Nintendo will give Switch owners a chance to check out Arms’ online multiplayer modes starting later this month, with two worldwide betas available to all.

The “global testpunch” — following a naming convention started bySplatoon 2 earlier this spring — will begin in North America on Friday, May 26. It opens up to players around the rest of the world on May 27, then continues through Sunday, May 28. American players may appreciate the timing; that’s Memorial Day weekend for us stateside.

Another beta will run the following weekend, beginning in North America on Friday, June 2 and concluding Sunday, June 4. Specific event times are available on the official Arms website.

Arms is out on June 16, making it the next big game in the Nintendo Switch library. A download for the testpunch is available on the eShop now.
