Yesterday, we reported on the latest Arms update (5.0.0), which brought a new fighter, new ARMs, a new stage, and much more. While this was a fantastic update, which players are sure to love, it’s also the final content update that the game will be getting.
Nintendo posted the following message on their Japanese site:
As a major update, this one [the just released v.5 update] will be the last update. Of course, we will continue to adjust the game’s balance in the future, so I hope you will continue to enjoy ARMS.
Arms has only been out for six months, a short amount of time for a fighting game to stop putting out content. On the other hand, a lot of free additional content has been crammed into those six months of updates. Five new fighters, 12 new ARMs, and five new stages have been made freely available to all players.
Arms will still receive balance tweaks, so the game isn’t going to be totally abandoned.
Are you still playing Arms? Sad to see the content updates stop? Let us know.
