New Update for Nintendo’s Arms Is Available Now

Posted by at 12:46 pm on October 18, 2017

Nintendo Switch’s exclusive fighting game Arms has a new update out now. Version 3.2, announced last week, contains some new features, some balance changes, and more. Unfortunately, the character that many believed to be a new playable mecha version of Spring Man is not, in fact, a playable fighter. Instead, he’s a new boss character called Springtron who appears in the latter stages of Grand Prix if you don’t lose a match.

Despite the lack of a new playable fighter, version 3.2 includes a fair amount of content. The Badge feature rewards you for completing challenges such as winning your first Grand Prix or playing a number of matches with one character. There’s also a new Recent Replays feature, which saves replays from your most recent matches so you can watch them back. Make sure you watch any important matches back relatively quickly, however, since Nintendo says “replay data is automatically deleted when necessary, starting with the oldest data.” Updating Arms will also delete all stored replay data.

Meanwhile Lola Pop, who was added last month in an update, has received a buff in this latest patch–her movement speed has been increased. In fact, many fighters have received boosts in speed; take a look at the full patch notes at the bottom of this article.

Recent Arms updates have included two new stages–Sparring Ring and Via Dolce–and more. Nintendo has continually added new Arms content since launch, with previous free DLC adding another fighter called Max Brass and including a new set of training exercises.
