E3 2017: Zerk Rises To The Top In 2017 ARMS Open Invitational


Four professional competitive fighting game players took on four E3 attendees in the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational this week.

The single-elimination tournament saw expert players Alex Valle, Kelsy “SuperGirlKels” Medeiros, Daniel “Tafokints” Lee and Marie-Laure “Kayane” Norindr all knocked out. After qualifying at Nintendo’s E3 2017 booth, it was Jamal “Zerk” Mackey that went on to become the ultimate champion.

He was awarded the coveted 2017 ARMS Open Invitational Belt and had the chance to fight ARMS producer Kosuke Yabuki in an exhibition match.

ARMS will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on June 16th.
