One of the fun and quirky games that Nintendo unveiled early on for the Nintendo Switch is ARMS. It is a fighting game but in Nintendo’s style of colorful and weird characters whose arms could extend like springs (hence the name, we guess?). Now the game itself doesn’t really have much of a story to it, but that’s something Nintendo is hoping to change.

Nintendo has recently announced that together with Dark Horse, a graphic novel based on ARMS is expected to be launched in the fall of 2018. The graphic novel will be illustrated by Joe Ng and it will explore some of the game’s background story and lore, which for the most part wasn’t really elaborated on in the game itself other than characters having brief introductions.

This wouldn’t be the first time that a developer has chosen to use other mediums to tell a game’s story. In fact just recently Blizzard announced another new comic for Overwatch, which is one of the mediums that Blizzard has chosen to tell the game’s story (in addition to releasing some pretty amazing animated shorts).

It is clear that Nintendo is hoping for ARMS to be a competitive eSports title, and we have seen quite an enthusiastic community formed around the game, so perhaps this graphic novel will help draw more players in.
