This week's Famitsu contains a review for Nintendo's soon to be released title Arms! The reviews are generally positive with only one reviewer feeling that the game is a bit "mild" for a fighter.

You can check out the translated material below:

Grab the Joy-Cons and use your body to fight in the most lively, multi-colored action game. Stretch your arms and learn all the fighters’ characteristics. It’s time to fight!

Yoshida – Score 8
I’ve fought using my new bionicle arms, playing against the others in this unique fighting game. The gameplay experience was fresh and intuitive. Especially with the Joy-Cons as it gives you the opportunity to enjoy your playstyle immediately. There are a lot of different arms, use them to try new and funny battles. Everything is great; I’ve played with all the modes. This is an impactful, but mild fighting game.

Ashida – Score 8
Left and right arms, dash and jump. Use them wisely and you’ll be good in battle. Think of the best strategy to hit your opponent while you’re defending. Grab the Joy-Con with both hands to play with it ease as this will increase the experience of battle much more. The different battle rules are nice. There’s also a single player mode which is very good.

Honma – Score 8
Even if you’ve played Wii Sports Boxing, you couldn’t perform long punches until now. It’s easy to hit the challenger with a hook, if you miss to push the R and ZR buttons, you can always use the motion sensor. I’m happy that I can choose between them. It’s nice that you can also change the arms. Saving money is essential to getting different arms.

Uchizawa – Score 9
At first glance, it seems extremely simple, but the impressions change when you play; revealing a very deep game. You can change the punches’ trajectory, make a feint, flick the opponent’s glove, and perform many other advanced techniques. In addition, each character and stage are really varied, this is certainly a real treasure among the “party games” genre.
