Dark Horse is Making a Comic Based on Arms

Nintendo and Dark Horse have announced a new partnership to produce a comic based on the Switch game Arms.

The new graphic novel will launch sometime next fall. So far we only have the above promotional artwork, which features a host of the game’s playable characters, including: Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, and Master Mummy.

All of the character designs in this graphic novel were done by Joe Ng, who is also known for his work on mostly Capcom-related series like Street Fighter, and even Transformers related comics.

Arms is available now for Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our written and video review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).

    I would’ve expected something like this for Splatoon before Arms. I guess the game’s done well then.

  • Bitterbear

    It should have been drawn by Mike Mignola. He’s very good at drawing humans deformed by a mysterious disease.


  • Travis Touchdown

    Oh yes very well.

    People are trying to write off the game because it didn’t do as well as Splatoon, but that’s because fighting games in general are less popular than shooters. By fighting game standards, ARMS has done very well for itself.
