Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury is now available to download and play in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director, Masahiro Sakurai, held a 45-minute livestream showcasing Terry’s moveset and stage – which also revealed 50 tunes from SNK’s library that will be added to the game as part of Challenger Pack 4.Terry’s moves are inspired by his many appearances in SNK fighting games, and his kit brings a number of unique mechanics to the roster. Similar to Street Fighter’s Ryu and Ken, Terry automatically turns to face his opponent in one-on-one matchups to make it easier to use his classic fighting game command inputs. He has weak and strong versions of each of his special moves, and the strength is determined by how long you hold the button.
Terry also has a back-side Special Move – a first for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Additionally, if Terry’s damage goes over 100% he unlocks the ability to use his Super Special Moves, which are high-risk, high-reward options that Sakurai said should only be used when you need to turn the tide of battle.
The new stage, King of Fighters Stadium, also presents a new mechanic. The edge of the stage is walled off and fighters will eventually break through the wall after they’ve accumulated enough damage. 20 characters from King of Fighters and other SNK fighting games will appear in the background, including Terry’s rival – Geese Howard, Art of Fighting’s Ryo Sakazaki, and more. New SNK-themed Mii fighter costumes are also available for purchase as of today.Sakurai mentioned the notable absence of SNK staple Mai Shiranui, and, with a smile, said she was excluded because, "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is for good boys and girls of many different ages, so we decided not to feature her."
As for the music, Sakurai said he sent SNK a list of 50 tracks in hopes 10 or 20 of them would be approved, saying he was surprised when he received permission to use all 50 he requested. The tunes are from various SNK games and franchises beyond Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters – like Art of Fighting, Samurai Shodown, Metal Slug, and others. Sakurai said he doesn’t think Nintendo will ever be able to include this much music in one update again.Earlier this week, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate became the best-selling fighting game of all time. The game will continue to get DLC in the future, even after the Fighters Pass wraps up. The final character for the first wave of DLC has not yet been announced.
