Released in June, ARMS became one of the Nintendo Switch’s most unique new titles yet, with the title stretching even further with a new character, a new map, and some more flexible control options for players.

During today’s Nintendo Direct highlighting new and upcoming titles for both the 3DS and Nintendo Switch, new footage was shown for the latest update for ARMS, which highlighted several new features that will arrive for the game tonight with the release of the new update.

Specifically, the footage showed the game’s next new character, Lola Pop, and her accompanying map and a series of new arms. In addition to the new content itself, the trailer also showed that customizable control options will be available for players to change their control layouts.

As stated during the Nintendo Direct, the new update will be available tonight after the presentation ends as a free update to all players of ARMs on Switch.
