Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gets Fatal Fury’s Terry Bogard as next DLC fighter


My Bogard is ready.


During Wednesday’s Nintendo Direct, the next Super Smash Bros. character was revealed: Terry Bogard, from the Neo Geo title Fatal Fury. Bogard is expected to be available in November 2019.

That’s not all. Banjo & Kazooie will also be available to play from… today! Yes, the bear and bird are ready to fight. After the Nintendo Direct aired Wednesday, Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai gave a little run-through with the new fighter. In addition, Sakurai announced the fabled Home Run Contest would be returning to Smash with the Banjo-Kazooie update on Sept. 4. 

Nintendo also announced the initial five DLC fighters originally promised for Smash will be joined by even more characters which are now in development — it didn’t provide any hints on who or when we should expect them.

How about we check in with the fan reaction? Oh… oh god.
