About

ARMS is a fighting video game announced by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch releasing on June 16th, 2017.

Gameplay

ARMS[4] differentiates itself from other fighting games by allowing up to four players to choose a fighter and battle using a wide variety of extendable arms to knock out opponents in a three-dimensional arena. Players can use either the Switch's Joy-con controllers or standard controllers to participate.



History

Arms was first announced during the initial reveal of the Nintendo Switch on January 12, 2017.[1] Upon its release, it was compared to the boxing minigame from Wii Sports. The Independent[2] called it one of the most impressive displays of gameplay following a Switch hands-on event.



Fandom

The initial reveal of the game has met with an overwhelmingly positive response, leading to the creation of a bevy of fan art. It has also led to the creation of parody image macros in which the title "ARMS" is replaced with various other body parts. There is also a dedicated subreddit[3] to the game with over 1,700 followers.

Twintelle

On May 17th, 2017, Nintendo of America announced that the character Twintelle, equipped with weaponized sidetails for her attack, would be joining the cast of playable characters (shown below). Within 24 hours, the tweet received upwards of 9,100 likes and 3,900 retweets.

That day, a poll about Twintelle was submitted to GameFAQs,[7] where many viewers expressed that they found the character "thicc". Also on May 17th, Twitter user @CartridgeGames[5] submitted a screenshot of Twintelle's backside along with a mock dialogue between Nintendo investors and Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima (shown below). Over the next day, it tweet received upwards of 31,000 likes and 16,800 retweets. On May 18th, Redditor ximca submitted a screenshot of the tweet to /r/gaming,[6] where it gathered more than 41,000 points (86% upvoted) and 1,300 comments within 12 hours.

In the coming days, fan art and image macros of the character began circulating on Twitter[9] and Tumblr,[8] many of which prominently feature or make jokes about the character's backside (shown below).
