Fandom Outcry Helped Get Twintelle Added To The 'ARMS' Testpunch

The vast majority of gamers haven't even picked up ARMS yet for the Global Testpunch, and they were already in outrage that they couldn't play as Twintelle in this weekend's event on the Nintendo Switch. She has become the most popular character of the game with fans online, and they haven't even played as her to see if she's any good or not. So when they found out Nintendo didn't have plans to have her involved, they got angry!


All of that changed today when Nintendo's official Twitter account for the ARMS Testpunch confirmed she would indeed be a part of the event due to fan outcry. However, the news says June 3 and 4, so she probably won't be a part of any of the testing during Friday's only hour. What's going to be interesting to watch on social media is whether or not people actually like her after they've played as her, and if there will be a new outcry about how bad she might be.

The first hour of the ARMS Global Testpunch kicks off at 5 p.m PDT, where you'll be able to fight one-on-one with people live, as well as try out the Hoops mode. A complete schedule for the event on the Nintendo Switch can be found on Nintendo's website.
