Get to know the cast of Arms for Nintendo Switch

One of Nintendo’s more intriguing upcoming titles for the Switch is Arms, a one-on-one 3D fighting game that’s also an original intellectual property. In a pair of videos released today, Nintendo offers a primer on the Arms roster and its arsenal of weapons.

In the video above, Nintendo walks us through the game’s five confirmed characters: Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Ninjara, Master Mummy and Mechanica (who fills the role of little person in a giant mech suit). Each has their own special abilities in terms of punching, jumping and dodging. But it’s clear that even with a limited set of moves, thanks to the weapons in Arms, there will be plenty of variety in battle.

In the video below, Nintendo walks through many of the game’s weapons, including the Toaster, Megaton, Sparky, Boomerang, Revolver and the Slapamander. Players will be able to choose the loadout that suits their fighting style, and based on the available options, it looks like Arms is going to get a little weird.

Arms hits Nintendo Switch sometime this spring. While we wait, check out 30 minutes of Arms gameplay here.
