Part of the charm of ARMS is the sheer depth of customization when it comes to the titular weapons with which the fighters do battle. There’s thousands upon thousands of possible combinations and setups, yet Nintendo isn’t content to just call it day quite yet. The company already teased the upcoming new fighter, and now it’s also shown off a brief look at one of the new ARMS due to come out in the next update.

The new ARM looks like a defensive shield-type weapon, and it seems to have some sort of counterattack potential, as we watch Helix punch it and get blown back for his efforts. Take a look and see for yourself:

Hopefully all these brief looks on Twitter are pointing towards the update coming out sometime soon, it seems like this one is going to make a fair bit of change.
