Arms

The version 2.0 update for Arms, which is due out on July 12, will add a new Hedlock mode in addition to new playable fighter Max Brass, producer Kosuke Yabuki told Eurogamer.

“Max Brass is the main part of tomorrow’s update, but there is a new versus mode where in a fight between two or three players there’s a Hedlok mask players battle over, and when you get the mask your own character can turn into Hedlok,” Yabuki explained. “If one player turns into Hedlok it’ll be up to the other players to take him down. The Hedlok mode won’t just be available in one v one versus modes – it’ll be available online and in every multiplayer mode.”

The new update will also introduce balance adjustments, which “are done in a way not to make any character less good than they are at the moment.”

Arms is available now for Switch.
