Try out ARMS for free for a limited time!

Also, early details on the quirky new character, Lola Pop.

The spirit of competition continues to burn brightly for the ARMS™ game. We have two exciting bits of news today, so let's get straight to it.

The first bit is for people who have never played the game before but are curious about it. Mark your calendars, because Nintendo Switch owners will be able to try out the game for free during our second ARMS Global Testpunch event. Even if you're not normally into fighting games, the fast and fun gameplay may be worth giving a shot.

Just like the first Global Testpunch, you'll be able to play during select times:

8 a.m. PT Friday, August 25th – 1 p.m. PT Sunday, August 27th

Secondly, a brand new fighter will be joining the roster soon. Please put your hands and arms together for the one…the only...Lola Pop!

While it may be tempting to ask her to stop clowning around, this well-travelled street performer is a force to be reckoned with. Her special ability involves inflating her body like a balloon to provide added defense (very mysterious, indeed). Lola will be available in a free, future update and comes with a brand new stage and three new ARMS. Check out the video to see her rather…um…strange fighting style.
