Version 4.1 of ARMS has been released, and it includes a new playable character of sorts: Springtron!  Springtron was originally added to ARMS in the version 3.2 update as an opponent in the Grand Prix but can now be used by players. Springtron is very similar to Springman in design and function.  Springtron retains Springman’s ability to create a small shockwave when he charges his arms to deflect opponent’s attacks.  However, when his HP is below 25%, he does not gain a permanent charge on his arms.  He does have a special new ability, though.  When you charge his arms for three seconds, he will let loose a massive shockwave.  If your opponent attacks or attempts to grab during this large shockwave, the arm that they attacked with will enter its stunned phase.

 

 

A new Party Crash has also been revealed.  With the theme of Martial Arts Mash-Up, this one will pit Ninjara against Min Min as the featured characters.  It will take place from December 8th until December 11th.
