Check out the patch notes for Nintendo's ARMS 3.2 update here


But who is 'the interloper'?

Nintendo's long-limbed arena-fighter ARMS received a pretty hefty update yesterday. Version 3.2 brings a host of bug fixes and changes to the game's UI and mechanics, while also tweaking a few of the attributes pertaining to members of the game's day-glo roster.

I do find this particular note intriguing however: "We’ve identified an interloper who has been disrupting the Grand Prix, going after our fiercest competitors. If encountered, we advise you to dispatch them with prejudice"

Sounds more like a character tease, so keep your eyes (and arms) peeled whilst you're out there scrapping away. The full list of patch notes is as follows:

  • Added new “Badge” feature.
    – Receive neat badges as a reward for fulfilling certain conditions.
    – Wear your favorite badge and show it off to your opponent.
  • Added new “Recent Replays” feature.
    – Select from a list and view replays of past matches.
    – Replay data is automatically deleted when necessary, starting with the oldest data.
    – Also, future ARMS updates will cause all replay data from past versions to be deleted.
  • During replay playback, ZR will no longer switch between targets. The X button instead is used for all camera angle switching.
  • During replay playback, + – buttons no longer toggle HP gauge display, and instead now bring up the menu.
  • Fixed issue where, at certain timings, follow up attacks after wind attacks would not land.
  • Fixed issue where, after suffering an ice attack, players on a snake board could repeatedly jump and the snake board would continuously accelerate.
  • Fixed issue where, when battle rules are set to 1-punch KO, under certain conditions fighters would become unable to move.
  • We’ve identified an interloper who has been disrupting the Grand Prix, going after our fiercest competitors. If encountered, we advise you to dispatch them with prejudice.
