Nintendo officially revealed the next fighter in their flagship fighting game series Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

The announcement came in the wake of an SNK copyright appearing on the game’s Challenger Pack 4 on Nintendo’s UK website, leading many to believe the next DLC would in fact be from an SNK title.
Prominent leaker Vergeben had hinted earlier that Terry Bogard would be next up in a GameFAQs post on September 2.
The Smash Direct indicated that Terry would be arriving in November and even more DLC fighters were coming in the future.
Banjo-Kazooie is coming to Smash on September 4
N64 era Nintendo fans will finally be able to get their hands on Banjo-Kazooie in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Catching many fans off guard, it was announced that the Microsoft-owned duo would be making their way to the game later on in the day.
Banjo-Kazooie were first revealed to be coming to Smash back at E3 2019 along with Dragon Quest’s Hero who has since entered the game, albeit not without controversy due to the fighter’s reliance on RNG.
More about Banjo's moveset is set to be revealed after the direct.
The release window for Banjo was first hinted by 7/11 stores in Japan with a pop-up display featuring the newest fighter. The displays were intended to stay up until September 15, 2019.
The last time 7/11 displays were put up, they advertised Hero’s imminent release back in July. In that case, the displays went up July 24 and Hero was released on July 30.
