ARMS Update 5.0 Brings About A New Fighter

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. This makes Dr. Coyle the third fighter added in the past several weeks.

Dr. Coyle, “The Rad Scientist” seems like quite the formidable fighter, making use of a host of different fist variations such as drills and nunchucks, the most notable ability conjures about double her arms, packing a devastating attack in a wider range. You can check out the trailer for Dr. Coyle, as well as Nintendo’s patch notes for update 5.
