Arms
Platform: Switch

Nintendo Switch owners haven’t had the largest library to draw from as the console continues to gain its footing in the market, but Arms hopes to help alleviate that with a quirky boxer that definitely punches up the charm.

Drawing inspiration from Nintendo classic Punch Out, Arms is all about strengths, weaknesses and knowing when to capitalise on the right opportunity, as you duel opponents packing extendable arms and super-powered fists.

What that often leads to is a tense feud of dodges and weaves as you work towards curving your perfect hit or timing a crucial grab.

Alone, Arms might lack the substance for a lengthy addiction, but alongside some friends or delving into the game’s online suite, Arms is a boatload of fun from start to finish.
