Update: This event has ended.
Nintendo Switch owners can try out ARMS for free this weekend during the second Global TestPunch event by downloading the demo from the eShop. This event runs through Sunday, August 27 at 1PM Pacific time.
Even if you're not really into fighting games, ARMS is truly fun for everyone and is a great game to bring the whole family together. The ability to use motion controls to punch your way to victory provides an intuitiveness to the game which makes it easy for anyone to pick up.
With that being said, it's still tough to master. There are a wide variety of different characters and weapons which each have their own abilities, and while simply punching and blocking will get you through some matches, to beat the best you'll have to get pretty strategic. If you wanna see just how serious some people are about this game, check out the ARMS Open Invitational video above which featured the best of the best going head to head. Watching this video showed me just how wrong I was playing the game.
