Dark Horse Comics has announced a new comic based on Nintendo's fighting game ARMS being written by Ian Flynn, most famously known for Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog.

The ARMS comic is debuting as part of a double-issue with a new Legend of Korra comic being given away during Free Comic Book Day, a day where comic book stores and publishers give away certain issues of comics for free to drive business into stores. The ARMS half of the book is being written by Ian Flynn with art from Joe Ng, who is best known for the Overwatch comic Binary.

Dark Horse describes the ARMS comic as follows: "In a story based on Nintendo's exclusive fighting game ARMS, a young fighter trains tirelessly to reach the top in the ARMS League Grand Prix—but first, he must defeat 599 other contenders!"

Free Comic Book Day takes place on May 5. ARMS was released in June earlier in the year, you can read our review of the game here. A Version 5.0 update has been announced with a new fighter on the way soon.
