There is a new mode and some much-needed fixes for the gameplay.

If you played Arms, you know that Max Brass is currently the boss of the game. Soon he will be released as yet another playable character, but meanwhile the developers released the first major patch. It fixes some issues with various characters, naming etc., but there are also two additions.

The first one is added support for LAN Play. “You can now battle against players via LAN. On the Top Menu, click and hold the Left Stick and then press L+R to switch between Local and LAN Play,” we read. The second is Arena Mode, which adds 1 vs 1 fights, with up to 4 players in the lobby (the two that aren’t playing can watch the match as spectators).
