Nintendo’s springy-limbed arena fighter ARMS has received a new update, which brings the game up to version 5.3. It adds some new features and some balance tweaks to the cast.

The biggest new feature in ARMS‘ version 5.3 update is the new “Dashboard”. Here, players can keep track of regional and worldwide rankings, including those for the Party Crash mode. In addition to this, the “Dashboard” also features various videos, including “Tips & Techniques” and “Fighter Focus” videos that show of things players can do with characters and Arms, as well as tournament videos.

Other things included in the patch include Korean language support — coinciding with the game’s release in South Korea last month — and 15 new images in the game’s gallery.

Of course, no update is complete without a few balance changes to the cast. You can check these out below.
