Nintendo’s unique stretchy-armed fighter/Dhalsim simulator ARMS has just received a new update. Version 4.0 of the game adds a new fighter, named Misango. The Mesoamerican-themed Misango comes with a unique mechanic: his special mask ability allows him to switch masks mid-battle to seemingly grant him specific buffs.

Along with a new fighter, comes a new stage; Misango’s stage is the appropriately-themed Temple Grounds.

Additionally, the update also adds three new Arms, including what seems to be one based on inflicting a poison status on an opponent.
