ARMS Global Testpunch demo next week, post-launch DLC support announced

Nintendo announced an online beta for ARMS, an upcoming fighter by the Mario Kart team. The beta is called a Global Testpunch, and starts next weekend! Here are the times that online play will be live.

Additionally Nintendo confirmed that the game will receive post-launch DLC support. There will be 10 playable characters at launch with more coming later as DLC. This approach should be similar to Splatoon’s DLC in the summer of 2015.

Get ready to fight folks because this punch out-meets HD Rumble-meets Power Stone like brawling by the folks who invented kart racing with Mario Kart is a game you’re going to want to play.
