Still just out of arms reach.

The graphic novel series based on Nintendo's ARMS franchise is still in development with no current projected release date. This information comes directly from a representative of Dark Horse at Toy Fair NY this past weekend.

Dark Horse is set to publish the ARMS graphic novel series which was announced back in late 2017 and originally slated to have a fall 2018 release date. The project was then delayed to January 2019. A short preview of ARMS was given out as a promotional item during Free Comic Book Day in 2018, but little has been heard about the project since.

Shouldn't this be called Manga?

I have to hand it to them: They haven't given up on this yet. They're really holding tight to releasing this manga for the two people left in the world who await this with open arms.

So, the update is that there is still no update?

They are a bit too late with it now.

Shouldn't this be called Manga?

It would fall under that term in Japan, but generally outside Japan it would refer to a specifically Japanese-designed comic that's read from right to left (which Dark Horse likely wouldn't do).
