ARMS Just Got A Massive Balancing Update

 

Nintendo has just released version 2.1.0 for ARMS on Nintendo Switch. Surprisingly, Nintendo had recently revealed that the game had sold over a million copies, which means that their plan to support the game with free content for months to come was a good decision.

Unfortunately, this update doesn’t include a new fighter (or even a new ARM), but Nintendo revealed that the next major update would bring one of each. What this update does bring though is a bunch of new training initiatives as well as some much needed balancing changes for all of the fighters and ARMS.

  • “Training” moved to the top menu.
  • We added five items of “training”. In addition, the difficulty level of the standard was indicated in each item.
  • We changed the pose menu, result menu, and replay menu of “training” to improve convenience.
  • When three to four people started a battle, we showed how to switch the target. Also, we made the cursor to be displayed over the target over a certain period of time.
  • Adjusted how energy of the special rush is settled, and reduced the amount of increase when the punch did not hit the opponent.
  • Regarding the “Stage of Stage” of the record, the stage with less frequent playing has been made difficult to be selected even if the winning percentage is high.
  • We reviewed the hit judgment area of the fighter and improved the problem not hit even if it looked like it hit.
  • Fixed a problem that skipping an ending at a specific timing causes the game not to proceed.
  • We adjusted the performance of some fighters and arms as follows.
