The first of two ARMS’ TestPunches took place over the weekend with seven fighters and one of the main modes, Party Mode available for those eager to check out Nintendo’s newest IP.
To say I had a good time would be an understatement. After previewing ARMS at a recent event, I was fairly optimistic for this unique brand of fighter. But I was blown away by how much fun this game is over the weekend and this is largely due to the lobby system in the Party Mode on offer.
In Party Mode, several players a placed in the same pool to partake in various modes including 1v1, free for all, team fights (in which you are tied to your team mate) and a volleyball mode (which is way more fun than you’d think).
