Nintendo Switch brawler ARMS is getting a new character

Matt Sayer 9 October 2017 NEWS


The new fighter will be joined by a bunch of new features coming to the game later this month.

As much as we enjoyed it, one of the issues we had when we reviewed the bonkers boxing game ARMS was its lack of character diversity. There was too little to differentiate the various fighters from each other, and that made the game feel kind of threadbare in parts.

Thankfully, Nintendo looks to be addressing exactly this with a free update to ARMS due later this month. Along with a new arena, the update will add unlockable badges you can earn by completing tasks such as earning a set amount of credits or winning a number of matches.

Most interesting, however, is the introduction of a new character. The trailer for the update gives us a sneak peek at the new guy, but it's not clear yet what powers he'll have or even what his name is.

This 3.2 update for ARMS is slated to launch later this month, free to all Nintendo Switch owners.

If you're looking for more games to play on your Switch, the adorable farming simulator Stardew Valley just made its way to Nintendo's console.
