Arms 5.0 Introduces Dr. Coyle

The last update of the year for Arms is ready and so is a mad scientist named Dr. Coyle.


Remember earlier this week when Nintendo said that Arms had one more update lined up for 2017? Well, that update is now available and that mystery character has been revealed.

Meet Dr. Coyle, creator of the Party Crash program! She shows up as the newest boss character in the Grand Prix mode when played at LV6 or higher. She'll come equipped with the Lokjaw, Parabola, and Brrchuk Arms. She'll also gain brief invisibility after a succssful guard, along with the ability to attack, dash, and block while levitating.

She'll be waiting in the [NAME REDACTED] stage. (As the Arms website notes, that is the actual name of the stage.) Here, players will have to watch out for the conveyor belts that are lugging giant heavy tubes around, which can get in the way of a fighter's punches.

Check out Dr. Coyle in action in the video below. Arms 5.0 is now ready to download. For the full patch notes, visit the Nintendo Support site.

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?

        It's a great game but a tough sell for $60 if you don't plan on playing online. I've clocked around 40hrs so far but don't fire it up as often as I used to.

        I'd already own it if it was $20. $60 for that game is too much.

        I want it, but I'm just never going to pay $60 for it. I'm not big on online with the Switch so it'd be to mess around with with friends and it aint worth $60 to me for that.
