Thanks to a special European hands-on event, DigitalFoundry has uploaded a new video analysis in which we can take a closer look at how ARMS performs when running on Switch.

Apparently, ARMS will run at a stable 60 FPS in all types of available playstyles, but the 1080p resolution will drop to 900p if we play a 2 or 4-player splitscreen match. Sadly, in 4-player multiplayer the frames per second will be reduced to 30 FPS in order to maintain a good playing flow.

Check out the video below to see for yourselves how good ARMS is looking.
