Free ARMS Update Introduces Max Brass, New ARMS And Sky Arena Stage


Nintendo has announced that a free update to ARMS will be made available on Wednesday this week.

That will see the Nintendo Switch exclusive brawler welcome Max Brass as a playable character, three new ARMS in the Nade, Roaster and Kablammer, and the Sky Arena stage to duke it out on.

Max Brass – “The Commish”

Anyone who’s made it through the ARMS Grand Prix will know that this is the one and only Max Brass, head honcho of the ARMS League and reigning champ! When Max Brass charges up, he can pump up his beefy body to maximum buffness – so much so that he barely feels punches!

That’s not all! When his health drops below a certain point, Max’s punches will stay charged up. Hang on a second… doesn’t that sound just like Spring Man?!


Just like any other ARMS competitor, Max Brass is bringing his three favourite ARMS along with him as part of the free update. Here are Max’s faves!

  • Nade – This highly volatile set of ARMS will make quite the impact, but only if you handle them with care!
  • Roaster – Those blue flames mean business! These fiery mitts swap accuracy for increased damage, so watch out if you see one of these headed your way.
  • Kablammer – An all-in-one combo that combines smashing and explosions! They say these ARMS were originally designed for demlolishing buildings…

New stage: Sky Arena

What’s a new fighter without a new stage? This outdoor fighting arena was built on top of a super skyscraper. If that wasn’t epic enough, it even features giant statues of the champ himself looming over the ring. Try to stay focussed on the fight, yeah?

ARMS is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
