ARMS seems to be developing quite the fan art following already....

What happens when Nintendo lets their Mario Kart team stretch a little bit and reach for new ideas? Well, you get ARMS!

And of course the fandom has started to really let the fan art flow, specially after Min Min appeared in the last Direct and quickly positioned herself as the flavor of the month.

Since it has one of those hip "one word" brand names, if you search for arms you'll mostly get, well, the body parts, so it just makes sense to dedicate a space for us to share and follow. Here it comes!

And of course, crossovers!

Can the next fan art thread not have this style of title, I remember it from the Overwatch thread and a couple of others. English is a multifaceted language and there's many ways to say the same thing differently other than "game X is developing fan art following"...

That being said the fanart looks cool and I'm nit picky. Should be a cool thing to go back too

Man I had zero interest in this game at E3, but it looks really cool sometimes and I'm in love with the character designs.

I showed off the announcement trailer to someone a couple of months back, and they said it reminded them of Coil-Man from this old cartoon called The Impossibles. Specifically, they said the game is like that character is fighting himself.

That's what got me to have this crossover piece commissioned.

Ask me about the moon landing or the temperature at which jet fuel burns. You may be surprised at what you learn.

Don't think I'll be able to handle the ones that turn other characters arms into springs

Unnerving for some reason

Yea arms comprised of noodles is definitely creepy to the point of not sure if I could play this game, and this is from someone who really likes Sylveons design. Unless theyre cyborgs or something.

Oh hey these are pretty cool! But isn't this still 3D but with some touching up in Photoshop? I have this weird feeling that this wasn't really "drawn" (i love the effect though)
Nah it's definitely drawn. Almost resembles the BOTW ink brush art in a way.

Monolith does a lot of art for other Nintendo studios, I wonder if they had a hand in this too.

Do the fighters in ARMS have to have their arms amputated to compete, or are they just naturally born without them?

Is ARMS cyperpunk?
This is gonna be even more prevalent than the Starfox Leg Amputee thing.

That's how it is in my head though. The question is, are they amputees getting a new lease on life? People who have volunteered to be modified for sport? Cyborgs manufactured by corporations? I need a 13 episode animated series to explore this.
