Arms’ Version 5.0 update is now live, and it introduces the last new character for Nintendo’s stretchy fighter… forever.
Dr. Coyle is the last character to join Arms‘ roster, which now counts fifteen fighters among its ranks. As far as last characters are concerned, you can’t really top Dr. Coyle, who is the director of ARMS Laboratories and obsessed with creating the perfect arms.
A versatile, tricky fighter, Dr. Coyle has the power to levitate indefinitely and a secondary ability that lets her turn invisible by holding her shield. Then, once she’s fully charged, she’ll sprout a third arm, which is pretty nuts.
Dr. Coyle also introduces three new elemental arms to the mix. The Lokjaw breathes fire, the Parabola is an electrified umbrella, and the Brrchuk freezes opponents.
A new stage has also been added that features a conveyor belt, moving cover, and an oddly shaped border.
Unfortunately, as cool as Dr. Coyle is, her introduction to the roster signals the end of Arms‘ major updates. Nintendo recently stated that Version 5.0 will be the last big content update for the game, which just launched this summer, though it will continue to support the game will smaller patches and balance fixes. It’s a bittersweet ending to 2017 for a truly unique fighter.
Arms is available now on the Nintendo Switch.
