Nintendo announces ARMS online tournament

Morgan is a writer, gamer, photographer, and heavy metal enthusiast. Her passion for gaming encompasses both AAA and indie, with a heavy focus on the latter. As AllGamers' resident indie expert, you can expect her to wax poetic about all the latest and greatest indie titles whenever the opportunity arises. 

Morgan's typical day includes an indie gaming marathon and several large cups of coffee. Even on the weekend, you can often find her perched in front of the computer browsing through Steam's new releases. Her current platform of choice is PC, but having grown up with Nintendo, she also has a soft spot for the Switch (especially thanks to its ever-expanding catalogue of indies). 

If you’d like to get in touch with Morgan, you can reach out to her via email or follow her on Twitter.

The tournament is open to all ARMS players in both the US and Canada.

During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo announced a brand new ARMS online tournament. The tournament is scheduled to begin today and concludes on March 18.

To participate, players can access the tournament via the game’s Ranked Match mode. Additionally, the tournament is open to all ARMS players in both the US and Canada.

Players who place in the Top 8 before March 18 will be invited to compete in the online finals set to take place on March 31. The finals will reportedly be live streamed by Nintendo, lending a bit of prestige to the event.

Alongside the online tournament, Nintendo also announced that select game modes will be available to demo for free starting March 31. The free trial will span 3 days. Those looking to get the most out of the demo are encouraged to pre-download “Testpunch” from the Nintendo eShop.

With ARMS ranking as one of the top selling Switch games, we feel the Testpunch demo is well worth looking into, especially for gamers working to expand their digital library.
