ARMS Twitter account teases new character with grainy footage

Nintendo started teasing a new character a few days back, but today we've gotten our first good luck at the character. It might be grainy footage, but we do see this character has a pretty unique design. I guess as the week goes on, we'll start to see more!

Next ARMS patch will include new character and arms

ARMS got an update tonight, which includes a number of tweaks and other fixes. While we download that, Nintendo is already teasing the next update. The tweet above confirms that it will include a new character, as well as new ARMS. Hopefully we get a sneak peek at that character soon!

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!

I love that the ARMS Twitter keeps giving us a look at characters in unique situations. This one of Mechanica might be my favorite so far!

ARMS producer loves Street Fighter, but don't expect to see Dhalsim in ARMS

Coming from a KayaneTV interview with ARMS producer Kosuke Yabuki...

"As a child, I lived the Street Fighter 2 boom, and I assume that if I make video games now it is thanks to this game, but don't expect to see Dhalsim in the game. The thought of it gives me shivers. There is so much to take into consideration, and it makes me somewhat scared! I respect [Street Fighter] too much, I would be afraid to misshape it and give it a bad image."

RUMOR - ARMS datamining may have revealed more characters

I'll post this stuff after the jump, because if the info is correct, we could be getting some early info on upcoming ARMS characters. Once again, dataminers have poured through the game to see what they can sniff out, and the results are certainly interesting.

ARMS balance update coming next week

Other than just saying that it's a balance update, we aren't quite sure how this update will change ARMS. It's due to hit sometime in the middle of next week. So far it seems like the announcement is just for Japan, but we're sure the update will hit NA/EU around the same time.
