How quickly did it go out?
(edited 2 days ago)
It kinda fizzled out pretty quickly after it released, but I wouldn't particularly call it a failure. It just needed a little more to have a lasting effect on people. I think that a sequel or something could do that though.

It wasn't a Smash success, but for a new IP it did respectably, and there are still people that swear by it.

It did fizzle, but it's clear Nintendo still has a vested interest in keeping ARMS alive, so I wouldn't call it a failure either.

Basically as Hacked said, it didn't have much lasting impact but it wasn't a failure of a game, it certainly sold solid enough. It could get better with a sequel if they took a stab at it, the game isn't exactly the most replayable thing in the world so fixing that would be a good start.

When compared to other big name switch titles, a complete failure.

It died so fast by the time I got a switch the game was looooong dead and I ionl remembered it the minute spring man was an AT
