The Arms Global Testpunch beta on Nintendo Switch will be many gamers' only chance to play the game ahead of release date. Unfortunately, not every Arms character will be available to use during the demo period. If you're wondering which exactly Arms characters you'll be able to use, the answers have finally been revealed. And no, Twintelle is not one of them.

Arms Global Testpunch's list of characters was revealed in a tweet by the game's official Twitter account early on May 19. Here's who you'll be able to fight as during the event:
