Arms is the upcoming fighting game for the Nintendo Switch, developed by Nintendo EPD. The main thing setting it apart from other fighting games are the extendable arms that all characters have. Players can hit each other from over across the 3D arena. You can also dodge, block and throw stuff at the opponent.

Up to four players can participate in a match simultaneously. Arms uses the Joy-Con motion control input, allowing you to throw punches by moving your arms. Of course, you can also use normal button inputs. So, if this sounds like something that might be up your alley, mark your calendar!
