The Switch’s new motion-controlled fighter Arms is getting a free new fighter soon after release.
The new fighter, Max Brass, was announced on Nintendo of America’s Twitter account. The screenshots included show him beefing up considerably mid-brawl.

We’ll have to wait and see what makes Max unique when he becomes available next month.
Meanwhile, Nintendo Versus – a new Nintendo-operated Twitter account, this one dedicated to competitive play – informed us of an upcoming spectator mode Arms will receive in a post-launch update. This means you’ll be able to check out matches, or watch along in-game if Arms takes off as an e-sport.

Nintendo hosted a tourney during E3, so it seems that they’re taking the game’s competitive prospects seriously.
