It’s been quite some time since we heard head or tail from Nintendo Switch’s exclusive fighting game, ARMS. However, just in time for the Holiday season, Nintendo is pushing a new update that will introduce a new fighter: Misango.
Seen in the brand new, ARMS 4.0 Update trailer below, Misango is clad in a more tribal-like aesthetic, and his theme music matches that tone. His fists seem to utilize an animal transformation, seen in the trailer shifting between a scorpianand falcon-like bird while exchanging blows. And yes, plenty of commenters have already pointed out visual comparisons (color schemes, hairsyle, etc.) between Misango and Lucio from Overwatch.
Update 4.0 will reportedly be coming tomorrow, bringing with it some balance tweaks, a new stage, a new mode, and a new element — Poison. Even better, the update is free to everyone who already has the underlying game. How this will switch up the meta of the game is still unknown.
ARMS’s latest update before this was Update 3.2, bringing with it a slew of new features, a new charachter, and the badge system. ARMS was perhaps overshadowed by some of the more stellar Nitnendo Switch releases this year, however it is Great in it’s own right — netting an 8.0 out of 10 in DualShockers’ review.
As mentioned above, ARMS is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Check out the brand new trailer, below:
