Nintendo’s slap-happy fighter ARMS continues to get post-launch support as its latest update will bring a new fighter and several quality-of-life improvements. The previously-announced fighter Max Brass (seen above) is the first addition to the game’s roster, while the rest of the update adds stat tracking for all modes of play.

The new update will also keep track of:

  • Your last 100 battles in regular fights and mini-game (including win percentage)
  • Your perfect-round wins
  • Your average strength in finishing matches
  • Punch accuracy
  • Number of punches
  • Longest win streak

The latest patch for ARMS will hit this Wednesday. Nintendo has promised additional fighters and new items in future updates in the not-so-distant future, similar to the roll-out of free updates that lies ahead for the upcoming Splatoon 2.
