US and Canada ARMS players are in for a treat this month as the American Nintendo Direct revealed an upcoming tournament for Switch users from both regions. From 8th March to 18th March, the eight top players ranked in the game's Ranked Battle mode will move on to the online final on 31st March that will be streamed live from Nintendo America HQ in Redmond, Washington.

No one will be left out of ARMS shenanigans this month because a brand new, three-day Global Testpunch was also revealed starting on that very same day. It is as they say: 'The best things in life are free, the second best things are punches in the face from Max Brass'. Probably.

Are you an ass-kicking, face-smashing Ranked player, or do you prefer a more casual battle? Let us know in the comments below...
