I like this game

This is a very fun game. I currently have 35+ hrs on it. It is one of the must have Nintendo Switch games. Basically you have to fight opponents with long expandable arms. Every time you punch, you’re arms expand to reach the opponent. It is a game/arm workout which is a greats mix. I recommend to people that liked games like Super Smash Bros... Retails at $59.99 — What’s in the game? Cartoon Violence - Characters punch each other with long, extending arms. Some arms fire weapons, such as bursts of energy, spinning blades. Characters don't bleed, suffer grievous injury, die, but can be knocked out.

This title has:

Too much violence
