ARMS Global Beta Announced For Next Two Weekends
Your chance to go arms on with the game ahead of its launch.
ARMS looks fantastic, but when it comes to video games, playing is believing. And Nintendo is following the playbook that it followed with Splatoon to great success with ARMS, by letting players around the world go hands on – arms on? – with the game, and check out how it plays against other players. That’s right, they will be holding a global multiplayer beta for the game. It will be called the Global Testpunch.
Someone at Nintendo needs to be fired.
The Testpunch will be held on May 26, 27, 28, and June 2, June 3, and June 4. Only North American players can play on May 26 and June 2, but everyone else can join in on all the other dates. To know the exact time frames that Nintendo will have open for play, check out the list below.
