Nintendo has released a new software update for ARMS, that sees the extendable arm-flinging fighter on version 5.4.0.
This has added compatibility with the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app, that, once you have matched with someone when playing online in Party Match, Ranked Match, Friends or Party Crash modes, will let you choose whether to use voice chat or not.
Video Playback in the Dashboard has been smoothened out, while Nintendo has continued to adjust some ARMS in an effort to continue to balance the game.
