'ARMS' Update 1.1.0 Now Available, Adds Spectator Mode

Arms is the first new Nintendo franchise to debut on the Switch console.

Added as part of its version 1.1 update, this will allow players to hook up two nearby Switches using a wired LAN adapter, which will cut down on any lag - a necessity for the more serious competitive scene where every millisecond matters.

In the grand scheme of things this is a very small step forward, but something extra nonetheless.

Have you picked up ARMS?

You can now play against users within the same local area connection.

Meanwhile, Arena mode lets up to four players join a lobby, where they will fight each other in one-on-one matches while the other players spectate. The update brings some essential updates to the game that are a great addition to many fighting games, such as LAN support. Up to four players can be in the arena, and players not now fighting watch as spectators.

Fixed an issue where Barq (of Byte & Barq) does a big warp when riding the snakeboard and finishing a special move rush. The patch also fixed the issue where ARMs would pass through the purple light boxes in the Ribbon Ring stage.

Fixed issue where Biff referred to the "ARMS Grand Prix" as the "AMRS Grand Prix".

Nintendo knows this. That's why it built LAN support into Arms and Splatoon 2 and why it hosted tournaments for both games at E3 2017. It differs from "Party" mode by adding the "Spectator" feature promised during E3. Nintendo said you have to run this version of the game to play online.
