ARMS producer Kosuke Yabuki recently took part in an interview with Famitsu. That interview has been featured in Famitsu’s latest issue, and Nintendo Everything has translated the Japanese interview into English to find out any interesting details that Yabuki may have revealed. The biggest news from the interview was about the future of ARMS, as well as the IP as a whole. According to Nintendo Everything’s translation, “although it was already announced that version 5.0.0 was the last major update, Yabuki plans to make more minute updates so the game becomes easier to play, although he didn’t specify the details on that. ARMS is going to be released in Korea soon, so he expects the number of players to increase even further”.
Nintendo Everything also says that Yabuki was asked about a sequel. When this was brought up, “Yabuki says it’s still too early for that since not even a year has passed since ARMS’ release and they will still continue to update the current game. The team’s stance is that they would like to talk about this topic again when they’re finally in the right time and condition to be able to provide a big surprise to everyone.
