Unfortunately for Arms fans, the final update marks the last big one from Nintendo.

The latest update for Nintendo's brawler, ARMS has dropped, introducing the usual balance and bug fixes but also bringing about a new character to the fighting ring.

For reference, let's go over what was added to the game since launch: five different characters, four of which came with three new Arms each, plus five stages, in a game where stage design absolutely matters. Previously hinted at in older story updates, we are now officially bearing witness to the rise of Dr. Coyle.

The featured new Arms include the Lockjaw, Parabola, and the Brrchuck seen in the announcement video. You can check out the full patch notes below. Take a look at Dr. Coyle in action with her reveal trailer below!
