Switch game Arms is like boxing, if boxing starred anime characters with Slinkies for ... arms

Remember the fun of boxing in Wii Sports? Well, Nintendo has just revealed Switch game Arms at their Switch reveal press conference (opens in new tab), which takes that concept of flailing wildly in the air to the next level.

Starring colorful characters like Spring Man and Ribbon Girl, the game has you ducking, dodging, and trading punches using the Switch's Joy-Con controllers as your motion-sensing controllers.

There's full 3D movement throughout fighting arenas, and the wacky characters make this feel like a mashup of the aforementioned boxing mini-game from Wii Sports with Power Stone.
