MILWAUKIE, Ore., (October 05, 2017)–Earlier this year, Nintendo released ARMS, a fighting game exclusive to Nintendo Switch;. Today, ahead of New York Comic Con and The Nintendo World Championships 2017, Dark Horse is excited to announce a new publishing program for the energetic and strategic fighting game.

The latest installment in Dark Horse and Nintendo’s partnership, ARMS is preceded by The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia, The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts, The Art of Fire Emblem Awakening, and The Art of Splatoon.

ARMS; is a revolutionary fighting experience for all ages and skill levels.
