The publisher is partnering with Nintendo to release a series of graphic novels in 2018.
If you’re like me, you grew up with Nintendo Power which offered awesome Super Mario comics in every issue. Reading those in the collecting format brings a sprang of nostalgia, so color me excited that Nintendo will be partnering with Dark Horse to produce comics for new and future titles!

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (October 05, 2017)–Earlier this year, Nintendo released ARMS, a fighting game exclusive to Nintendo Switch;.

ARMS; is a revolutionary fighting experience for all ages and skill levels.
