Max Brass is Arms' first DLC character

ARMS for Nintendo Switch Releases in Nintendo eShop and Physical

Instead, you need to plan punches to get through a guard or to catch an opponent landing in a different area.

The new character is Max Brass, who's been the top fighter for years, and has the ability to avoid flinching while taking attacks when his arms are charged up. Announced along with the first wave of Switch titles, ARMS has since been a bit of an unknown quantity.

Fighters use interchangeable, extendable arms to duke it out in the various diverse arenas.

Then stick around for the exhibition match to see if the best Arms player can defeat Yabuki.

There are a variety of characters to choose from, each with their own unique stats and abilities. I'm not sure I'd ever play him (I've never been one for bruiser types in fighting games), he's bound to have an audience for people who love to dish out and take pain.

Doctor says Rep. Scalise's vital signs stable
Prior to the update on Scalise's medical condition, an aide read a statement from Scalise's wife, Jennifer Scalise . Know that, Scalise's surgeon tried to clear up confusion about reports of his condition during those early hours.

Arms DLC is already on its way in the form of new fighter Max Brass.

To cap off a month of all things ARMS - highlighted by two popular Global Testpunch events and a live-streamed tournament this week at the E3 video game conference - Nintendo's unique new fighting game is now available in stores and in Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch console. As per Nintendo Versus, this post-launch update will allow players to watch matches or spectate them in progress.

Nintendo's stepped up their DLC game in this era of the Switch with a big one coming to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild soon and a couple more on the way. While there are a lot of game modes in ARMS, undoubtedly the most competitive is the Ranked Mode which is not unlocked from the start of the game.

It's hard to not recommend Nintendo's newest franchise in a while, even with that steep $60 price point. Using the motion controls of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers, players can throw a punch with a flick forward, move around the stage by tilting the controllers in the desired direction or even execute a powerful throw by moving both hands forward at the same time.

I went into this demo with next to zero expectations. What are your thoughts on ARMS thus far?
