The official Japanese ARMS Twitter account has released a video of a new playable character for Nintendo’s unconventional fighting game, who is battling in a new arena.
This new content is set to be released in the game’s next patch. This was originally confirmed in a Japanese tweet from an official ARMS account on August 8, which was translated to English by @PushDustIn.
This update is just a small balance update, but the update after that will add a new character and arms. Stay tuned for more updates! https://t.co/JOSqkhg4R5

The grainy video, although difficult to make out, shows the fighter battling with new fast spinning Arms which seem to resemble nunchucks. The mysterious character also seems to have a headband holding up his/her bunched-up hair and is wearing what appears to be Persian-style Harem pants, which may be a clue as to the character’s country of origin.

The new stage matches the previously teased image of a candy themed arena with the game’s announcer, Biff, relaxing with some coffee in the foreground. With “Sweet” being on the list of recently leaked character code-names, it stands to reason that the fighter and their stage will be candy-themed.
