The reveal came during a September 4 Nintendo Direct filled with surprises including Overwatch coming to Switch.

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.

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 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.

Super Smash Bros Melee introduced many playable fan-favorite stages such as Final Destination and Battlefield, though none may be more infamous than Hyrule Temple. Now, a fan has recreated the Zelda stage within Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.

Hyrule Temple is an absolute blast to play in a casual setting as it’s one of the largest stages in the game and has five sections for players to battle in – three on the upper area, and two on the lower.

Due to the stage’s layout and Smash’s casual scene consisting of items and multi-player brawls, it’s really the perfect battleground for chaos to ensue.

As it turns out, Hyrule Temple isn’t just a good Zelda-inspired Smash stage. It also makes for a pretty unique map in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.

Hyrule Temple has appeared in other Smash games since Melee.

Redditor Skramblez took to the popular site to share their recreation with the world. In a post titled “I recreated Hyrule Temple in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2,” the gamer showed off the map in a video accompanied by Zelda music.

As you can see in the video, the stage’s sections are split into their own variants of a skate park. Some of the smaller paths are replaced by rails for skaters to grind on, and there’s plenty of gaps to clear.

The edges of the stage are replaced with ramps, so you shouldn’t be flying off the stage like you’ve still taken a Ganondorf F-Smash at a high percentage.

As a nice touch, and sticking with the Zelda lore, Skramblez even made the character look a bit like Link – at least the most Link-like the skateboarding game could allow for.

Instead of a green tunic, the player has a green hoodie. Instead of the green cap, it’s a beanie. However, the character does have long blonde hair, just like the Hero of Time.

According to Skramblez, it took fifteen hours to make the map. “The park editor’s not the most intuitive, but you can do a lot once you get used to it,” they explained.
