Nintendo Switch’s Arms DLC Release Date Revealed

[Update July 7]: Arms’ Max Brass character DLC will launch on July 12, Nintendo has announced. “The Commish,” as he’s otherwise known, will arrive as part of a free update that day. Check out all the details below.

Original story [July 3] follows.

Nintendo has published a new Arms gameplay video focused on Max Brass, who has been in the game as a boss-like character since its launch, but will become playable in July. Brass is a heavy bruiser that, when his arms are charged up, can take punches without flinching.

When his health falls below 20 percent his arms become permanently charged up, so he becomes an even more formidable fighter as duels progress. Max Brass will be part of the Arms DLC update available for free in July. Watch the video above to see Max Brass in action.

Arms launched earlier in June to positive critical reception. In our review, critic Kallie Plagge called it a “strong, substantial fighting game,” but one that “takes a while to really hit its stride.”

On June 26, Nintendo released a new update for Arms that introduces new features including the Arena Mode. This is similar to online play’s Party Mode, but it is a local multiplayer mode that allows you to spectate your friends’ matches while playing in the same room. Up to four friends can be in the same lobby, with two players fighting each other while the other pair watches on.

The update also introduced a LAN Mode which offered the same options as wireless local multiplayer, but with the more stable speeds ethernet connections provide.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
