ARMS - Version 2.1 update now available, full patch notes

Moved “Training” to the top menu.
Added five exercises to “Training”, and added difficulty level indications.
Adjusted the way the rush gauge fills, decreasing the amount gained for punches that do not connect with the opponent.
When 3-4 players start a battle, instructions on how to switch targets will now be displayed. A cursor will also be displayed above the current target for a set time.
Adjusted hitbox sizes for fighters, improving issues where hits were not registered despite looking like hits.
Changed the pause, results, and replay menus in “Training” to be more convenient.
For “Best Stage” in Stats, made it harder for less frequently played stages to be selected, even if you have a high win ration on them.
Corrected issue that caused the game to hang-up when the ending was skipped at a particular time.
We have made the following adjustments for some fighters and arms:

Thanks to Magitroopa for the heads up!

"Trained Barq to get up quicker"


But what about stability?

All this is awesome but I really wanted a new character to get me to turn that game on again....

Game's only been out for, what? Two months? And you're already giving up on it?

I doubt a new character will keep your interest in it except for seeing what it is and returning to the same state it was before it. Doesn't seem like your kind of deal, then.

I've put 20 hours into Arms. I enjoy the gameplay and yeah you're mostly right I'm more of a fan of the character designs (can't wait to see what wacky designs the team comes up with next!) than the actual game. I don't think it's a bad game just kinda basic and fun in like short 20 minute sessions.

I was going to post that too and was so happy when I saw that you had beaten me to it and been so well-received. That little touch is the kind of thing that makes Nintendo excellent instead of just good.

Although no "new content", still a pretty substantial balance update.

There's 5 more training scenarios.

That's a pretty neat patch. I think I'll get back to ARMS today. After I'm done with Splatoon 2 daily session. After I made progress in my hardcore zelda save. After I spent 3 hours after thinking hey let's play Slime-San for 5 minutes. After I've checked Gonner's daily challenge.

Oh god.

Is there a forum that's testing exact numbers? Always appreciate a Mechanica upgrade Smile
