The paint isn’t even dry on ARMS Version 4.0 and Nintendo’s already pushing out another hefty update. This update adds another new fighter, Springtron (which is really just a clone of Spring Man), new badges, balance tweaks and bug fixes.

We’ve included the full changelog below.

    • The mysterious new fighter “Springtron” can now be selected.
      • His initial ARMS are the same as Spring Man.
      • When Spring Man unlocks new ARMS Springtron will also have access to them.
    • New badges added.
      • Added badges that are unlocked via specific fighter/ARM combinations.
      • Added badges that are unlocked by fulfilling certain conditions on stages with environmental gimmicks.
      • And more!
    • Added support for traditional and simplified Chinese. You can switch your language in system settings.
    • Fixed issue in online play where immediately after time runs out guarding would be cancelled not allowing players to defend post-time attacks.
