ARMS Has Been Updated To Version 5.0

As expected, ARMS has been updated to version 5.0 and the new fighter, Dr. Coyle, has been added. However, that was only one of many things that Nintendo has done to the game. In fact, Nintendo released a long list of patch notes for the update, as well as a brand new trailer that shows off Dr. Coyle in action. We’ve included both down below, so feel free to check them out.

 

  • New fighter “Dr. Coyle” is now available. Play the Grand Prix at LV6 or higher as someone other than Dr. Coyle and see what happens…
  • New ARM “Lokjaw” added.
  • New ARM “Parabola” added.
  • New ARM “Brrchuk” added.
  • New stage [NAME REDACTED] added.
  • For Grand Prix LV6 and lower, the computer will now get stronger as you get deeper into the Grand Prix.
  • For Grand Prix LV7, the computer will start out strong right from the first match, as usual.
  • You can now view stats from previous Party Crash events in “Stats.”
  • Added new badges related to Dr. Coyle.
  • Fixed issue in online play where the healing area created by HP Juice would sometimes shift position.
  • Adjusted abilities of some fighters and ARMS as follows.

    1. It’s fun but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. It’s at my local Target. They have a Switch with some demos and ARMs is one of them. Maybe if your Target has a Switch set up you could give it a go there and see what you think.

      I like it but the Grand Prix is hard when you get 4 and higher (I’m not the best for sure) I want the Springtron badge but you gotta make it to him without losing a round on level 4 or higher which I can never do lol. Online party mode is pretty cool though.

    2. Compared to Splatoon and the average single-player, this is the better investment, especially if you have a weaksauce internet connection between your router and the tv set. If only this game existed in 2014/2015.
