ARMS 5.0 Launches New Character, Enters Maintenance Mode

Adds New Fighter “Dr. Coyle,” Tweaks Balance & More

Update 5.0 will be the last major update for the game before its Evo debut at Evo Japan next month.

Nintendo's carnivalesque boxing game Arms, released in June, just received what looks like its final content update. "Of course we'll continue tuning game balance, so please continue to enjoy Arms, which we have filled with so many lively characters up to this point!"

The assets showcase a brand new fighter included in the update, named Dr. Coyle. Lokjaw, Parabola and Brrchuk options are now available.

Nintendo's Arms Gets Its Last New Character
ARMS content support ends with today's 5.0 update, but balancing will continue

Chief among them is new character Dr. Coyle, who gets in on the action along with new stage [NAME REDACTED]. Nintendo has also modified the difficulty of Grand Prix for different classes of players. If you start Grand Prix at level seven, the game will default to strong computer opponent from the start.

Despite the fact that the fervor surrounding Nintendo's newer IP has somewhat fizzled since launch, it's still receiving regular updates and new faces, which is refreshing to see.

Added new badges related to Dr. Coyle. Hard to believe we've been throwing punches this long, but it's great to see continued support for the stretchy slugfest.
