Fatal Fury's Terry Heads to Smash, More DLC Fighters Coming

The Smash Ultimate SNK fighter is revealed, Banjo and Kazooie are out now, and more DLC fighters are on the way.

SNK's Neo Geo games have had quite a presence on the Nintendo Switch since the system launched in 2017, and that presence is about to get even bigger with the inclusion of Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

In a not-so-surprising surprise announcement, Nintendo confirmed SNK's Terry will be added to the Smash Ultimate roster as the fourth Battle Pass DLC character.

Apart from a flashy intro video, we didn't get a whole lot of information about the newest roster member, though Terry will be available sometime in November.

That's not all, though. Banjo and Kazooie's Smash debut release date was revealed as well — and it's today, presumably right after the Direct finishes (read: now).

Smash fans hoping for even more characters are in luck, too. Not only is Banjo-Kazooie landing in the roster later today, but Nintendo confirmed more characters outside those originally promised.

As of now, there are no hints who these characters may be, how many might be coming, and when they can be expected after the fifth DLC character launches — but they're coming, nonetheless.
