks of Pokken in presentation style. It seems it'll have a good set of fighters but I just don't imagine it having some big story mode or any tangible community or following like other fighting games. I imagine the vast majority of the marketing and appeal will come from the controls and core gameplay, but when time comes it'll probably not garner much more than a 75 on Metacritic.

Splatoon seemed a lot more tangible and ready to have a dedicated online presence as Nintendo's first real shooter (first or third person). And while we didn't know right away about the story mode, it was already easy to tell from the variety of weapons and reliance on online there was going to be a lot to it. Enough to where even though it's not a big thing, it has a competitive side where people were able to figure out a meta with all the weapons and clothing.

Arms on the other hand doesn't look like it'll have that much. It's not going to have a meta like other fighting games, because it relies far more on physical ability than the character itself. It looks like it's a tech demo for the new controllers than anything.

I would like to be wrong, and the game looks fun (I love Wii Boxing), but that's just my prediction and thoughts.

Can anyone validate this random Tumblr post's validity?

Basically the person is saying that the motion controls will be optional and that you can use a more traditional control style if you want. If that's true, then I guess this is good for people who'd rather play one way or another. I have a feeling most people will play it traditionally though.

Like I said though it is just some random guy on Tumblr, so can anyone confirm or deny this?

Doubt this will be as big as Smash, but if fate is in it's favor I can see it having it's own community. Especially if Nintendo continues to support it after release with DLC and stuff.

This for sure, Spring Man is totally the poster boy, like Ryu in Street Fighter or even Lucario in Pokken.

Treehouse gameplay:



A interesting mechanic is that you can choose different gloves for each hand before battle. Each one works differently, so the players have to create strategies for each combination. Each character has its own gloves, 3 per character, as of now.
