Here comes a new challenger

Nintendo have released update 4.1 for their arena-based punch-up ARMS, bringing with it new features, badges, balance tweaks and a new member of the long-limbed roster.

The new contender is Springtron, who looks kinda angry and sports the same quiff that Egon had in The Real Ghostbusters. As for the changes made to the other fighters on the game's colourful roster, the full patch notes (courtesy of Gematsu) are as follows:

  • Added support for traditional and simplified Chinese. You can switch your language in system settings.
  • Fixed issue in online play where immediately after time runs out guarding would be cancelled not allowing players to defend post-time attacks.
  • Fixed issue in Ranked Match where certain fighters’ voices could be heard prior to the start of the match.
  • Adjusted abilities of some fighters and ARMS as below.
