ARMS Doesn’t Require Motion Controls

In all the promotional material for Nintendo’s upcoming fighter, they make it seem as you can only play ARMS using motion controls. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case. In a recent interview with Edge Magazine, ARMS’ producer talked about a more traditional control scheme for the game. This is great news for those hoping to play the game more casually or in handheld mode. Check out the full interview here.

“The true feel of ARMS comes when you’re holding both Joy-Con controllers in the Thumbs-Up grip. You can throw punches from each hand with real precision as you dash or jump around, allowing for a lot more depth for your fighting style. It’s possible to throw a straight punch as a feint for your first blow, then curve your second punch to where your opponent runs to. But ARMS doesn’t require you to use motion controls. I hope people will pick the play style that suits them.”
