ARMS is a 3d fighting game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch, released worldwide on June 16, 2017. The game differentiates itself from standard fighting games as players use a variety of extendable arms to knock out opponents in a three-dimensional arena.

Each player controls one fighter from an over-the-shoulder third-person point of view. The game optionally takes advantage of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers' built-in motion controls, allowing players to throw punches, block, and move around the arena by flicking or tilting the controllers. Using traditional button controls with a Pro Controller, Joy-Con Grip, a single Joy-Con held sideways, or the Switch in handheld mode is also an option. The game is playable locally by up to 4 players on one system, up to 8 players and systems per lobby in local wireless, and up to 10 systems with 2 players each in an online lobby. The game includes an online party and ranked battle modes and local wireless mode.
