Arms update trailer teases new character

And it’s a ... character

Nintendo has released a short trailer for Arms’ next update and, while it includes a few new features, the biggest news is the tease of a new character at the very end.

So what’s new? The 3.2 update will add a sparring ring level, as well as a selection of badges you can earn by fulfilling certain requirements in the game. That’s all well and good, but let’s get to that new character. And it’s clearly a ... new character!

“Arms exudes a level of creativity and mechanical sophistication that feels uniquely Nintendo,” our review stated. “It evokes memories of classic Nintendo games like Punch-Out!!, while also feeling equally fashionable and modern — and set next to Splatoon, suggests the publisher is already charting a path toward the future. With a stylish, memorable cast of characters, inventive gameplay mechanics and smart use of the Switch hardware, Arms already feels like Nintendo's next great new franchise.”

The 3.2 update is coming later this month, and will be free for all owners of Arms.
