A new minute and a half promo trailer for Nintendo’s ARMS was released over the course of the weekend during this year’s Anime Expo event. The trailer is a brief reminder that the character Max Brass will be made freely available to play in ARMS sometime later this month.
The trailer starts by doing a little bit of body body glorification, highlighting Max’s thick pecs, tight buns, and shapely thighs. One would think that Nintendo had a bit of a muscle fetish with the way the camera lovingly graces the well sculpted stature of Max’s brass.
After spending 30 seconds with a little bit of body worship, we then get to see Max in action, throwing bombs in the form of his fists.
We see that he can charge up his attacks and lob out purple-powered punches that can accurate smack opponents across the face with pinpoint precision.
Max’s standard fists are strikingly straight and accurate when fired off, and have the ability to out-maneuver larger fists and clobber over smaller fists.
Max’s second set of fists are hammer-like appendages that smack the ground where they land, creating short shockwaves of energy that can damage opponents even if they don’t hit them directly.
Near the end of the trailer we see Max’s ability to grow bigger and expand his physical girth in order to deal more damage. The downside to this is that he becomes a much larger target for his opponents.
To be considered a “large” character, Max is surprisingly agile. He’s capable of quickly maneuvering around the arena and blocking off escape for his opponents. It will be interesting to see how players adapt to his play-style and stature during the game.
You’ll be able to step into the tight body-spandex of Max Brass at some point later this month for the Nintendo Switch’s fighting game exclusive, ARMS. The character DLC will be a free update.
