Arms' new character is revealed, and she looks outrageous

And you can play for free this coming weekend.

After a week or more of teases, Nintendo's finally revealed Arms' new character - and she's a pantaloon-wearing, nunchuck-touting French clown who can expand her trousers in order to block incoming punches, and has the ability to block mid-air.

The new character, called Lola Pop, brings with her three new Arms and an all-new stage, and she'll be introduced in v3 of Arms at an undisclosed date in the very near future. She'll be given a full run-out during a livestream on Nintendo of Europe's YouTube channel at 9am BST tomorrow.

Arms is also getting another Global Testpunch this coming weekend, with a free demo available to download on the eShop that will be live from 3pm BST this coming Friday to Sunday at 8pm BST.
