Nintendo Announces Arms Global Testpunch Beta


Want to take Nintendo’s new fighting game for a spin? You can play in the Arms beta on Switch!

During a Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo announced the Arms Global Testpunch, a limited beta period where you can play the company’s new fighting game for Switch.

The first Global Testpunch will run from May 26 to May 28. A second round will run from June 2 to June 4. Nintendo said it will outline a more detailed timing schedule for the beta at a future time, but it did specify that these times are for North America only. Similar to the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire, anyone with a Switch can download the free app when it goes live and participates in the beta trial.

Nintendo revealed several new characters in Arms in today’s presentation, as the company prepares to release Arms at retail on June 16. For a complete rundown of our hands on, along with some commentary on Twintelle, Kid Cobra, and the adorable Barq & Byte, check out our Arms preview.
