During this year’s Gamescom, Nintendo revealed Lola Pop, the newest character headed to ARMS. Now, over on the Nintendo Treehouse Log, we have a more detailed look at Lola and her abilities.

 

Here’s an in-depth look at Lola Pop and her playstyle:

 

Lola Pop is a character who has interesting movement options and her movement patterns, if timed properly, are quite…odd. You see, unlike most characters, her movement changes—but only while she’s in a blocking state. I mean, I don’t normally do this, but I find myself blocking a lot more with her than with anyone else because it’s FUN. In short, she has three movement options she can execute during her inflated block state:

 

· She can move forward and backward while blocking

· She can execute a very fast dodge in a sharp arc to the right or left

· She can also jump higher than normal

 

By pressing and holding the dodge button while she’s in the air, you can use this weird fast-falling bouncy block that makes her bounce when she hits the ground. Okay, I know what you’re thinking: but does it combo?” And the answer is “yes, yes it does.” You can chain these bounces one after another, but the moment you punch between bounces, you won’t be able to bounce again. Come to think of it, this makes her the only character that can technically block while in the air.
