Nintendo's latest brand new IP, ARMS, released on the Nintendo Switch in June of this year. The title took advantage of the unique capabilities of the consoles motion controllers, the Joy-Cons, and delivered a competitive fighting game for the new system.


GrandPrix
This track is the games official Main Theme that plays during the title menu. It's an infectious tune that conveys a fun, colourful atmosphere to what is yet another unique world hand-crafted by Nintendo.




Scrapyard
This is one of the games stage themes, that is paired with the character Mechanica. It's funky guitar chords play in tandem with an almost sporadic selection of instruments and varying sounds.




Snake Park
This theme is another stage track, this time for the character Kid Cobra. It's one of the faster tunes found in the game and features a mild play on the Main Theme of ARMS. In fact, most of the games stage themes feature recurring elements from the games title track.




Get New ARMS Theme
This song is a bonus theme of sorts that plays when the character is partaking in a Mini-game that allows players to obtain more "ARMS" for their characters. Its yet another ultra-funky track with a great bass riff.
