I know many of you are looking forward to Nintendo’s newest fighting game, ARMS, which is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 16. If you are still on the fence or would just like to try before you buy, you are in luck! Similar to the Splatoon Global Testfires, you’ll be able to check out ARMS in what they are calling a Global Testpunch event this weekend and next weekend.
- May 26 – 5:00 p.m. PT
- May 27 – 5:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 5:00 p.m. PT
- May 28 – 5:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. PT
- June 2 – 5:00 p.m. PT
- June 3 – 5:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 5:00 p.m. PT
- June 4 – 5:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. PT
You’ll just need to download the software from the Switch eShop, connect to the internet during one of those times, and get ready to play. They’ve said, similar to Splatoon, that each session will last approximately one hour. So if you play each time, you’ll have 12 hours of ARMS experience to prepare you for the official launch.
Do you plan on playing in the Global Testpunch? Let us know in the comments!
