News out of Gamescom this week for all you ARMS fans. Personally, I loved the game and play it casually, but there was something missing from keeping me addicted for weeks on end like other competitive games. Regardless, Lola Pop is being added to the roster soon, and that means I’ll have to pick it up and check it out. Yes, she’s free, as are the three new Arms and a new stage. There’s also a free weekend for all Switch owners this weekend, so check out the details below.
Fans of Nintendo Switch fighter game will soon have a new character to use as part of the next free update: street-performing pugilist Lola Pop. A well-traveled clown with a personality as colorful as her clothing, Lola Pop’s key ability is inflating her body like a balloon, providing her with great defensive qualities. With three new Arms and a new stage, players can look forward to developing new strategies whether competing locally against friends or taking on the world online.*
Those who haven’t yet sampled the fast and fun fighting action of the ARMS game can do so for free this weekend with the ARMS Global Testpunch, which runs 8 a.m. PT Friday, Aug. 25, through 2 p.m. PT Sunday, Aug. 27. To participate, simply download the free ARMS Global Testpunch software from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, then fire it up and jump into online multiplayer matches.
