If you’ve seen someone play ARMS in any of the footage we’ve released, you already know that the game supports motion controls and that a quick flick of a wrist is all it takes to throw a punch.

Here's what Matthew Karch, one of the devs on NBA Playgrounds, had to say to a fan who asked when the online patch is coming to the Switch version of the game.
We have something big in the works for Switch owners as a "make good". I can't share it now, but I hope to be able to announce it by Saturday. I promise it is coming soon and more.
Hi, we had a fun couple of weeks with ARMS! Last week after the ARMS Nintendo Direct, we asked you guys on Twitter to submit your best ARMS fan art. The amount of amazing submissions we received was truly incredible. You are all very talented. We sent your submissions to the ARMS developers in Japan so they can choose our six winners. We even have some comments from ARMS producer Mr. Yabuki and the game’s art director Mr. Ishikawa. Don’t forget join in on the ARMS fun during this weekend’s ARMS Test Punch. We hope to play with some of you online. Also, we’re taking our annual pre-E3 two week break so we’ll see you in a few weeks. Thanks so much for watching!
