During today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced a tournament for their fighting game ARMS, as well as another Global Test Punch coming later.
To participate in the preliminaries, players go through the game’s online Ranked Match mode March 8 – March 18. The top players then move on to the online finals on March 31, which will be streamed live from Nintendo of America headquarters. All finalists get official art from the game sent to them, as well.
Starting on the same day as the finals, Nintendo will also be hosting a three-day Global Test Punch for the game. The Test Punch acts as an online demo for players without the game to test it out and see if they like the game.
