A few months ago, it was announced that Dark Horse Comics would publish an official comic based on ARMS. And earlier this week, it was revealed that an ARMS comic would be given away for free as part of the Free Comic Book Day Silver on May 5th:
In a story based on Nintendo’s exclusive fighting game ARMS, a young fighter trains tirelessly to reach the top in the ARMS League Grand Prix—but first, he must defeat 599 other contenders! ARMS is written by Ian Flynn (Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man) with art by Joe Ng (Street Fighter, Overwatch: Binary).
Speaking of ARMS, here’s some screenshots of the upcoming Ver. 5.0.0 update for ARMS, to be released later today/tomorrow (December 21st/22nd, depending on your timezone):
