New Characters Twintelle, Byte & Barq, and Kid Cobra Revealed for Arms

Nintendo has announced new playable characters for Arms.

The characters Twintelle, Byte & Barq, and Kid Cobra were all confirmed for the coming arena-battling game (We’re awaiting an official trailer, for now enjoy leaked gameplay above).

Alongside the new characters was the confirmation that new levels, characters, and new arms modules will be released post-launch as free downloadable content.

Here’s a breakdown of each character, via Nintendo:

The charismatic Snakeboarder, Kid Cobra, is swapping out his selfie stick to join #ARMS! His goal? Increasing viewership of his livestreams.

The A-list movie star, Twintelle, is joining #ARMS with her signature curls that are long enough to be weaponized!

Introducing, Byte & Barq, the 2-in-1 tag team in #ARMS! Security robot Byte and his robotic canine partner Barq fight together as a pair!

Arms is launching for the Nintendo Switch on June 16th.
