Update: Bumped to the top. Full patch notes added below.

Original: As promised, the latest update for ARMS has gone live. All players can download version 4.1.0.

Nintendo did add in something new… sort of. Springtron is now officially a playable character. Originally, Springtron was brought in as a boss character as part of another update from October. Now, however, he’s actually playable.

Springtron is the highlight of today’s update, but Nintendo also in badges, made balance adjustments, and more. We’ll update this post with the full patch notes when we have them.
