Arms Update 5.0 is the Game's Final Major Update

Nintendo's Arms Gets Its Last New Character

ARMS content support ends with today's 5.0 update, but balancing will continue

Dr. Coyle enters the ring!

The new ARMS update is out now for free on Nintendo Switch.

It feels like just yesterday that version 4.0 of Nintendo's fighter ARMS came out (it was actually just last month), and the new content isn't slowing down just yet.

She goes by the moniker of Dr. Coyle, and the villainess appears to be the final big bad of Arms. Arms 5.0 just dropped along with the new fighter Dr. Coyle, the "empress of the ARMS lab", and was appended by an announcement that, from now on, Arms will only be receiving balance patches. Dr. Coyle simply wants to be the most powerful ARMS fighter of all time, even if that means subjecting herself to her own experiments... Lokjaw, Parabola and Brrchuk options are now available.

Were she to win the Arms Grand Prix, her hard work will not have gone to waste. The stage you see is known as [NAME REDACTED].

For Grand Prix LV6 and lower, the computer will now get stronger as you get deeper into the Grand Prix.

Remember earlier this week when Nintendo said that Arms had one more update lined up for 2017?
