Classic fighting game fans rejoice: Terry Bogard of Fatal Fury fame is joining the ever-expanding Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster this November, Nintendo announced today via a Nintendo Direct.
Terry is one of SNK’s most popular characters — appearing first in 1991’s Fatal Fury and going on to become a regular in the King of Fighters series. He headlines the fourth Challenger Pack for Smash Ultimate and is the fifth additional character overall, following Piranha Plant from Super Mario Bros., Joker from Persona 5, Hero from Dragon Quest and Banjo from Banjo-Kazooie.
