ARMS' new character looks like an F-Zero racer


Can Captain Falcon show us his moves?

Nintendo did a pretty solid job of expanding the rather basic launch of Splatoon with some DLC throughout 2015. While it may have been on-disc, all of it was free and it worked in a way to keep players engaged with the title over a longer period of time then they might have otherwise. While I'm not sure if ARMS has DLC on the cartridge, Nintendo is holding to the same plan with all post launch being free and releasing in increments over the rest of 2017.

The first of many new characters is Max Brass (an existing boss character), a guy that looks straight out of F-Zero. I mean, he basically resembles Black Shadow in stature and Captain Falcon in terms of costume. Anyway, his in-game lore is that he's a returning champion who is looking to defend his title against new comers like Spring Man and Ribbon Girl. His arms are also made out of his previous championship belts, because subtlety is not his forte.

Nintendo showed off some of Max during their Treehouse stream today. Starting at roughly 23 minutes in the video below, Max looks pretty intimidating. Along with not flinching from basic punches, when his health gets to around 25%, his arms become permanently charged, basically doubling his strength. 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.
