Arms Teases One Last Update for 2017

Ever with fast and furious updates, Nintendo is not content to call it a year for Arms, with one more big update planned before the end of the year.


Nintendo has been maintaining a steady pace of updates for its pugilistic fighter Arms. And while it'd be perfectly understandable for the publisher to simply pack it in for the rest of 2017, that doesn't appear to be the plan. There is currently one last update in the works for this year.

The Arms Japan Grand Prix took place over the weekend and the event concluded with a new teaser for the Arms 5.0 update. This includes a new fighter, whose identity has not yet been revealed. But the only hints for what's coming is that it appears to be a green-haired female that can teleport around the stage. Speaking of stages, a new one has also been teased. This arena looks to be set inside a factory, filled with conveyor belts and test tubes shaped like heavy bags.

That's all the information there is to go on for now, but look for additional information to come soon, since Arms 5.0 is set to go live before the end of the year.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
