How to Change Colors in ARMS on the Switch

You can change colors in Arms! Here's how you do it.

Many video games, especially Nintendo games, love to hide secret little tricks, stories, or features in their main game. ARMS is no exception to that rule, and many players have been wondering why the help menu says you can change the color of your character. Because try as they might, they can't figure out precisely how to do it. 

Luckily for you, we have the answer. The instructions you need to follow are pretty straightforward, but they're easy to miss because the help menu does not tell you how to do itself. So here's the solution!

How to Change Colors in ARMS 

  1. First, highlight your character.
  2. Click the left analog stick in.
  3. Keep holding the left analog stick in, and then move it either left, down or right.
  4. Continue holding the left analog stick in. Then press the button to select your character.

And that's it! You should have a brand new color for your character now. We hope this helps!
