ARMS Version 1.1.0 Adds Spectator Mode, Updates to Arena

Nintendo has release new updates for its newest game, ARMS.  The first update is Arena Mode.

This mode focuses on serious 1-on-1 matches and can be played via “Friends,””Local,” or “LAN Play.” Up to 4 players can be in the arena, and players not currently fighting watch as spectators.

This mode is useful because as your friends are playing and you’re spectating, you’ll see how they play and make a strategy on how to beat them. The other update is LAN mode.

LAN Play support added. You can now battle against players via LAN. On the Top Menu, click and hold the Left Stick and then press L+R to switch between “Local” and “LAN Play.”

LAN Play should make playing this game with your friends a smoother time.

    This is a very needed update. I don’t care much for my rank, but having to play ranked to play only 1v1s was a big problem. I would also like it if you could go into party mode and “ban” one or two modes, or at least make them the lowest chances for you.
