Arms has been out in the wild for some time now and since then we’ve gotten only one new fighter in Max Brass, the boss of Arms. Like it’s Nintendo brethren, Splatoon, Nintendo confirmed that Arms would see updates that bring new characters, new stages, and new gear.
In a post on the Arms Reddit, the community has been data mining Arms for potential surprises – of which they found nine potential new fighters including Chain, Coil, Plant, Robo, Scroll, Sumo, Surprise, Sweet, and Twintale.
Keep in mind, these may very well be placeholder names for the fighters, but it’s good to see something in the information confirming new fighters.
Belt (Max Brass) Chain Coil
Mee (Min Min)
Ninja (Ninjara) Plant
Police (Byte and Bark)
Ribbon (Ribbon Girl) Robo Scroll
Snake (Kid Cobra)
Spring (Spring Man) Sumo Surprise Sweet Twintale
