It isn’t too difficult to get into the ARMS North American Online Open. People need a copy of ARMS and to be Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, of course. They also need to live in Canada, Mexico, or the United States and meet the age requirements, which are over 13 in Canada and the US and over 18 in Mexico. Once people set up a Battlefy account and register, they’ll have a chance to win the Gold Points.

There will be eight ARMS North American Online Open winners in total. Each one will receive 2,500 Gold Points. These could be spent at My Nintendo to get 3DS games or discounts on eShop titles. Or, someone could use them as eShop credit to, say, get a $25 game for their Nintendo Switch.

ARMS is available for the Nintendo Switch. It’s the fighter where each competitor has extendible arms that can fly across the arena with their incredible reach. A free demo is available. One of its last major events was a final ARMS Party Crash Bash, during which Min Min was crowned the winning character.
