Although the game hit stores shelves just yesterday, Nintendo isn't resting on its laurels when it comes to their arena-based fighter, Arms.

Announced via the Nintendo's Twitter account, the game will be receiving its first free DLC character, Max Brass, next month. From the screenshots (which you can find below), Max Brass (who acts as the boss from the game's Grand Prix mode) looks to be able to transform from an average build, average speed fighter to hulking brute. His default fists also have some sort of purple energy surrounding them, which could hint at some sort of elemental aspect to this attacks. He also has a fist where his hair should be.

Our Take
It's cool that Nintendo's already priming the pump with more characters, but considering the complaint most have about the game is the lack of single-player content, here's hoping they have that on the way, too.
