Second Arms Global Testpunch Brings New Hoops Mode, More

The first Global Testpunch for Nintendo’s upcoming arena-brawler Arms has come and gone already, however there are several more planned in the coming weeks. The next Global Testpunch will bring with it new features, most notably a new game mode.

The game’s “Hoops” mode will be swapped in place of its V-Ball mode seen in the original Testpunch. While the former is a basketball-themed mode, the latter is its volleyball moe. The news comes via an official Nintendo livestream for the game in Japan.

Also coming in the new Global Testpunch is the ability to change your fighter’s color.

Arms is launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on June 16th.
