Alongside adding new fighter Misango, ARMS‘ version 4.0 update also adds a new mode and a number of balance changes. For those interested in these changes, Nintendo has finally released the complete list.

First up is the new mode. Called “Party Crash,” the new mode is a limited-time event similar to the standard Party Match. The hook here is that playing the mode constantly earns a player levels, which then allow them to unlock badges and in-game prize money.

As for the balance changes, some tweaks have been made to team battles. Specifically, the rope connecting two teamed players has been increased in length; however, Arms speed in team mode has been decreased. In addition to this, a number of character-specific tweaks have been made as well.

You can check the complete patch notes below.
